A pastor in Lagos state has caught the eyes of Nigerians after announcing the suspension of offering collection in his church.

In a trending video, the pastor could be seen telling his church members that henceforth, offerings will no longer be collected because of the situation of the country.

He stated that in these times when people spend more money to buy petrol and pay more for transportation, it would be unfair to collect offerings from them.

He said until the petrol price is reduced, his church will not collect money from its congregation.

He added that stopping offering did not mean pastors would go hungry, adding that they would survive if God truly called them.

“Don’t collect offerings today, for now, because of the situation in this country. For now, we are pending the offering,” he said.

“All pastors should notice that pending the situation of this country, we should stop the collection of offerings. The reason is that a church member can come to church spending N1000 as a fare, and still give an offering and may trek back home.

The pastor who spoke to the cheering and applause of his church members also urged the clergymen across the country to do the same.

“Am I making sense? Not giving an offering doesn’t mean the pastor would starve if truly he was called. But for now, till the fuel pump price falls, in our church…we are not collecting offerings.
