Africa Kingdom Business Forum (AKBF) Kenya Chapter

Africa Kingdom Business Forum (AKBF) Kenya Chapter operates under the auspices of   Kenya House of Prayer.

Our Mission

To transform the African Marketplace through critical mass of practicing kingdom entrepreneurs

Our Vision

To be a center of transformative biblically based Entrepreneurship Training in Africa.

Background

One of the greatest challenges facing the African church in the 21st Century is how to become relevant in solving the many challenging problems that abound in our nations. A large section of the Church in Africa, like most of her counterparts in other continents of the world, still considers the global market place a secular environment and therefore not a place to be actively involved in. As a result, there is an acute shortage of believers who can apply biblical dynamics to the professions especially in the business sector. This has contributed to the weakness and apparent irrelevance of the church in the face of the overwhelming problems in the society.

In considering what role the Body of Christ should play under such a situation, there must be a change in the erroneous views she has embraced for centuries regarding the marketplace. This training program which, is designed to bring a strong and renewed emphasis on the believers’ responsibility in the marketplace and most especially in the world of business, comes against this backdrop.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

 The program aims:

  • To serve as an in-service training and equipping school for Christian business persons and professionals to become true representatives of the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ in the marketplace.
  • To transform the participants’ mindsets pertaining to business and to enable the exploration of biblical ways of doing business as ordained by God.
  • To raise in business an Issachar company that understands the times and seasons and knows what God expects the Church to do in this day (1 Chronicles 12:32).
  • To reorient, retrain and equip businesspersons in the ministry of intercession and spiritual warfare for business.
