He has contributed three chapters to urban ministry training books in the United States and Canada and written hundreds of articles for newspapers and magazines.
In 2005, he set in motion an evangelistic project “Come and See”, which has become a strategic vision of the church to win and retain souls for the Kingdom of God , everyone involved is busy in the work of the Lord. He likes to share the word of God with other brethren and with his colleagues in ministry.
