General Overseer of the Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome is allegedly experiencing some marital crisis.
Recall that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome relocated to Johannesburg in South Africa in January while his wife stayed back in the UK where she had lived for years – an action that did not go down well with his church members.
His church members who did not approve of them living apart, recently created a Facebook page asking for some explanations.
According to them, Pastor Chris, has never been spotted with his wife by his side – not during ministry conferences, not during conferences by other ministers and never during the monthly communion service transmitted live from a TV studio. They inquired further why other high ranking women in the ministry who are close to the Pastor travel with him always.
The Facebook page was created on May 10th and the page administrators said that their sole objective was not to cast doubts or spread false stories about Chris but to call on all believers who understand God’s heart concerning marriage and a Call to Action for Pastor Chris to do what he preaches.
Relatively, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome delivered a controversial speech on the 16th of May in a meeting with all UK Pastors and Deacons at Christ Embassy, Bermondsey.
In the speech, he addressed his church ministers thus “I am here for your concerns about the ongoing domestic issue with my wife and I know it affects you directly, being the ones under her leadership.
This is not an organisation or a political party, so it’s not a place for you to air your opinion or scrutinise what we do. We had a vision, started and you joined us. If you don’t like what we do, you can get out.
Churches where members air their views never grow.
Some Pastors wives think when they marry a pastor they are equal to the pastor. My wife thinks so, as a matter of fact, Rev. Tom was her pastor before I married her and Rev. Ray and Evang. Owase were her leaders long before I married her. How come she thinks she’s senior to them now?” He asked.
