Dear Beloved,

I greet you in the mighty name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I am Dr. Francis Bola Akin-John and by the grace of God, the founder and president of International Church Growth Ministries, a work I began in 1994. International Church Growth Ministry birthed the International Institute for Church Growth in 1996, whose purpose is to train and empower pastors and Church workers to be more effective in ministry and also to help nurture churches to health and full maturity and now recently, also began Growth Bible College (an arm of International Centre for Church Renewal) dedicated to providing sound theological education.

When God began to speak to me about this ministry many years ago, there was really nothing like it in Nigeria at the time.
We had our first seminar in December 1994 (24 years ago) and we were greatly encouraged by the turn out of participants as 23 pastors showed up. According to polls taken from the seminar attendees, they were not only blessed by the depth of knowledge of Church and ministry issues by the facilitator, they were richly blessed by the quality of the seminar materials and resources.

Today, I am humbled to say God has inspired me to write and publish over 50 books and resources on church growth, the Christian life, effective ministry and many more, with several thousands attending our various seminars and many more benefitting from our materials and resources around the world.


  • Why should you, as a child of God access these good quality materials and resources?
    *             Good and quality resources empower you to fulfill the great commission - Matt. 28:19.
    *             People are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13
    *             Paul recommended in 2 Timothy 2:1-2 that we teach others the things we have learnt of God.
    *             The book of Proverbs expressly states that it is not good for the soul to be without knowledge. Proverbs 19:2.
    *             Training through study is needed for us to be able to rightly apply knowledge (wisdom). Proverbs 22:6.
  • The What and How of Good Books and Training To Ministry and our Christian Walk Today
    *             Training is the process of preparing somebody for a job, responsibility and this leads to skilled behaviour.
    *             Training and study are fundamental to Kingdom building
    *             Training and study must be systematic
    *             Training and study must be progressive and should be updated regularly.
    *             Training and study must be practical and relevant 
    *             An untrained mind can be dangerous to the work.
