Where it all Began
For a long time, the Body of Christ in Africa has suffered the pain of poverty. While poverty comes from different reasons, the major cause of poverty in the church is the lack of investment into Kingdom businesses, talents and innovations by many Christians. It is unfortunate that the place of life in abundance has turned out to be a place of lack.
This is because traditionally, especially in Africa, the church focused on the spiritual aspect of Christianity, shying away from the physical well-being of a Christian from the time they are born again to the day they will die. The belief that once born again one will go to heaven has made the church have an escapist mindset and everything they do has been directly linked to waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ. This caused the following issues:
i. Doing business in the church has been seen as an ungodly activity and those who ventured in it were seen as not fully born again.
ii. Due to few Christians doing business, the principles, and values of doing business the kingdom way are not well established paving way for ungodly ways of doing business.
iii. Young people venturing into the business world are forced into the ungodly systems of doing business as they have no mentors to guide them and identify with in the marketplace.
This explains why many fall out of God’s way in pursuit of financial stability and freedom. Take an example of the Gospel Singers; it has become easier for them to go the secular way as they find little or no financial support from the church. The key problem is that the business aspect of monetizing talents and gifts the kingdom way has not been harnessed in the church.
This case represents many more scenarios in the Body of Christ today that are a result of lack of kingdom business-minded men and women who can invest in business ideas, talents, & innovations, etc.
It’s Transition Time
Are you an investor, entrepreneur, business owner or have a desire to do business the Kingdom way? and Are you tired of the poverty in the Body of Christ? Do you feel touched to bring a change by contributing to the Kingdom’s way of doing business? Now than ever before the church needs you to arise and join the MJAN Business Forum and join hands together with key business leaders and Influencers to give solutions to the three key problems and bring back an abundant life.
Come join us as we bring to realization the full potential of the church and break the norm of just meeting for prayers and services and later going out to look for what the world has to offer. It is time the church gives to the world and not just receives from the world. It is the season for Christians to live holistic quality lives on earth, and not just languish in poverty and lack as we wait to go to heaven.
At the end of the forum, we believe that we shall be able to:
· To launch a Christian Business Movement
· To establish constant kingdom training business programs
· Create a network and partnerships with Leading Christian Businesses across the globe.
· Establish kingdom business mentorship programs.
The conference will feature, presentation from Keynote speakers, panel discussions, question and answer sessions, interaction and networking sessions. In addition, there will be opportunity identification segments during which we believe that meaningful relationships and partnerships are going to be created.
Key Topics of Discussion
· Doing business, the Kingdom way
· Bridging the gap between the church and the market place
· Balancing the spiritual and the physical (Financial) aspects of life.
· Kingdom Values and Principles for doing business
We shall provide transport, accommodation and food in Rwanda during the conference period. You are therefore requested to cater for your return travel tickets and any other expense that you may incur during your travel.

Our passion to see unity in the Body of Christ, especially here in Africa, gave birth to this revival meeting. After our last conference with the Pastors and church leaders in Zambia, we realized that the worship leaders had been left behind. As a result, it was difficult for the two parties (Pastors and Worship) to flow together and host the presence of God.
In this revival, our goal is to train, equip and impact the Pastors and worship leaders with the Kingdom culture in a manner that they will work together to host God’s presence. This will then make worship services moments of encounter and intimacy with rather than entertainment, performance, and just another religious activity.
Be part of this great mission either by joining us or giving financial support. By joining us, praying with us, or supporting us we have no doubt that this mission will be a great success.
The Morning Joy for All Nations Kingdom Culture Conference that was held from 14th July to 17th in Nairobi Kenya was a great success.
The main purpose of the conference was to impact the Pastors and Church leaders, who showed up in large numbers and from different regions of Kenya, with the Kingdom culture. This was achieved through teachings, prayer, and prophetic words.
With more than 300 people from Kenya in attendance, there was a great move of the Holy Spirit and the manifest presence of God.
The conference brought together Pastors and church leaders from many parts of Kenya. Zambia, Burundi, and Rwanda were also represented. They all sat and actively listened for long hours to the message of the Kingdom.
During the conference we saw blind eyes open, deaf ears hear and people delivered. Plus many more miracles, signs, and wonders.
We are so excited to see what God has done in Kenya. It has been in our heart to see the move of God in Africa and the people shifting from the religious mindset to embrace the culture of the Kingdom.
Moving forward our heart and goal is to continue spreading this move to all the Nations of Africa.
