Why I Don’t Collect Offerings or Tithes – Pastor Kas Shobayo
Nigerian singer-turned-evangelist, Kas Shobayo, popularly known as Kas Beats, has revealed that he does not demand or collect tithes and offerings.
He stated this in an interview where he also noted that God is not present in some big churches in Nigeria.
The former Mo Hits signee opened up about his decision to switch from music to preaching the word of God.
Kas said there is a difference between one who is called to the ministry by God and those who just wake up and start a church.
He said that is the reason why God is not in some of the popular churches in the country. He said he has gone to a few but could not sense the presence of the Almighty.
According to the ‘Fimile’ crooner, he mostly organises crusades and seminars, where he does not take offerings, rather he provides food and other relief items to the congregants.
“I don’t care about critics; I rather focus on good energy. People will always talk. As a matter of fact, if people don’t talk about one, then one is a nobody. The thing about gospel ministry is that one has to be ‘called’ into it. One doesn’t just wake up one day and decide to become a pastor.
If one is truly called by God, there is a big difference. One can enter a church and be able to discern if God is there. I have been to some big churches in Nigeria and found that God isn’t there. They are just business centres. If one is not called by God, it is dangerous for one to go into ministry.”
Kas added; “Whenever I preach, I don’t collect tithes and offerings. When God called me, He did not tell me to take money from people. There is a way God provides me with money, so I do more crusades and seminars. Any time I organise crusades and seminars, I actually give people food and other items, instead of collecting money from them”
