Pastor Isaac Oyedepo, the second son of the General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has resigned from his father’s ministry.
The reported resignation was disclosed on Wednesday by Church Gist, a media platform owned by Pastor Leke Beecroft, one of the long-term pastoral assistants at the LFC Headquarters in Ota.
Isaac is said to be planning to commence a new church ministry.
It was reported that Pastor Isaac was confirmed in September as the national youth pastor of the Youth Alive Fellowship (YAF), the youth wing of the church.
His appointment was confirmed by YAF through its official Facebook page. It said the new youth pastor would take the youthful congregation to glorious heights.
‘On the behalf of the Youths of Living Faith Church Worldwide, we say a big welcome to our National Youth Pastor, Pastor Isaac Oyedepo, as he takes the Youth Alive Fellowship to the next levels of glory,’ YAF posted.
Isaac took over from his predecessor, Pastor David Nwabueze, who has been transferred to LFC Nasarawa State.
In a recent interview, Isaac said his purpose in life was to reclaim a generation and to ensure that this generation saw the fire of God’s revival in their generation.
The mandate of YAF which he was leading before his resignation, it was gathered, is to liberate the whole world from all oppression of the devil through the preaching of the Word of Faith.
Isaac was ordained as Living Faith Church pastor by American preacher, Kenneth Copeland, in May 2007.
He has pastored the Winners Chapel International, South Africa; Maryland, United States and Lokogoma, Abuja before he was redeployed to the headquarters, Canaanland Ota.
He is married to Ayomitide Omogbadegun and they are blessed with children.
