All around Africa, there is a growing urge for Christians to participate in politics as kingdom personalities in their respective countries. The big question is HOW can they participate?

“If you are not playing politics, politics is playing you”.

“If you are not interested in Politics, be assured that politics is interested in you”.

There is no neutrality in it.

“Politics is life and life is politics. To hate politics is to hate life. Ignorance of politics is one of the worst forms of ignorance that there is” – Joseph Ibekwe

Introduction

Politics is what determines the direction of a nation’s economic prosperity and social stability. In any democratic environment, apart from registered political parties, individuals and pressure groups are constantly engaged in political activities for different reasons. The engagement of these people is what helps to shape  the political culture of that society. 
One set of people that seem to be lackadaisical about political participation is the Christians. The reason is that many sincere Christian people don’t know to what extent politics affects their life. Many believe politics is dirty and therefore not meant for decent people. Many Christians actually believe it is not possible for one to be a ‘true christian’ and also be a decent politician.
These are strong perceptions that have deterred ordinary, but capable christian people from coming forward to participate in the political processes including contesting for political positions.

 

The truth is that if you don’t do Politics, politics will do you.

Testimonials from previous participants

“I’m impressed with the calibre of resource persons and their hands on experiences. They taught us what no text book can ever teach us”.  Dumebi Owa

 

“I learned how to become a public citizen, a prerequisite to becoming a good politician”. Ogunwale Bamidele

 

“My perception on Politics before this program was that, politics is a dirty game and must be left to those who know how best to play it. Now I have a better understanding that politics is God’s business, therefore good people are needed to get into politics to sanitize the environment as Representatives of God here on Earth”.
