Oden Makiwa –
“My name is Oden Makiwa. I am married with 2 children (12&15). We currently live in England, United Kingdom. We are originally from Zimbabwe. We have lived in England for 12 years.
“I grew up in church. I have been passionate about studying the Word of God all my life. Living in another country as a bi-vocational pastor and working hard to support family members back home gives me little opportunity to pursue my passion to study due to time and financial constraints.”
Oden Makiwa Receives a Scholarship
“I came across the Christian Leaders Institute online and immediately concluded that this was a prayer answered. Now I can pursue my studies part-time with easy Internet access. I am involved in my church as an associate pastor and one of my responsibilities is to do missionary work. I have been to Africa 4 times in the last 2 years training leaders. With a CLI scholarship I believe I will be well equipped to impart more advanced knowledge to a lot of other people who do not have the same access and opportunities like I now have with CLI.
“Pray for me that I will be able to fulfill the call of God over my life to plant more churches and share the mercies of God with many people.”
Oden Makiwa has a passion for Christ. He immigrated from Zimbabwe to England, where he pastors a church while working full time to support his family. Oden Makiwa isn’t content to live a stagnant life, though. He knows that he has more to learn, but he doesn’t have the finances or time to attend a seminary. Oden Makiwa sees Christian Leaders Institute as a doorway to a greater impact for Christ – in his community now, and others in time.
