Apostle Ofori Atta

Senior Pastor of Freedom Chapel International Ministries, Apostle Francis Amoako Atta has hinted that most of these modern pastors were not called by God but rather were called by hunger.
The Apostle in an interview with Ohemaa Woyeje on Adom Fm’s “Black Wednesday Show” stated that lack of employment in the country is also the cause of these numerous pastors in the country.

“If there are a lot of work opportunities in the country, lots of these pastors will shun the pastoral work. There are only three jobs in Ghana. It’s either you’re a pastor, politician or you sell herbal medicine…” he said.
