VIEWING THE REVENUE OF THE CHURCH IN LINE WITH PRESENT REALITY

Selome Kuponu (PhD)

Abstract


The church in Nigeria has been seriously affected by economic downturn that hit the world as a result of the recent lockdown. A lot of denominations were not able to fulfill their financial obligations to their clergy. In some not-too-viable churches, pastors had their salaries slashed and church paid workers like securities, cleaners, etc went for months either been put on unpaid leave or given a fraction of their previous salary.  Based on the survey carried out by the researcher, since the resumption of normal church activities the tithe and offering have suffered significant dip. This qualitative study uses survey method to highlight how individual churches could reposition themselves in such a way that they would not over depend on tithes and offering to pay their workers or fund infrastructural development.
