When you talk about church leadership, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye will be in the best position to lecture you on that having lead the `global church for more than two decades.
He said recently at the Third Annual Birthday Public Lecture organized by the church to commemorate his 75th birthday that churches today lack good leadership.
He stated that one of the problems Nigeria encounter is leadership . He said that the church leadership is supposed to be an example for other leaders to emulate but it is very shameful the church has bred bad leaders that can not live by example.
“If there is anywhere leadership should be recommended, it should be from the church. But it is unfortunate that the worst leadership is from the church. We should go and check ourselves. Are we in true leadership or we are in falsehood? Because this has been the groaning of my heart for many years and I pray about it fervently.
“I challenge the leaders in this church that what the Bible says about elders, I have not seen it. But things are changing and I want us to be part of that change.
“The problem of corruption which we have in this nation would not have been there if everybody is contented with what he or she has. But people love to do more than they have. They want to show off to their children, and the children also when they get to school or are with their colleagues, are not satisfied because they were not brought up to be satisfied.”
