Who is the richest pastor in South Africa? Christianity is a major religion in South Africa. 80% of South Africans are Christians, therefore we have so many pastors in South Africa.
Unlike the old Christianity where most pastors were not living a life of luxury, you have to agree with me that modern pastors are very much wealthy.
Some of them have side businesses aside from the ministries they run while some pastors’ source of income is very much unknown to the public.
Most of the pastors in this post were not very wealthy before they started their ministries but as we all know that God blesses those who help his word reach people. These pastors became very wealthy after they started their ministries for God.
