There's been no power outage in my church since 1999 - Bishop Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo Bishop David Oyedepo

Founder and Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide also known as Winners' Chapel International, David Oyedepo has said his church has never experienced power outage since 1999.

According to Bishop Oyedepo, Canaanland which is Winners' Chapel headquarters in Ota, Ogun State, has over 23 years invested resources and capable personnel to manage it.

The world's wealthiest preacher per a Forbes report used this as a testimony to admonish Christians to depend on God.

“Light has never gone off in Canaanland since 1999. We have zero input from any government in Nigeria whether local, state or federal. Not that we collect offering every Sunday to achieve this. We invested resources and have good and very committed people that manage it.

“We teach the world that you can make your marks by depending on God.”

"They don’t use mouth to get power. You invest resources to sustain power. Have we ever raised an offering for power here? Never!

Canaanland houses over 50,000 worshippers, a feat captured in the Guinness Books of Records.
