The Rise to Fame of Apollo Quiboloy
Apollo Quiboloy is one of the most famous Filipino church leaders.
He is the founder and Executive Pastor of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, The Name Above Every Name, which began preaching in the slums of Villamor, Agdao, and Davao City with only 15 members.
He has received critical responses to his claims of being the “Appointed Son of God.”
His followers refer to their community as a “Kingdom Nation,” claiming that their church has about 2 million “Kingdom citizens” abroad and 4 million in the Philippines.
Quiboloy founded José María College, a school named after his parents, in 2000.
Quiboloy stated that he had “divine powers” at his disposal, including the ability to control nature. He is convinced that it is because of these divine powers that Typhoon Kammuri (Tisoy) did not wreak havoc on Davao City.
In response to those critical of his earlier claims about his divine powers in preventing earthquakes from hitting Cotabato, Quiboloy clarified that he used the same powers to keep parts of the city safe, but only those inside his prayer grounds. Once those within his prayer grounds were “safe,” he did nothing for the rest of the city.
His ministry had a global television channel, the Sonshine Media Network International (President and CEO), and 17 radio stations in the Philippines.
Around the world, his newspaper was circulated weekly to followers in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
In June 2014, he founded Sonshine Sports Management, which organized boxers and basketball players in Davao City.
