The General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo faces criticism for appointing his second son, Isaac, as the National Youth Pastor.

“On the behalf of the Youths of Living Faith Church Worldwide, we say a big welcome to our National Youth Pastor, Pastor Isaac Oyedepo as he takes the Youth Alive Fellowship to the next levels of glory,” YAF posted.
