Joshua did complete one year in secondary school, dropping out and started working at a poultry farm.

While in school, Joshua was known and called ‘small pastor’ due to his love and knowledge of the Bible and also his ability to predict the future, according to SCOAN.

He led the ‘Scripture Union’ during his time in school.

In 1987, Joshua founded Synagogue Church of All Nations.

The church began with few members and later grew into a large crowd and was popular even outside Nigeria.

The cleric was popular across Africa and Latin America.

T.B Joshua, in 2009, kicked off a football academy known as ‘My People FC’ as part of his efforts to help the youth.

Joshua was rated as the third-richest pastor in Nigeria with an estimated net worth of $10 million – $15 million in 2011 by Forbes.

However, some controversies went on about T.B Joshua.

The cleric was heavily criticised due to the large number of miracles that happened in his Church during services.

Recall that in 2017, popular televangelist, Chris Okotie, accused Joshua of “shamanist practices,” But he did not, however, provide evidence to back up his claims.

Joshua was always seen by fellow Pentecostal pastors and Christians as being unorthodox and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) denied the Synagogue Church membership.

In April 2021, YouTube suspended the Emmanuel TV channel from its platform, accusing the cleric of hate speech after T.B Joshua was seen in a video casting out a ‘gay spirit’ from his congregants.
