James Owolabi is an evangelist, church planter and christian educator who currently lives in Nigeria. He is passionate about training next generation leaders. James was born and raised in Africa and spent the first twenty years of his adult life in full time ministry in the United States. He served in youth ministry for over two decades in North America before relocating to Africa. Owolabi is on the teaching team of two multi-site churches in the Chicago and Minneapolis area. James is a second-generation ordained Baptist Minister who is passionate about buidling leaders, planting healthy local churches and establishing Christ-centered academic institutions in Nigeria and across Africa. He is married to Helen Olabisi Owolabi and together they love serving Christ in Nigeria.
In this episode, the Nigerian pastor shares insights into the needs of the youth he has pastored, while also speaking to the strengths of each community he has served in.
James shares the importance of living out the gospel, building relationships, and the family unit, as well as, the effects of poverty and fatherlessness on our youth throughout the world.
As you listen to the pastors knowledge and love for each community, keep in mind, I didn’t give pastor one prompt.
He speaks about; honor, race, faith, discernment, the media, laziness, and much more.
