Crisis is currently brewing at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) following the appointment of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s wife, Evelyn as the new leader of the church.
Evelyn was appointed leader of SCOAN two days ago by the church.
But a statement issued by some members of the church in Akure, Ondo State under the auspices of Global Congress of SCOAN Members (GCSM) and signed by one Adedeji Opeyemi, President of GCSM and Secretary, Mr. Brown Chimieze, the SCOAN members called on all Christians and people all over the world to help in rescuing the church from ruin.
They said they were worried about the emergence of Evelyn Joshua, the wife of the late founder who made unilateral declaration of herself as the new leader of the Church.
According to the statement, she claimed a congregation of 2000 Church members appointed her, saying this is ridiculous.
“Where did the meeting hold? Was it through a Yes vote? Was it through election? Was it through ‘anointing’ by the 2000 members?
“Where is the resolution of the 2000 members? Can 2000 members pick a successor in a Church with millions of members all over the world in five continents? What is the constitution of the Church? Was it followed?” They queried.
They said Pastor TB Joshua never ran the Church on the basis of profit, saying that today, there was a design by the newly self- imposed leader, Evelyn to commercialise every activity in the Church for money.
The statement added that Evelyn Joshua is not a Pastor and was never anointed by Pastor Joshua.
They added that she was not part of the founding members of the Church, question the basis of her emergence as the person now parading herself as the new leader.
The statement said under the aegis of SCOAN Congress, made up of members from 188 countries, they shall continue to inform and educate the public, people all over the world on every development at SCOAN until wisdom, the ways of God and common sense prevailed.
