The Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) worldwide, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has announced his decision to step aside and take leave of absence.
The pastor revealed his decision is as a result of spiritual counsel from Christian leaders and spiritual mentors.
“The past few days have been very sobering for me. I have taken time to pray and seek spiritual counsel from Christian leaders around the world who feel very concerned about the ongoing reports in the media. I have solicited their guidance on actions I should take that are honouring to our Lord Jesus Christ and the work He has called me to do.”
“Drawing from their counsel and that of the leadership of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly and owing to my love for God’s word and the sacred honour of my called, I have decided to take a leave of absence from the pulpit of the church,” Pastor Fatoyinbo wrote in a post.
