Temitope Joshua, better known as TB Joshua, founder of SCOAN, died on June 5, 2021— two months after battling a stroke.

His death occurred one week to his 58th birthday, and he had earlier announced he would opt to fast and pray instead of celebrating.

In a statement posted on its Facebook platform, TB Joshua Ministries, on Saturday, the church announced Evelyn as its new leader.

“It is now God’s appointed time, to the glory of God, for the SCOAN to soldier on with the divine assignment under the guidance of God and the human leadership of Mrs Evelyn Joshua. We urge you all to join us in prayers as we wish her God’s guidance and divine wisdom in her new God-ordained role,” the statement reads.

Addressing the church in a video posted on the church’s Facebook platform on Monday, Evelyn said she is not assuming the role of a “general overseer” of SCOAN, but as a “servant”.

“I am not your general overseer; my dear husband and our dear father, the prophet for generations, senior prophet T.B. Joshua, remains the founder and general overseer of the SCOAN,” she said

“Like my beloved husband used to say, ‘Let love lead’. Today, I represent the symbol of that love, even as he continues to reside by the right hand of his maker. I am only a servant who, under the leadership and direction of the Holy Spirit, will team up with you all to direct the affairs of this great ministry.

“The SCOAN cannot be without you — all the members, partners and friends of the ministry. So, this now serves as a clarion call for you all to rise as an army of God as we push this great commission forward.

“We will work together, pray together, fight the fight of faith together, win together so that we can all inherit the everlasting home together.

“I know that we have all missed the congregation of our brethren for the past one and a half years, but let me assure you that as God leads, we shall all soon converge again and worship God together as a family. So, watch out!

“There is no gainsaying the fact that I and the entire team, we need your prayers, support, encouragement and advice all at this time. The duty is much, the burden is heavy, but we will all cast them unto Jesus, who has already given a promise of his help.”
