Gift Kabwe is the pastor of RhemaFaith Church.
When did you trust Christ?
I became a follower of Jesus when I was a teenager after I repented of my sins. My life has been through many twists and turn since my birth, but one thing I have experienced is that no matter what, the Lord has always been there for me. I trust Him through my life experiences and follow him with strong faith and love. He never leaves me no matter how bad I am.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
Having a Christian mentor and friends who are counselors helped me to grow stronger in faith.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
The European Leadership Forum would be an amazing chance for me to learn new leadership skills which will help me reach out to the unreachable in more efficient ways. Moreover, it would help my faith grow stronger. I would be able to learn new things and to network with other believers to create more opportunities.
What is your ministry?
My husband and I are Christ’s ambassadors. We work in the Pakistani community to uplift faith by evangelizing in the workplace and at common gatherings of friends. We run a company called Explore Pakistan and arrange trips and share our Christian faith with people. I have also launched a YouTube channel which helps the country’s Christian community learn Christian teaching from the Bible. My husband and I work with Christian youth to mentor and disciple them. I also work as a motivational speaker.
What are your past leadership roles?
I have worked with young women, training them to have leadership and management skills.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
Pakistan really need leaders who are bold. I have a desire to work within communities. Pakistan is a Muslim country. Christians here face a lot of persecution every day, both emotionally and physically. That is one reason our youth are far from church and professionals are busy in just earning money to support their families. I have a heart for creating opportunities for people and to telling them the good news of Jesus Christ. People have a lot of talents and ways of using them for Jesus, but there are few people who can guide them and hold their hand to take the first step. I want to be the hand that helps them to take the first step.
