Some of the Born-Again Churches in Uganda have many times been accused of such acts and for that reason they have found themselves in the limelight.
It is evident that most of these Churches headed by prominent Pastors have been accused of manipulating Ugandans who are naïve and hungry for deliverance.
These are accused of collecting huge amounts of money from them in form of Tithes and all around that.
State Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries who doubles as the member of Parliament for Serere, Hellen Adoa has come out to advise the Born-Again churches in Teso region to set up Projects that bring in money to the churches and stop pressuring the people for money during time for worship.
She also noted that Church cannot entirely depend on the believers only especially at this time when the economy is poor, feminine and drought in some parts of the country.
She urged Churches set up other income generating projects to get money from.
This came after some followers of certain Born Again Churches in Teso region became uncomfortable by the high level of demand from their Pastors, one of the believers, Okello David (not real name) said the Churches are asking for too much from them.
” In a single service, we give money almost 10 times for various reasons ranging from paying for the pastor’s rent, buying a car for the pastor, building projects to even paying fees for the pastor’s children when ours are at home and hungry.”. said Adoa.
Some of the born again churches found in the Eastern district of Soroti include: Gospel assembly church, Soroti Pentecostal Church, Calvary Christian Church, Baptist church, Independent Baptist church, Open Bible Pentecostal Assembly of God.
