OUR JOURNEY SO FAR
THOUGHTS FROM REV. DR. MENSA OTABIL
In all we do we are Christians first, and if we remember this, we will
cause ripples, waves and then tsunamis of change in the world we live in.
Daniel’s life in Babylon depicts this well. His faith characterized
his entire life. It was impossible to separate his faith from his
life. Even his enemies said they would never find any basis for
charges against Daniel unless it had something to do with the
law of his God. Daniel’s excellent life and leadership made
pagan Kings like Nebuchadnezzar and Darius declare their
reverence for Daniel’s God. It is my desire that the young people
of this program will live lives that glorify God always. Their faith
should be their life. Their lives should be characterized by
integrity – who they say they are is seen in the way they live
even when no one seems to be looking. When resolute people of
integrity rise into leadership there will be hope for this country
and continent. I hope that the first fellows of the Central
Leadership Program will rise to the occasion and take hold of
the 7 pillars of society (family, culture, education, science,
media, business and government) and fortify them for the
prosperity of our nation.
WHAT SOME FELLOWS HAVE TO SAY

The visit to the Okyehene’s palace was
groundbreaking for me as I met a king in this
modern day who is Christ-centered, a man of
faith and who understands leadership and is a
change agent. I am most grateful to God and
the leadership of the Central Leadership
Program for making this possible.
