What is your ministry?
I began my work life as a missionary who lives by faith through the generous support of family, friends, and partners. Fundraising and development, though a vital part of our ministry engagements, became a critical challenge that needed to be addressed. Therefore, in 2016, as a family we registered a business called "Know Travels & Services" to provide travel services, which included air ticket booking, online reservations and bookings for accommodation and travel, and assisting with travel documents. We also provide broadcast services to air programs, consulting, and other general services to our clients. We have successfully featured a nationwide Good Friday television broadcast on three stations in Nigeria. We are currently working towards airing this year's Good Friday broadcast on three TV stations and working on adding more as the Lord favors us. In addition, we provide humanitarian services for displaced person's due to the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria. We consult and advocate for micro-enterprises for women to enable them to provide for their families.
When did you trust Christ?
I decided to invite Jesus Christ into my life as Savior and Lord in 1996 at a Fellowship of Christian Students interschool rally held at my high school. Being born again was a landmark event in my life in which I saw God's love as the only antidote for my life's helpless and hopeless state because of my sins.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
My mother has made a lasting impact in my life; she devoted the evening moments to teach us from the Bible and taught us how to memorize scripture. The new life I found in Christ brought joy and grace into my life to walk with Him and serve Him. The convert class I joined made a lasting impact in my life as I learned the spiritual disciplines of personal prayer and fasting, Bible study, and worship. In my life's journey, I have met leaders who have impacted my life and some of whom are still making an impact on my life.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I desire to receive godly wisdom to do business with kingdom ideals; business development skills; best practices in business planning, process, and execution; help integrating my faith and work in business; and successful habits to inculcate in doing business in every sphere.
What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?
I am the country coordinator of the Lausanne Movement's Younger Leaders Generation (YLGen) Nigeria. I coordinate the affairs of YLGen in Nigeria and represent Nigeria in the Lausanne YLGen. We organize and host programs that will help youth to strategically connect with mentors and serve the kingdom in their respectively spheres of influence.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I want to develop business skills. I want to learn to prioritize. I want to become better at time management and at balancing family life and business.
