Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has said that he and his family will stay away from church due to their age.

Adeboye stated this during a live broadcast on his Dove Television in which he backed the government protocol for church reopening.

“We want to thank the Almighty God that some of us will begin to gather again as from Sunday.

“I believe that some of you are already gathering in some parts of the world and we believe that you will now begin to enjoy the power of corporate prayers once again.

“But as you gather together in all those places where you are free to gather, please remember those of us who cannot gather with you yet.

“People like me and my wife cannot gather with you in Lagos because we are over 65 years of age and my grandchildren cannot gather with you yet because they are under 15 years of age.

“So, remember us in prayers, so that very soon, we will be able to join you,” he said.
