James Okoli

On the surface James likes to consider himself as quite ordinary, he is a student and lives a pretty normal life. However he also recognises that God is interested in doing extraordinary things in ordinary people and that is one of his biggest reasons for serving with OGGM. James is the facilitator for our courses and has a heart to ground and build people up in their love and devotion to the truth of the Gospel. Writing thought-provoking and challenging articles is just one way James seeks to do this and his hope is that people would read his articles and be edified, encouraged and empowered to live and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
