Its a shame to bring less than Ghc50 as offertory – Prophet Kumchacha


Prophet Nicholas Osei, also known as Kumchacha, the founder and head of Heaven’s Gate Ministries, has joined with fellow evangelist Bishop Obinim in his rejection of 5 and 10 cedi notes as offertory.

In a widely shared video, Bishop Obinim gave his flock instructions to give seed or gratitude gifts during church services that weighed no less than 20 cedis.

Smaller donations, he claimed, are insulting to God, and he pleaded with individuals who had donated 5 or 10 cedis to get their money back so it wouldn’t become a curse.

Prophet Kumchacha confirmed Obinim’s observations in an interview that aired on Hitz FM on May 13, 2024. He mentioned the growing expenses of products and services, such as transportation to church, which frequently surpasses the 5 to 10 cedis that are customarily donated during services.

“What Bishop Obinim said is true. Prices of goods and services have increased. Even the transportation to church is more than 5 to 10 cedis. Yet during the offertory, you pay 2 cedis, 5, and 10 cedis?,” said Kumchacha.

When asked what he considered an appropriate amount, he replied, “GH¢50 and above is okay.”

While praising those he believed were at ease and who continued to make meagre donations, he also admitted that there were some who really had nothing more to give and declared that this was not a problem.

Such quantities were shameful, in his opinion.

“It’s not by force. If you really don’t have money, that is okay. There is no problem with that.

“But you can’t go to church, sit in an air-conditioned auditorium with your iPhone 15 and iPhone 17 and when it’s time for offertory, you drop 5 cedis? That is a disgrace! You should better sit at home,” he said.
