Pastors, without a doubt, are God-fearing men who act as a bridge between the natural and supernatural worlds. Pastors are no longer as poor as church rats; instead, they’ve found a way to become powerful and wealthy while still serving as intermediaries between God and man. Let’s take a look at Nigeria’s top ten richest pastors.
As of my knowledge cutoff date in September 2021, the following list represents the top 10 richest pastors in Nigeria based on their estimated net worth:
- Bishop David Oyedepo – Net worth estimated at $150 million
- Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – Net worth estimated at $50 million to $70 million
- Pastor Enoch Adeboye – Net worth estimated at $40 million to $60 million
- Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo – Net worth estimated at $30 million to $40 million
- Prophet T.B. Joshua (Late) – Net worth estimated at $25 million to $30 million

- Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi – Net worth estimated at $10 million to $15 million
- Pastor Sam Adeyemi – Net worth estimated at $10 million to $15 million
It’s important to note that the estimated net worth of these pastors may vary and is subject to change over time. Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that wealth and net worth can be subjective and can change depending on various factors such as investments, assets, and liabilities.
God indeed is a rich God, and this is seen in the life of these ministers, from the cars they use, private jets and lifestyle. Even though we take no pleasure in rating Pastors, we believe our readers need to have the knowledge of some of the rich men of God in Nigeria.
