The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has approved the retirement of six assistant general overseers and some workers in the church.
P.M.NEWS learnt that at the recently concluded annual convention of the church at the Redemption Camp, Kilometre 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, at least 25 members of the Elders Council and 40 midwives in the childrenâ€™s department also left the ministry.
It was gathered that the six deputies retired on account of age and not because of any rancour in the hierarchy of the RCCG.
Also during the convention, the church members were delighted to learn that RCCG has increased its provinces by 6,000.
The newly established 6,000 provinces were given a grant of N60 million for take off.
Pastor Adeboyeâ€™s office as the general overseer will monitor directly the newly created provinces of the church which are located mostly in USA, Asia, Europe and parts of Africa.
