The Winner’s Chapel and The King’s College

MinistryWatch’s Warren Cole Smith’s comments on one or more stories in the week’s news.

Prosperity Gospel on Steroids.  I started hearing about David Oyedepo a few years ago, as I was doing research for a trip to Liberia to cover the Ebola crisis. He founded a church in Nigeria in 1981 that has come to be called The Winner’s Chapel.  It is now in about 150 countries and claims 6 million members. At least 30 U.S. cities now have Winner’s Chapel churches.

When I heard that two of David Oyedepo’s sons are now here in the United States leading churches here, and when I learned that one of those U.S. churches was in my hometown of Charlotte, N.C., I thought it was finally time to take a closer look.  Kim Roberts wrote an excellent profile for MinistryWatch here….

We and others have written extensively about King’s in recent months, so I won’t rehearse the story here. View article →
