The church accommodates 15 000 worshippers on Sundays.

Topping the Forbes list is Bishop David Oyedepo with an estimated net worth of $150 million (about R1.6 billion).

Oyedepo owns four private jets, a publishing company, a university and a high school.

According to the United States entertainment conduit MonteOz, Joshua is the tenth richest pastor in the world.
