Obi Onwuzurumba of Nigeria, our Affinity Sphere Director for English-speaking Africa, had a passion for reaching government leaders with the Gospel long before he met Capitol Ministries.
Obi, a former chemistry tutor turned clergyman, and his wife, Martha, a former pharmacist, have ministered together for many years to take the Word of God to their nation’s leaders. The couple served as Special Assistants to Nigeria’s immediate past president from 2007 to 2015, and Obi also served as the President’s chaplain in the state house where many Christian Public Servants worshiped.
Currently, Obi and Martha are individually ministering to former and current Legislators and politicians and holding Bible studies when possible. The couple also ministers to Civil Servant fellowship groups, which are numerous. Often, Obi adapts and uses Ralph’s Bible studies, which he describes as “rich and comprehensive.”
“We have chosen to be part of Capitol Ministries having seen the need to more effectively reach our politicians and top civil servants with the life transforming Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through Bible studies,” Obi said. “We believe that they will be better leaders if they respond positively and our country will be better for it.
“Thank you for the opportunity to share our dreams and aspirations in our service for our Lord Jesus Christ.”
