“Any politician who cannot remember the poor is not going back to parliament,” said the founder who can also be referred as the father of Redeemed Gospel Ministry and Churches that are spread across the world. In the Redeemed Gospel Church located in Worcester, U.S the Bishop joined Kenyans abroad as they celebrated Father’s day and as a father received a gift. “If you are able to give even $1 to the poor in Kenya give! It doesn’t matter how much land, cars or money one has when one passes away no one leaves with anything!” urged the man who began preaching in 1963 and will this December be celebrating 50 years of preaching.

The Bishop whose ministry has about 2,000 churches and one of the churches in Huruma where his wife Reverend Josephine Gitonga ministers has a congregation of 25,000 members preached that he was concerned that many pulpits in Kenya today were no longer about preaching. The pulpit has become a place of entertainment and sales,” the Bishop preached and narrated how many preachers are selling oil, stones to kill Goliath, handkerchiefs that are meant to keep one holy for any year. He preached that he has called some of these preachers to ask where in the bible this is written. 

The Bishop in preaching on the values of marriage and keeping the body holy said, “Adultery has become like food. Some are committing this three times a day or three times a week. He preached of the need to keep the body holy so as to live longer. He preached that prostitutes are not just those in the streets. “If you are here and commit adultery you are a prostitute,” he stated. The Bishop concluded the message by telling the congregation, “Don’t shorten your life. Whatever you do, look onto God.”
