TB Joshua Ministries leads African churches with 5.6m Facebook followers

Although a far cry from the 500 million views on its YouTube before being removed, the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Africa’s leading religious tourist destination, continues to lead other African churches in online presence with 5.6 million subscribers on its Facebook page.

Despite the loss of the founding pastor of the church, the church under the leadership of Pastor Evelyn Joshua, Prophet T.B. Joshua’s wife, has gained stability and is currently re-asserting SCOAN Ikotun, Lagos as the leading religious tourist destination in Africa.

While the Ikotun-Lagos is gradually recovering religious tourism traffic with large number of worshippers trooping to the church, the reintroduction of the popular Prayer Line for the sick has helped to boost the community’s tourist receipt.

SCOAN is also showing its perfect grasp of religious worship in the post COVID 19 era with its huge online presence.
