Ghanaian pastor Apostle Dr. Daniel Adjei has hit the streets over the inability of his church members to give fat offerings and tithes.
Apostle Adjei, who is the head pastor of the Asylum Down branch of the Evangelical Methodist Church International lamented that some christians have become broke due to lack of jobs and hardship in Ghana.
He said, in view of this, christians are no longer able to give offerings and pay their tithes in church.
Apostle Daniel Adjei indicated that he personally joined the #FixTheCountry demonstration in Accra on August 4, 2021 for the government to sit up and work for the people.
According to him ‘This demonstration is a peaceful demonstration. We are not going to destroy any state property. We are not against NDC or NPP, but we are against the bad leadership of this nation.
‘These days our church members cannot give offerings or pay their tithes because all our members are broke. There are no jobs in this nation that is why I have joined this demonstration’.
But the Evangelical Methodist Church is unhappy with the pastor’s comments, which has gone viral on social media.
The church has made it clear that Apostle Dr. Daniel Adjei’s utterances do not in anyway represent its position stressing that the church advocates for change of mind through ‘education and not public demonstrations’.
A statement from the church sighted by Kasatintin.com urged all concerned to disregard those ‘loose’ utterances by its Asylum Down head pastor.
‘The Evangelical Methodist Church has built a school, and given back to the society and among others. We want to set the record that the finance of the church does not rely on tithes and offerings’.
The statement further indicated that the pastor’s association with the church is actively under review.
