Alpha Hour has become a go-to virtual prayer room for most shaky Christians, and Pastor Agyemang Elvis is cashing out big time.
With approximately 50,000 people joining in his online prayer session every week, it is minimally estimated that he makes over GH¢100,000 every week.
The simple yet thoughtful analogy is that if each participant pays an offering of GH¢2 throughout the entire week, with an audience of over 50,000, Pastor Elvis Agyemang is making GH¢100,000 (in the least).
It is estimated that Pastor Elvis Agyemang probably makes more than that, judging from the number of people who attend the online prayer session, the payment platforms he has, and the attraction the sessions get.
Many people believe that his prayers are more powerful and efficacious than the regular cassock-wearing ‘men of God.” How did they callously determine that?
With the number he is getting coupled with the supposed monetization of his pages, it is estimated that Pastor Elvis Agyemang of Alpha Hour makes GH¢100,000 per week at the expense of his audience.
That is a smart way the pastor has found to make money virtually and get traction on social media. With the advent of social media and its tools, Pastor Elvis Agyemang has gradually moved away from pastoring over his Grace of Mountain Ministry to becoming an online demigod.
Pastor Elvis Agyemang is not only revered, but he has also assisted his audience in receiving miracles and sharing unverifiable testimonies about the effectiveness of his prayers. He has heightened the feeling of religious fanaticism amongst members and participants.
That is filling his pocket and fuelling him to come online on the regular with thousands leaving behind whatever they are doing and joining in to receive guidance and spiritual direction from their “Messiah”.
He needs to be commended for fostering religiosity in a very polarised secular world. He deserves the bucks. Laughing out loud!!!
To burst your bubble, over 70 per cent of his online audience are women. These are impressionable people who are emotionally and psychologically predisposed and thus have been morphed into spiritual dummies for the “work of God.”
