The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has announced the retirement of 20 senior pastors who have attained the retirement age of 70.
The church announced their retirement at the conclusion of this year’s Ministers Conference.
Six of the pastors reportedly received awards for Excellence, while 14 others bagged award for Fruitfulness.
They also got a plaque and some undisclosed amount of money for their meritorious service.
Similarly, the church gave Long Service award to some of its pastors who have put in 20 years and more years to the work of God.
During the church’s convention, 9,170 deacons and deaconesses are expected to be ordained by the RCCG General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
Meanwhile, Adeboye has advised his pastors not to break their fast with solid food.
He told them that pap is best for breaking fast, noting that, it takes a while for the body to begin to absorb solid food.
