Adesina Akanni –
“I came to know the Lord as my saviour in November 1997 in my final year at the then Ondo state university, now Ekiti State University. Since then I have grown in grace by the help of the one who saved my soul from the wrath of hell and reconciled me back to Himself.
“In the UK, there are different walls or partitions built by the Government legislation to reaching the lost for Christ. One of these is the notorious law that bars you as an employee from sharing your faith with a colleague at work place. These various legislation are further compounded by the British apathy to Christ and what He could offer. Indeed, Britain, where I sojourn, is filled with all kinds and manners of challenges built by the enemy to reaching people for Christ.
“Our desire in ministry is to positively transform every community and every life that would have contact with the power in the word of God.
“Therefore, we have adopted what we called the outreach, impacting, and releasing strategy to achieving our ministry objective.
“The outreach is to recruit potential soldiers of the cross, training them to be ministers of the cross and releasing them to plant more churches.”
“The scholarship from the Christian Leadership Institute would facilitate the knowledge required to fulfilling these goals in ministry.
“We need the prayer of the saints to be strong to fulfill this ministry that God has committed into our hands.
“We appreciate the grace of God bestow on you to accomplishing this task of impacting the saints through education. We pray that God who has begun this will empower you to the end in Jesus name.”
Adesina Akanni has a vision. Today, Britain is a country filled with apathy toward Christ and barriers to preaching to the lost, but Adesina Akanni envisions an army of soldiers of the cross breaking down those barriers. Adesina Akanni has a means to fulfill his goal, but he lacks the training, knowledge, and experience. A scholarship to CLI will provide Adesina Akanni with all of these so that he can further pursues his ministry calling.
