He further revealed that he opened up the church as a source of income and not through anointing.

“I must admit I opened this church due to greed but not anointing. I saw how several pastors make money by having large crowds and making false prophecies to attract more,” he opened up.

According to the man of God turned gambler, his expectations of raking in millions from the Church were not met, something that forced him to seek alternatives.

“All along I had plans to close the Church, but I decided to take everything slowly since I wholly depended on the offerings for food,” he says.

“I started gambling about 4 years ago. I would place bets on several platforms using the money I got as offering and tithes in Church. Sometimes I would come up with a fake Church project to get some money for bets over the weekend.” he adds.

Pastor Tim is however now planning to use his fortunes to expand his ministry.

“I am a businessman. My passion all along was business. I am planning to start a big shop in a town far from here. I will also get a nice car. God has remembered me.” he says.
