Prophet (Dr.) Samson Ayorinde is the founder and General Overseer of the N2 billion World Evangelism Bible Church, Ogudu, Lagos.
The lecturer turned clergy rakes in N10 million monthly from anointing service, N6 million monthly from offerings and special donations. His average tithe income is over N200 million.
The amiable clergy came to the front burner through his miracle service which started as a counselling unit in 1996. According to him, he received a divine direction and instruction to turn it into a service where miracles are wrought.
Thus, from a humble beginning of 100 worshippers, the congregation has grown into thousands who throng the national headquarters of World Evangelism Bible Church, Ogudu, Lagos, every Tuesday from 10am to 1pm. It attracts dignitaries from all walks of life, who support the ministry with donations. Like a seed sown, the partners raise over N1 million weekly to support the popular programme, and nets an average of N10 million monthly depending on the calibre of guests.
Due to the inability of the church to accommodate the teeming crowd, Prophet Samson started the popular anointing night which has expanded his coast. The programme started as a little indoor activity few years ago and has grown to a major event with a huge crowd.
The event holds at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos. The anointing night gulps over N15 million, while a chunk of the money goes into payment for the stadium, publicity both in print and electronic media and equipment.
Also, every November is another great moment for the ministry. This is the yearly anniversary of the church. It is a week-long celebration of how God revealed himself to Prophet Ayorinde during his first 40 days fasting and prayer in Kaduna from December 1992 to January 1993. That was when he reportedly got the revelation to start his ministry. That’s why November is set aside to celebrate this great commission. Representatives of the ministry from America and Asia attend this event.
This celebration gulps over N10 million and nets in over N15 million from donations.
Another ministry that has really influenced the popularity of Prophet Ayorinde is the anointing service for barren women. In Christendom, especially in Lagos, aside Pastor Gbenga Osho, Prophet Ayorinde, along with his wife, Rev. (Mrs.) Mercy specialize in this sector.
