T.B. Joshua’s wife becomes SCOAN’s new leader 


Evelyn, the wife of  Prophet T.B Joshua has been appointed as the new leader of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

Recall that her husband died on June 5, after conducting a service. He was aged 57.

It has been reported in the media that following her husband’s demise, SCOAN church elders met and appointed Evelyn as TB Joshua’s successor as there was no succession plan for the church.

“Someone must take charge immediately and lead as in giving spiritual direction on the mode of service continuity. So much spiritual and financial efforts went into building SCOAN and it cannot just waste away,” a top aide was quoted as saying

TB Joshua was a Nigerian pastor and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

The charismatic preacher and televangelist was showered with praises by his followers as a ” true man of God” and a philanthropist who fed the poor, gave electricity, educational scholarships, emergency relief, and employed young people in his football club.

He founded his ministry in the year 1987. It became a household name in most African countries due to the live broadcasts of his church services.

His live broadcasts were viewed by millions of his congregants on Emmanuel TV and other online platforms.

He had more than five million followers on social media, with more than 15, 000 people patronising his services weekly.

TB Joshua greatly transformed African pentecostalism into a transnational global movement with branches in Austria, Ghana, the UK, SA, Gabon, and Greece.

He also garnered for himself a great deal of criticism. His critics dismissed him as a ” fake prophet” and a proponent of the ” health and wealth” gospel which takes advantage of his followers trapped in poverty.

TB Joshua is set to be buried on July 9, on the premises of his church located in Lagos State. The Synagogue is going to host a week- long church service from July 5 to 11 so as to honour Prophet TB Joshua’ s life and legacy.
