Pastor Raymond Koffi, Ministry Leader in Cameroun, Africa spread the message of Capitol Ministries and its global Gospel-sharing mission at an international forum that attracted government leaders from across Africa.
At the African Biblical Leadership Initiative (ABLI) Forum held in Yaoundé, Cameroun, Pastor Koffi and his assistant, Pastor Guy Bayong, greeted leaders at the Capitol Ministries booth and introduced them to CM’s mission to establish sustainable, on-going ministries to political leaders in federal capitols around the world.
“The Forum gave us the opportunity to reach a number of leaders in African nations who otherwise would not know about Capitol Ministries and its life-changing mission of sharing the Gospel with political leaders,” Pastor Koffi said.
“Where there are struggles, poverty, misery, and a thirst for freedom and dignity, the Gospel has a hope and a purpose to fulfill through Christ’s gift of salvation.”
The Forum focused on the problems of corruption and promoted fostering and encouraging the biblical values of integrity, righteousness, and principled leadership in government.
“Speakers and delegates alike gave impassioned pleas for Christian leaders to rise up across Africa,” according to the ABLI website.
A contingent from Ethiopia, including Aster Menwegelet who represented President Mulatu Teshome, met with Pastor Koffi and Pastor Bayong at the Capitol Ministries booth, and expressed interest in establishing a Bible study to national leaders in their country.
Plans are underway for Pastor Koffi to travel to Ethiopia to visit with leaders to discuss establishing a CM ministry.
Political and religious leaders also traveled from Ghana, Nigeria, Gabon, Togo, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, Burkina, and many other African nations as well as England and the United States to attend the Forum.
As a result of relationships forged at the Forum, several other leaders contacted Pastor Koffi after the event to discuss establishing ministries in their countries. Follow-up trips are being planned.
Pastor Koffi is also well-known and much beloved as the co-host of the very popular Christian Broadcasting Network’s (CBN) “Le Club 700” television show, the French equivalent of “The 700 Club” program which is hosted in the U.S. by Pat Robertson.
ABLI was established in 2009 to empower and inspire leaders. It was formed through a partnership between a coalition of Bible societies and Christian ministries working with the Africa Area Office of United Bible Societies (UBS).
The ABLI Forum provides opportunities for networking and exchanging ideas on a wide range of issues pertinent to African cultures. The goal is for members to encourage and mentor each other and share cases of the successful application of God’s Word.
