Via TOP 10 AFRICA
Learn more about Africa’s wealthiest pastors. If we were to name one thing that Africa is blessed with, it would be powerful, affluent pastors. In short, when it comes to determining the most popular pastors in the world, Africa is the leading continent. This leaves us in a state of awe and befuddling our minds with a plethora of questions. Could it be that, as with the Israelites in the past, God has decided to favor Africa these days? Could it be, even better, that Africa is a wonderful holy land fertile in the creation of God’s servants?
Here is the list of richest pastors with their estimated net Worth
1.Pastor Alph Lukau – Net Worth $1,000,000,000
Who could better maintain the first position in our list of richest pastors in Africa apart from Pastor Alph Lukau? With a net worth of $1 Billion, we do not see any other pastor to put before him.

2. Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Net Worth $150,000,000
For the second spot on our list of Africa’s wealthiest pastors, we couldn’t think of anyone better than prophet Shepherd Bushiri. Perhaps we overstated in our remarks because Bishop Oyedepo is valued at $150 million as well. Bishop Oyedepo, on the other hand, has been preaching for nearly a century. That is why we are unable to present him before Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, a younger preacher who has managed to gain access to such personalities. Anyone who knows numbers will agree with me that this is a substantial quantity of money. Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, often known as Major 1, is a Malawian prophet from Lilongwe.
