Evelyn Joshua, the late Nigerian preacher and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), is slated to take the helm of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
The leaders of the church have named Everlyn as the successor of Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua.
“Right away, someone needs to take command and provide spiritual instruction on how to keep the service going. “SCOAN was formed with a great deal of spiritual and financial labor, and it can’t just go,” a top aide said.
When Evelyn went to visit her sister in Egbe in 1990, she met the late pastor for the first time.
They had been married for 31 years and had three children.
According to accounts, she had also sought counseling and spiritual guidance from him.
TB Joshua proposed to her on the same day they met after a 45-minute meeting.
Evelyn would later marry the self-proclaimed prophet and become the second in command of the Synagogue’s Church of All Nations.
Local Nigerian media estimates TB Joshua’s net worth at $10 million, making him one of the continent’s wealthiest preachers.
In addition to preaching, Evelyn offers counseling to church members.
The couple had been married for 31 years and had three children when he died on June 5, 2021.
The pastor will be laid to rest in his church in Ikotun, Lagos, according to family sources.
Following intervention from the pastor’s family and church elders, it was decided that the pastor would be buried in Lagos.
The preaching and practice of TB Joshua were similar to those of other Nigerian churches, where the sick were cured and obstacles were addressed, among other things.
Although Prophet T.B. Joshua had a significant following, he also had critics who dismissed him as a charlatan and con artist.
Some questioned his miracle abilities,’ which allowed him to attract large crowds whenever he staged a significant event.
Congregants would collapse as a result of his touch, which he described as driving devils out of the sick.
His work has been characterized as a “sham” and even a “fake” preacher by non-believers.
