Pastor Adeboye remains the “worldwide General Overseer” of RCCG

Contrary to earlier reports making rounds that Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has retired and stepped down as the General Overseer of the church, a clarification has been offered stating that Pastor Adeboye only relinquished his position as head of the Nigeria church but will remain RCCG’s worldwide overseer.

According to a statement signed by Leke Adeboye, the Pastor’ last son and personal assistant, the move was made in compliance with the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council for all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs; which stipulate that heads of non-profit organisations, like churches, now have a maximum period of 20 years to lead their organisations. And such heads are also not permitted to hand over to their families.

Leke said, “We appeal to members to educate people around them and not spread inaccurate information, as Pastor E.A Adeboye remains the General Overseer of RCCG Worldwide.”
