Following the fallouts from the Lighthouse Chapel and how a former member of the church is accusing the Founder, Dag Heward-Mills of wrongdoings, a gentleman has also shared his bitter experience.
According to this gentleman identified as Larry, he will not advise anyone to worship with the Lighthouse Chapel because they are very exploitative and bent on the growth of the church at the expense of the members.
Sharing his exp[erinece on Twitter, Larry said he had toiled and worked as a labourer to build the Lighthouse Church. He dedicated his time, his resources and even his home to the church but in the end, he realized he embarked on a hot goose chase…the pursuit of nothingness.
According to him, the church turns its members into labourers and cunningly and cleverly get them to do their bidding in the name of “building the church”. He added that he regrets ever joining the Lighthouse Chapel and wasting his time to build a church that has no sympathy for its members.
Concluding his experience, he said he is glad he is back to his senses and would never step afoot at Lighthouse Chapel or encourage anyone to do so.
This is not the first time distraught members or former members of the church have called out their Head Pastor and Founder. A few years ago, some pastors who left the Lighthouse Chapel came out to state that Dag Heward-Mills is very exploitative and coerced them into doing what they were not ready for.
They accused the pastor of exploring members and using them for his bidding without taking their welfare into proper consideration.

Lmaoo people are now hearing the exploitation going on in Lighthouse ??? These people legit had us acting as labourers, mixing cement and carrying blocks in the name of ‘building the church’. There was this one time, we had to improvise and create a lever using ropes & buckets – 1
My back hurt, my palms were full of blisters but hey – Work for the Lord. After ‘building’ that church from scratch, the pastor at that time, Reverend Adigbo was transferred to Togo, to start afresh! hey have this nice way or coercing you – 2
I loved a few blocks away from the church so these people used every least opportunity to ask us for stuff. From water barrels and plastic chairs they broke, to ‘availing’ our house as a ‘Buscell’ meeting center. You must admire their manipulative schemes. Top top. – 3
Members could legit barge into my room without warning because hey – Brother Abeeku, it’s time for church service. That nonsense stopped when I cussed one lady out and threatened to release the dog on them. Bruh that church will drain you of your entire finances – 4
From their 1st offering to Boosters, to Honor thy Prophet, to supporting Healing Jesus campaigns, all from members pockets. The last place I’d ever set foot in would be a lighthouse church, They would USE you, till you’re of little to no benefits, then push you back to the corner
