What is your ministry?

The Forum has played a vital role in my last 15 years of ministry. I can’t imagine what I would do as a pastoral leader without the resources and partnerships I have gained through the Forum.

When did you trust Christ?

I grew up in a Christian home, and I decided to follow the Lord at the age of 10 at a youth camp. My decision has been challenged many times; by the grace of the Lord, I daily give my life to Him to be used His kingdom.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

After my baptism in early youth, another important time was when I felt the call to the ministry and applied to study theology. Those years at the seminary were a blessing to me. Two U.S. missionaries I worked with as a student influenced my life by believing and investing in me – their encouragement, time, mentoring, and prayers were of great importance. My wife is another blessing and encouragement for my life and ministry. My trips to the U.S. were a gift from God. I always met the right people to help me to move to the next step.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

Several years ago, I went through a period where I heard about leadership from every side. I was afraid to listen to all of it, thinking that I would not be able to be the one to take up the call to leadership. But I knew deep down that God wanted me to be a leader. Since then, I have already gained some knowledge and insights into leadership, but I know I must learn more to fulfill what God has called me to. Attending the Forum has helped me fulfill this call because of the people, training, and resources available for me to use and learn from. Through these things, with hard work and perseverance, I believe I can achieve what I am called to do.
