Click for Full Image Size It all started 6 years ago while David Olutayo was the Bishop-in-charge of the Abuja parish of the Winners Chapel founded by Bishop David Oyedepo who is married to the sister of Olutayo hence the latter was seen as one of the pillars of Winners Chapel in the country.

He had been around since the beginning of the church.It was therefore inconceivable that he would be treated nonchalantly by the church headed by his own brother-in-law.

He therefore moved out and established his own church,Good Tidings Bible Church.

It took off in the same Area 1 where he once headed Winners Chapel.Naturally,many of those who believed in his calling as well as those who believed he was not fairly treated followed him down and they held on till today as he heads 1 of the big churches in the city,with a structure that would make many pastors green with envy.

A few weeks back,David Olutayo lost his father who incidentally is the father-in-law to David Oyedepo and so the latter had to attend the burial.
The 2 men of God were said to have embraced with the Winners Chapel founder asking that his former Pastor forget what happened in the past and that they should turn a new leaf.

Oyedepo was also said to have told Olutayo that he would be willing to come to Abuja and minister in Olutayo’s church any time he gets an invitation.

We gathered that it was an ecstatic Olutayo who broke the news to his congregation at the church service penultimate Sunday while thanking his church members who attended his late father’s internment.Announcing the anticipated visit to his church members he also told them that the 6-year rift between him and Living Faith founder was over.

So these great men of God have been habouring rift for 6 Long years and yet they preach on for giveness it's unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As far as am concern most pastors break away from their former churches not because they are too zealous rather they do it out of selfish interests. that's more or less reason churches now are business center not worship center. may God help us..............

Watch your tongue, or else...!
Barbs | 10/17/2011 5:22:43 PM |
The Bible says we should "FORGIVE OTHERS" , it does not say we should be s****d enough to open our eyes and allow anybody to come and put a sharp pointed stick into our eyes; all in the name of forgiveness!
Forgiveness is good , but f*****hness and carelessess in a human being are very dangerous.
Even God rebuked King Hezekiah for his f*****h forgiveness towards his arch enemy ,in the Bible.
Read Isaiah 39:1-8.
We should watch our tongues so that God would not slap our mouths, especially when we do not know the full details of what has caused a falling apart of close family members or friends.
I do not know what transpired between Bishop Oyedepo and his inlaw ; but whatever it is , the reason must be very strong for a wise man of God of his level to cut off , just like that , for six whole years!
A lot of unbelievable things are happening inside families nowadays. We have to watch carefully and be prayerful , always.
Did the Bible not say " a man's enemies are those in his own household" ? Micah 7:6.
This Bishop knows about forgiveness and preaches forgiveness more than all of us commenting here.
Surely he is also wise enough to know how to put a wide gap between himself and certain people , including this his inlaw , if necessary, for reasons best known to him. Maybe ,until God confirms to him that person has repented genuinely from his or her cunning ways.

I pity people so much, most of d pple dat commented against Papa does not know how to read between line and they are not men of principles, who told u they were keeping malice, even if they do, wat is ur own business. Many pple will even go to the extent of killing not even to talk abt malice. I respect Dayo so much but what he does is practically wrong, dat church he started is built on rebellion, if of a truth God called him I expected him to do the followings 1. He shuld have honoured the trnasfer to PH 2. He shouldnt have planted his church close to d winners 3. He shuld have moved to an unknown place if he is sure of his calling. All d same, why will his promotion be so rapid Bishopric level. We all know wat happened but thaked God dat Christ is being preached.

With humble spirit pple should no that whatever God did not plant will naver grow not to talk of lasting I belie olutayo was not ignorant of God.s principle listen if God did called u to be a founder u can naver stand papa is man sometimes men forget that God utter things to show us that he is God above us if only we wil understand that it is God that is leading both ministries & men fr an exaple I was once on tranfer f specific time after some time the leadership ask me to remain there but God ask me to leve & I left but the leadership was not happy but I have obyed God if I refuse to oby God & die there the work of God will continue I belie olutayo heared God & obyed his voice & de evidence is there today this is not issue of unforgivenss is about rebelion understand de satinty of this issues any rebelious child can be disown papa thought it was rebelious that the child is whate of disowning but unknown to him and later rialise that it was the finger of God and had no choice than to hug it pls understand it God bless U

On Bishop Olutayo
Richard | 12/9/2012 8:39:45 AM
This writer -like all others whom the bible says their minds and hearts have been darkened by the god of this world says 'David Olutayo was the Bishop-in-charge of the Abuja parish of the Winners Chapel founded by Bishop David Oyedepo who is married to the sister of Olutayo hence the latter was seen as one of the pillars of Winners Chapel in the country.'
May be you forgot that the Winners Chapel is not a man-made organisation like other so called churches. The commission has a God set agenda and mandate which has got nothing to do with whosoever you are -whether you are married to the Bishop or mother-n-law of the Bishop or the assistant Bishop to the Bishop etc!
Moreover this ignorant writer says '.It was therefore inconceivable that he would be treated nonchalantly by the church headed by his own brother-in-law.' Well may be before you took up your keyboard to write this you spoke to Bishop Olutayo, heard his story, and then went to Cannanland and also spoke to Bishop Oyedepo and concluded the man had been treated 'nonchallantly' ! Is that what you did? Mr. f**l?

Thanks Richard, another f*****h comment by this writer is 'Olutayo ... was seen as one of the pillars of Winners Chapel in the country.' I wonder how he arrived at this conclusion when the church has no human pillar by whatever descriptions! I think it's the fault of the internet age whereby any f**l who is able to cut and paste anything are now parading themselves as website news forum, journalist, etc.

Most time, until you face challenges before you could discover yourself.
what happen btw them was an avenue for olutayo to discover himself that
him also could own a ministry.
Secondly, is a lesson for those who always rely on connection..
All the same, pastor go pastor come. it thus not realy affect Oyedepo ministry.
Anyone operating on divine instruction of God always remain ever increasing..
On olutayo side, the anointing he has tap from oyedepo is more than enough for
him to spark the Globe..

People who are not mindful of the consequences of discussing anointed men of God I in bad light shld desist from doing that. Both Bishop David Oyedepo and Pastor Dayo Oyedepo are called by God. We shld not judge anyone but to allow the righteous and mighty God to judge.
