According to the ad post by Joy News, members of ICGC who could not make it to church on sundays could still pay their offering through an online bill payment platform, ExpressPay.

In other words, people do not need to be in the church to give offering to the Lord and can do so simply by sending their offering through the ExpressPay app to the church’s bank account. ExpressPay is available on the Web, Android and iOS.

Since the post went viral, many have criticized the leadership of the church, headed by Pastor Mensa Otabil of running the church like a business organisation whose motive is to make money rather than win souls for Christ.

There are some who are also of the view that there is nothing wrong with the new payment method introduced by ICGC as we live in a digital age and such practices are bound to become the norm sooner or later.

This is not the first time ICGC has been in the news for offering and money related scandals as exactly a year ago in July 2017, they were condemned by the public for making a price list for special prayer requests. Read Mensa Otabil’s response to critics.
