Shalom Evangelical is non profit, non denominational charity organisation established in 2010 with the main aims of winning souls for Christ, uplifting the broken hearted and providing welfare support to the needy and vulnerable.
Shalom Evangelical Ministries proclaims the good news through the distribution of bibles and tracts to individuals and churches alike. We also focus on individuals and lost souls by taking advantage of social media platforms like facebook and twitter where we post daily messages on the word of God.
We pride ourselves in the distribution of food items, essential commodities and food vouchers to the following institutions: homeless peoples' homes, prisons, orphan children homes, respites/hospice, battered women/domestic abuse and asylum seekers. We are a totally commited vessel to this cause as many of these under privilegded people do not know there is an ultimate help in the person of Jesus Christ.
Since inception, we have engaged in many projects that are fulfilling our aim of coming into being in various manners. The projects include:
With a good team of workers, volunteers and board of trustees, we have been able to make some significant strides in this endeavour, however, we realise and are conscious of the fact that for more to be done, we need a collective cooperation and partnership of our fellow christians and the general public through their donations and support. Every penny is an increase in every fashion.
A very well selected board of trustees have been elected to over see the huge task involved in reaching the vision and the mission and they include:
Evangelist Samuel Oduekun (President)
Sister Mary Oduekun (Director)
Emmanuel Oduekun (Manager)
Bishop Joel Thomas (Trustee)
Mrs Nancy Bourne (Trustee)
Pastor Vincent Bamgbowu (Trustee)
Mrs. Favour Ogbuagu (Trustee)
Our vision is clear! We know Christ and we know He is rich so we evangelise to the poor and needy while providing welfare to them. This creates a Christ awareness in their hearts and the ultimate truth of the richness in Him. We end poverty and help the under-priviledged become Christ conscious.
