The Institute teaches, mentors and nurtures a culture of biblical servant leadership aimed at rediscovering leadership as service and the development of leaders as a lifelong process.
Only the best is good enough for Africa.

The Mission of the Institute for Christian Impact (ICI) is to serve the Church in Africa through equipping young Christian professionals to bear witness to Christ in all spheres of life.
The vision of the Institute for Christian Impact (ICI) is to see the Church in Africa engaging biblically and effectively with the complex realities of the African context.
The Institute initiates and nurtures conversations (Consultative Dialogues, Christian Witness Seminars/Webinars, WhatsApp Dialogues) and Public lectures. It also nurtures a network and culture of accountability among participants - through local circles of accountability-for lasting impact. The Institute likewise nurtures an African perspective on issues of the Gospel, Mission and life in the Public Arena for the benefit of the global Church.
We do not underestimate the challenge of our quest for a Bright Africa. We acknowledged that there are also Christians who have embraced the mindset of ‘if you cannot beat them, join them’. Still, there must be a remnant who refuse to compromise their innermost core values of honesty, diligence, and self-hood under the Lordship of Christ. It is to such remnant we appeal, to join hands with us in nurturing a new generation of leaders who will bring their faith to bear on all spheres of professional calling ad life under the Lordship of Christ for the common good of our people!
