Prolonged Church Services Can Cause Marital Problems – Prophet Kumchacha Speaks

Founder and Leader of the Heaven’s Gate Ministries,Nicholas Osei who is popularly known as Prophet Kumchacha has advised pastors.

Prophet Kumchacha has strongly spoken against Church services lasting for long hours.

According to Kumchacha,preachers or pastors should learn to cut their messages short.

Speaking in a recent discussion on Okay FM,Prophet Kumchacha advised that church services should not be prolonged as it can cause marital problems.

Prophet Kumchacha said that as for him he doesn’t stress his members with long preachings at his church.

Prophet Kumchacha said,
“Church services which last for longer hours can cause problems. Sometimes it can cause marriages to break and foster quarrels between a husband and wife. Some services can start at 8:00 am and close at 5:00 pm. I feel that such long durations are not profitable for anyone”.

“Some women have to go and cook for their husbands. Others may need to go and take care of the children. And if we put Sunday services aside, the rest of the days in the week, some women may need to collect their children from school. So if your closing time is not favourable, it can bring about problems between herself and her husband.

“I feel that when it comes to sharing the Gospel, every pastor should preach for a maximum of an hour,” he added.
