It is no longer news that some pastors live a wealthy lifestyle and this has been a debate among many, especially when some of their church members can not afford three square meals.
Popular Kenyan pastor and founder of the Jubilee Christian Church in Nairobi, Bishop Allan Kiunna, has publicly defended his lavish lifestyle when queried.
Aside from the headquarters, Bishop Kiunna reportedly owns about 15 branches in Kenya and five international branches.
In recent times, the man of God has been on a traveling spree with his beautiful wife, Reverend Kathy Kiunna, three children Jeremy, Stephanie and Vanessa as well as his two grandchildren. It was also reported that the pastor and his wife love to step out in style as they are found rocking designer outfits and they drive in Range Rover and Mercedes Benz.
Speaking on his flamboyant lifestyle, Bishop Kiunna disclosed to The Star during his family vacation that he has never been bothered about what people say about him adding that Jesus Christ never lived a poor life.
Bishop Kiunna said: “As long as I remain true to my God and my calling, what people say is not important. I won’t let another person’s opinion distract me from focusing on the grander vision God entrusted to me. No one throws stones at a mango-less tree. Sometimes ignoring and moving on is the best remedy. You don’t respond to a mosquito bite with a hammer. Only the word of God can demystify misconceptions. I state categorically Jesus was never poor. Tell me of any poor man who has an accountant. Judas Iscariot was the accountant and used to steal. When you steal from a poor man, what can he be left with? You know the answer.”
On being humble, the man of God disclosed that humility has nothing to do with poverty or riches because there are people who have money and are still arrogant. He added that it is just a state of the mind.
When asked why he needs a private jet, Bishop Kiunna said: “Yes and No. No because it is not yet at hand. Yes because they are speaking and declaring what I am believing God for and I am confident it shall come to pass. When God is ready to do something in your life, even your enemies announce it in advance. The church is expanding. My calendar and itinerary won’t allow me to meet the demands of missionary work. This calls for efficient travel and it’s too tedious to fly commercial from one continent to another.”
The pastor recently celebrated 23 years of marital bliss as Bishop Kiunna shared pictures of him and his wife on his Instagram handle with the caption: "It’s been 23 years of Glory!! Am so glad I married my best friend!!! Happy anniversary Shosh."
