Statement by Pastor Jerry Eze

“Pastoring is weird. I've poured my heart and soul into people who now act like I don't exsist. I've done hours of counseling and deliverance with people who later deleted me. I've publicly honored people who chose to slander me and act like I was a villain. And then there's people I rarely have conversations with that honor and respect me to the highest degree. Some leaders have washed my feet while others have thrown dirt on my name.

“Being a pastor is weird, you're being monitored for faults and failures”- Pastor Jerry Eze alleges

He made mention the criticism they receive when they set boundaries to maintain their mental health and family life, which is often perceived as selfish.

Despite these difficulties, Pastor Eze revealed that the role of a pastor is ultimately fulfilling and life-changing, particularly when viewed as a service to God.

Pastoring is weird. I'm too much for some, yet too little for others. The same preaching that convicts one person angers another. The same sermon that was boring to one was massively impactful to another. Praised for being so loving and graceful, yet slandered for being too loving and graceful in certain situations.”
