The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) says non-members of the church will not be allowed to minister in its parishes around the world.
In a memo that went viral on Monday, titled “Invitation of Guest Ministers in RCCG, and Dated January 5”, the church said: “No external preacher, speaker or minister should be permitted on any of our altars or platforms.”
“Anyone intending to invite a guest minister, speaker, or preacher to their parish must ensure that the individual is a recognised member of the RCCG,” the memo reads.
Oladele Balogun, special assistant to the general overseer on administration, said the directive was issued by Enoch Adeboye and addressed to all continental overseers, deputy continental overseers, assistant continental overseers, and pastors in charge of regions/provinces worldwide.
The memo also warned that any minister who violated the directive would face “severe disciplinary measures” and may be relieved of his ministerial duties in the mission.
Clarifying the position of the church, Olaitan Olubiyi, RCCG head of media and public relations, said the decision is final and “a total ban” on all our parishes from inviting people from other churches.
“In all our churches, whatever program is being held, only pastors within the RCCG can be invited. Non-RCCG preachers are not allowed henceforth,” he said.
