I come from a Muslim background, with my father being the first in his family to become a Christian. He was led to Christ by American missionaries in Kono District, Sierra Leone. I felt called into ordained ministry in 1990 and served as a UMC Itinerant Pastor from 1991 to 2003. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry Degree in Multnomah University’s Global Evangelism track. While have I have been honored to have received Multnomah University’s Brian Blenkinsop Award, given to a student for exemplifying a selfless and Christ-centered life, what I long to hear is God saying, “Well done thou good and faithful servant” when my work on earth ends. I believe that the African continent is, right now, the most fertile ground for the spread of Christianity. To minimize the damaging impact of false doctrines, it is imperative that African evangelists and church leaders get proper training. The Global Evangelism Track at Multnomah University gives me the right skills-set so that in turn, I can ‘equip’ countless evangelists, church leaders, and new converts throughout Africa.
