Popular Pastors Whose Spiritual Fathers Are Not Known

Posted by on August 8, 2021 — Drop A Comment

The importance of spiritual fathers in Christianity cannot be over-emphasized, as much of the spiritual growth and development of a Christian depends on it. Therefore, the same way a child receives guidance, instructions, and covering from his earthly father, so it is with the Christian life, where one receives these same things from one’s spiritual father after one gets born again.

However, people have been found at some point asking this question: ‘Must I have a spiritual father to do well in my Christian life?’ The answer to that question is YES, because God has not called anyone in isolation, and one must go through a process of discipleship before one amounts to maturity in the faith.

Notwithstanding, those in the ministry are the ones who have a deeper understanding of the concept of spiritual fatherhood because ministry is in stages and one would need direction from older ministers who have walked that path before.

There are a few ministers of God in the Nigerian church who have been in ministry for a while. However, not much is known about who their spiritual fathers are, even though they are considered to be the spiritual fathers of many other younger ministers. This article aims at revealing 3 popular pastors are not known. They are:

1. T.B. Joshua

Temitope Balogun Joshua is the founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN). According to the conversation, Joshua founded SCOAN in 1987 at the age of 24 years. Although, Joshua met with an untimely death on June 5, 2021, making it 34 years as the founder of SCOAN. However, not much is known about Joshua’s spiritual father, even though he was in ministry for a long time.
