October 23, 2018

September 29, 2018, Nairobi -- AEA hosted a  quite unique and innovative Transformational Leadership Seminar attracting 66 participants drawn from 19 countries across the globe in Nairobi, Kenya from the 24th -26th of September, 2018.
 
This year, AEA partnered with Ford Taylor and the Transformational Leadership team to engage, equip and train leaders serving the National Evangelical Fellowships/Alliances in Africa. Ford Taylor is known for taking a relactional Leadership approach to training aimed at leading through influence rather than control  and has a wide focus that spans across the how, who, what, when, where, and why of effective leadership.

Participants shared glowing testimonials of the training,  owing to the teaching and learning techniques employed in the training.The General Secretary of the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe (EFZ), Blessing Makwara, shared a report of his time in Nairobi with key take-ways of the seminar.

The General Secretary from Eswatini  (SCC) (formerly Swaziland) , Pastor Themba Ngozo said of the training,“What a life transforming week we have had. God is good indeed. Thank you Rev. Aiah for allowing God to use you to bring the best out of us. Some of us are new into these high serving positions. Thanks again for helping us realise that we are to become RELACTIONAL leaders.”

Dr. Henri YE from Burkina Faso, said of the training, “This training went beyond our expectations “  with  Rev. Cooper from Liberia best capturing a recurring theme from leaders who attended the seminar, “Many of us came to the Transformational Leadership  Training with the  notion that this was one of those regular leadership trainings. But this one will go down in the history of our various alliances owing to the impact thereafter. Many thanks to the AEA for this resourceful training.”

The AEA General Secretary, Rev. Dr. Aiah Foday-Khabenje, was encouraged by the outcomes of the seminar and  said it heralded the start of Africa's evangelical leaders journey together for AEA's good and most importantly  for God's glory.
