Inoke Kubuabola, named Capitol Ministries’ Global South Pacific Director seven months ago, has already launched two new discipleship ministries in the South Pacific Islands.
In September 2017, Kubuabola established a weekly Bible study to Fiji Parliamentarians that is faithfully attended by seven Members and is growing. The studies are led by The Rev. Aporosa Rageci and The Rev. Isireli Kacimaiwai.
So enthusiastic are the Parliamentarians that they requested the Bible studies never be canceled, even if they are overburdened with business.
“It has been overwhelming the way God is quickening the ministry,” Kubuabola said. “We see the favor of God move amongst our Leaders and we believe this is the new season for our beloved nation of Fiji.”
A second ministry was planted earlier this month. Kubuabola met with Parliamentarian Dr. Allan Marat who has agreed to start Capitol Ministries to Members of the Papua New Guinea (PNG) Parliament.
Born in 1954 and the only Papua New Guinean (and only Pacific Islander) to graduate with a Doctor of Law from Oxford University, Dr. Marat entered Papua New Guinea Parliament in 2003. He has served in past governments as Attorney General, Deputy Prime Minister and Acting Governor General.
Dr. Marat was very excited to learn the Capitol Ministries’ mission to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to leaders in the political arena of the world and decided to begin a ministry in the PNG Parliament, Kubuabola said.
“We are grateful to God for raising up Inoke to this vital position,” said Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries. “Only a few months after being named South Pacific Director, he has made mind-numbing progress in furthering the Gospel of Jesus Christ among political leaders in his area of the world.”
Kubuabola is a proven leader who has held a number of high-ranking positions in the Fiji government. He was named CM’s Director, a self-supporting missionary position, in July 2017, and as such is tasked with planting discipleship Bible studies to the leaders of Fiji, the 16 surrounding independent island nations, as well as in the federal capitals of Australia and New Zealand.
To get the word out, he created a South Pacific Islands Capitol Ministries Facebook page and recruited a group of passionate volunteers to provide prayer and support.
Kubuabola also organized a luncheon where church leaders learned about Capitol Ministries’ mission and were invited to become partners in taking the Gospel to political leaders.
Working to plant additional discipleship ministries, Kubuabola is networking with fellow leaders in Vanuatu, Solomon, Tonga, Nauru, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Palau, and Niue and is establishing contacts in Australia and New Zealand.
