Popular Nigerian dancer, Kafayat Shafau-Ameh also known as Kaffy, has stated that sacking pastors to expand the church is like giving up on both the pastor and the mission.

WuzupNigeria reported that 40 pastors of the Living Faith Church Worldwide were sacked for being unfruitful and failing to grow.

Reacting to the controversies surrounding their exit from the church, Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, described the ex-pastors as "blatant failures" and "unfruitful".

Oyedepo's remark sparked mixed reactions on social media as soon as the video surfaced.

Weighing into the conversation, Kaffy on Thursday stated on her Instagram page that the decision to sack the pastors makes her question how the pastors were ordained in the first place.

"As much as I respect the expansion of church outreaches, I disagree with this approach of sacking pastors. Human behaviour isn't one you can put a timeline to how receptive or not they can be towards a lifestyle change," she wrote.

"To hear this makes me question how the pastors were ordained in the first place. Sacking them is like giving up on both the pastors themselves and mission. Even the pastors are not without weaknesses.

"Maybe they needed to revamp; training like human behavioural sciences, therapy courses, emotional intelligence courses. I think it should be more about the quality of life improved by the Christian doctrine than the number of souls.

"As we were taught that heaven rejoices over the winning of one soul like it's a million. I don't think you have won a soul just by someone walking in, declaring born again, and going back to sin.

"[I] might not even come back to the church or attend for the sake of 'I Dey go church'. If the branches are too much why not scale down and remodel."
