Following the leadership crisis rocking the Synagogue of All nations, the church has been closed down for since the death of the demise of TB Joshua, the founder and general overseer.
This was disclosed by
Mrs Evelyn Temitope Balogun Joshua, the alleged new leader of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN in a press statement made available to newsmen.
She stated that the church will reopen for service when the leadership gets approval from God, adding that this clarification was necessary owing to the call for service by members.
Mrs Evelyn TB, explained that the leadership of the church must first hear from the Lord and be guided by the revelations from the Holy Spirit to commence church service.
According to her: “We are getting ready and even yearning to start services but we cannot go outside the will of God whose directive is what we shall continue to uphold, live and work on,” she stated.
The widow said she is still mourning her husband, however, assured the public that the church will emerge stronger.
The new alleged leader narrated that since her husband’s demise, the church was yet to start services, like other churches.
She said: “We have no fear whatsoever but don’t forget a good Christian must also be a good citizen. We have continued to pray for God’s mercy for our nation and the world. Besides, I am still mourning the passing of my husband.
“The mourning period is over, and most importantly, when the Lord intimates us to begin, we shall move swiftly in God’s grace. Be assured that God’s mercy endures and by His grace, SCOAN shall come out stronger,” the new leader said.
Also speaking on plans to reopen for church service, Mr. James Akhigbe, in SCOAN legal department, added very soon the church will commence service.
“We don’t conduct the affairs of SCOAN to please people but we embark on the project because we have heard from God. We are very hopeful that God will give us the green light.
“Meanwhile, we cannot say tomorrow because you cannot dictate to the Holy Spirit,” Mr. Akhigbe said.
Congress gathered that a Federal High Court in Lagos appointed her as chairperson of the board of trustees in the church.
