Empower Africa

EMPOWER Africa

We are getting ready to Empower Africa with our first-ever Communicators for Christ conference in West Africa time!

We’re partnering with a school in Ghana and one in The Gambia to inspire and train as many orphans and impoverished students in their care as possible. But we need your help!

To help cover the costs to train these students, we’re hosting a Cultural Intelligence Training Fundraiser that allows YOU to grow alongside us as we learn to love these African students well. Here’s how it works:

  • Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Training will be held before the conference, preparing all participants to love and lead well in the context of West African culture
  • The CQ Training will be held October 12-13 (UTC 0)
  • The Communicators for Christ conference will be held October 14-15 (UTC 0)
  • The cost to attend the training and the conference is a $149 donation to Empower Africa – 100% of which will be used to sponsor registrations and curriculum for African students
  • $149 covers the cost of 10 registrations or curriculum for 2 classrooms!
  • We want to provide curricula for every classroom and sponsor as many student registrations as possible!

Meet the Leaders We are Empowering

National Leader in The Gambia

From the Fulani clan of West Africa, Pastor Abou Camara joins us at our Communicators for Christ Conference from The Gambia where he directs The Reformed National Church of The Sahel, a ministry that supports 225 female students. In a culture where girls are frequently given as brides at a young age rather than provided with an education, he and his family are using communication, leadership, and education for real influence! Pastor Camara received theological and divinity degrees from universities in both the Philippines and Nigeria. Sharing God’s love he has planted 36 churches and has worked to dig wells for communities with no clean water. Now, he’s using ICC’s Beginning Public Speaking to help female students achieve new, extraordinary opportunities in Africa

National Leader in Ghana

Pastor Patrick Baah deeply understands the suffering of orphans. In junior high school, Pastor Baah saw God use him to heal and deliver others. His passion to preach and win souls began. Leading others and planning missions to other villages continued throughout his high school years. At 25 years of age, Pastor Baah started the David E Gregory Christian Academy in May 2017. The school is solely free for the orphans and the less privileged students in the villages around his home. Pastor Baah’s vision is through the school to bring the gospel to young students and help them discover their unique calling and identity in God. He is serving as a ruling elder in his fifth church plant.  

National Leader in Senegal

Pastor Mama Diop is a Lead Pastor in Senegal. He founded the Africa Samakag Institute in 2019. The Institute’s mission is to give each young person access to knowledge of themselves as they are made in the image of God in order to release their energy and creative potential to undertake, innovate and transform their community and their environment.
