The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said that he would have had 12 biological children.
Adeboye has four children of his own – three son Dare, Lere and Adeolu; and a daughter, Bolu. Dare died on 4 May 2021 at age 42.
The respected Pastor’s statement came while announcing that 67 babies – 41 of them boys – were delivered as at Saturday morning during the week-long 70th Annual Convention of the church held at the Redemption City along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Adeboye, however, said that what he could not have himself biologically, he had through thousands of his church members whom he tagged his “spiritual children”.
The programme, with the theme, “Perfect Jubilee”, which started on Monday, will end this Sunday.
The GO, as he is fondly called, said that RCCG is “a mission where God multiplies and very soon, there will be nothing called barrenness in our midst”.
When he asked church members who had their babies in the last one year to come out, a large number of parents danced forward with their babies to the altar areas both in the new and old auditoriums of the church.
He added that God asked him to name what he wanted for this year’s convention of the church and he asked for babies. He said God promised him 110,000 babies for waiting couples.
While speaking on the influx of worshippers at this year’s convention, Adeboye said the church would build more dormitories before next year to accommodate the overflow.
