Meet HaLCIA's five (5) Group Leads.
Youth Engagement Group Lead
Joshua became a Christian as a child during a Sunday school class and sensed his calling to full time ministry as a teenager. There, the Lord convicted his heart towards teaching the word of truth as a remedy for a perishing world from Hosea 4:6. The Lord has also gifted him with the gift of teaching and leadership. He started full time ministry with Evangelical Church Wining All (ECWA) in Nigeria serving in the youth camping ministry for six years and eventually became a local church pastor for about fifteen years. Joshua is serving with Harvest Leadership Community in Africa (HaLCIA) as the Youth Engagement Group Lead. He believes God provided this platform for him in HaLCiA to fulfill his calling of teaching the word especially to the young generation. His goal is to help young people develop a leadership philosophy that is rooted in the values of servant leadership modeled by Christ. His passion is to see them having a rich knowledge of God’s truth, faithfully and effectively fulfilling their life’s purpose. Joshua envisioned a generation of young people cultivating and expressing attitudes of godly character in their leadership disposition, transforming and developing their communities for the advancement of God’s Kingdom. This is a task that requires prayers and financial support. We are inviting you to prayerfully consider supporting this cause with your prayers and financial support as the Lord leads.
