Chris Okotie Stephanie Henshaw
After the breakup of his marriage to Stephanie Henshaw in 2012, Household of God pastor, Rev. Chris Okotie has announced through his church’s Director of Media & Communication Strategy, Ladi Ayodeji, that he has no intention of getting married in the future.

Read the official statement below;

The pastor of our great church, the Household of God, Oregun, Lagos, Rev. Chris Okotie has finally laid to rest speculations about his future marriage which have been the subject of media controversy since his separation from his former wife, Stephanie Henshaw last year.
He announced to the church during the evening service on Wednesday, January 09, 2013, his decision not to remarry which he said is final and irrevocable, having already settled the matter with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Taking cognisance of the wide media interest that this issue is likely to generate, we decided to make this statement to pre-empt mischief makers from distorting the facts.
The pastor assures his well wishers, friends and numerous supporters around the world that he is completely at peace with himself and his God in arriving at this historic decision.

Ladi Ayodeji.
Director, Media & Communication Strategy

Chris Okotie Marriage NO

We are not sure what warranted this deceleration but there you have it!

Pastor Chris Okotie has been married twice in the past. His first marriage to Tina Okotie ended in divorce after 15 years. Tina moved out of Nigeria and made it clear that she had no intention of returning to Nigeria.

His second marriage to Stephanie Henshaw in 2008 created a media sensation (See Wedding Post). The mother of 3 had been previously married twice (sadly her first husband passed away while her second marriage ended in divorce). Unfortunately things came to a grinding halt in June 2012 when the Pastor announced to his congregation that the marriage was over with no chance of reconciliation.

Wishing all related parties the very best.

      The will of God should be done on pastor’s life. Thanks. I like him and his church…. Woman have problems everywhere.

      Yes, anyone can decide to get married or not, However when you are a Pastor you have to live in a righteous manner,continuously setting the right examples for your congregation.

      The guy said he heard from his god that he will be president (2twice), also his god told him to marry his ex-wife now. Bia biko, what is the name of your god ? Useless lust filled man

        Thank u very much. The kind of things that religion has blinded us to in this country are appalling to say d least. People following one man sheepishly who reads the same religious book as them, in the same language, in the name of the same God they both worship is something I have still not understood in Nigeria. You false Men of God, stop decieving people in the name of God! And u sheepish followers…be wise!! Haba!

      My pastor, may God strengthen you in all you are going through. The church in the U.S. is praying for you.

    • washington abikele February 14, 2013 at 1:02 PM

      Everyone should leave the man of God alone.before you judge people you must understand their pain.

    • KING May 5, 2013 at 3:52 PM

      SUCH ARE THE MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE. HOW WILL GOD JUDGE? COME DOWN TO THE EARTH TO DO WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO? WHEN THE COLONISERS CAME TO AFRICA AND THEY WERE TAKING OUR GOODS AWAY AND ENSLAVING THE PEOPLE, THOSE WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO REACT WERE BUSY PRAYING THAT ALMIGHTY GOD DEALT WITH THEM. DID ANYTHING HAPPEN? TODAY THEY ARE LIVING BETTER AND THE DESCENDANTS OF THOSE WHO DID NOT ACT ARE GOING TO THEIR COUNTRIES TO DO MENIAL JOBS TO EARN A LIVING. I BELIEVE IN GOD BUT KNOW THAT GOD WILL NOT COME TO DO FOR PEOPLE WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO THEMSELVES!
