Richest Pastors in Nigeria: A pastor acts as a link between God and His followers; their primary role is to spread the gospel and teach God’s words to people.
Their secondary roles include providing guidance and advice, praying for people, performing healings, miracles, and deliverances.
Secondary duties have become the determining factors for founding churches and attending church in this part of the world.
Not only in heaven, but the reward for serving God is also longer, as there are many rewards attached to being a pastor, especially if you are a very popular one or oversee a large congregation.
Pastors receive monetary gifts and donations from members and sponsorship from external individuals and bodies, not only in Nigeria but throughout the world.
Let’s take a peek at this year’s richest pastors in Nigeria, without further ado. It should be remembered that only an estimation constitutes their net worth.
Bishop David Oyedepo – $150 million – $200 million estimated net worth
Bishop David Oyedepo has a net worth valued at around $200 million. The church has thousands of branches in Nigeria, with branches in 45 African countries, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and many other countries. He is the founder of the renowned Living Faith Chapel, a.k.a. Winners Chapel.
‘Papa’ also owns the two best private universities in Nigeria, Covenant University in Otta, Ogun State, and Landmark University in Omu-Aran, Kwara State, as his followers affectionately call it. He is also the owner of the Dominion Publishing House that produces Church and Church books.
Bishop Oyedepo’s other investments and properties include real estate in Nigeria, the United States, the United Kingdom, and many other countries; four private jets, the Faith Academy, and the Kingdome Heritage Model School.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – $50 million – $70 million estimated net worth
This year, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome remains second on Nigeria’s list of wealthiest pastors. He is the founder and general supervisor of the Church of Christ Embassy. ‘Sowing seed’ is the central aspect of his preaching, which means members give part of their income to elevate the church’s work.
He is also recognized as the author of the devotional books of the famous Rhapsody of Truth and other books. The pastor also owns three television stations that have millions of viewers around the world. From the sales of CDs, DVDs, tapes, and apps, the pastor also makes money.
Pastor E.A. Adeboye – $45 million – $60 million estimated net worth
The estimated net worth of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is about $45 million-$60 million. He is the General Supervisor of God’s Redeemed Christian Church, having taken over in 1981 from Pastor Akindayomi, the founder.
Since he took over the church’s leadership, the church has expanded immensely, with the church having over 15,000 branches in Nigeria and now having components in over 192 countries worldwide.
The church has a private university, Redeemers University, with a private jet owned by the pastor.
Prophet T.B. Joshua – $25 million – $35 million estimated net worth
The founder and general supervisor of the renowned Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and the owner of Emmanuel TV, Africa’s largest religious television network, is Prophet Temitope Babatunde Joshua. Prophet T.B Joshua has an approximate net worth of about $25-35 million.
The man of God has global and internet followers, each with millions of followers on his Facebook and Youtube channels. His popularity in Africa is so enormous that he is ranked among the 50 most powerful people in Africa.
Pastor T.B. Joshua’s riches can be attributed to sales by congregations and adherents of books, recordings, CDs, DVDs, and donations. He is also considered a philanthropist who willingly and generously gives back to society without knowing the religious affiliations of people.
