I teach the students at Bethel Bible School, and work with local believers and church leaders.

I was born in an unbelieving family in the north of Côte d’Ivoire in 1969. I became a Christian in 1984. I was married in 1998 to Lydie and we have 3 children (Stephane, Michael and Prisca).

I have been the director of the Bethel Bible School (IBB) in Korhogo since 2001. As director, my main responsibilities lie in the guidance of the Bible school. My duties also involve the recruitment of new students and the encouragement of churches already supporting students in training. IBB is the only Bible school in the north of the country. In that region people are mostly Muslims or animists. Christians represent approximately five percent of the population. We are training pastors for 463 local churches that are members of the AEBECI (Evangelical Baptist church association).

-Pray for my ministry. I am very busy as a pastor in a local church and director of the Bible school.
– Pray for my spiritual life. I need to spend more time in the presence of the Lord and be a good example for the students and believers.
– Pray for my children. Lydie and I need wisdom in their education.
– Pray for God’s protection on me as I travel all over the country to visit churches.
– Pray also for the Bible school. We are still struggling with finances for professors’ salary.
