Destined for Greatness

preparation precedes promise
  • By Boniface Burton Shonga
Product Description
In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 1, verse 17, the Lord Jesus made a profound statement, "Come, follow me and I will make you to become fishers of men." He was speaking to rough Galilean fishermen who He intended to raise to become the very first pillars of the Christian faith. The bottom line is that these men had to be prepared before they could become leaders of the early church. Christ makes it clear that He was going to "make" these men, like a master sculptor who brings the best out of something that had no form. In this book we look at the preparation that makes a person fit for the task. Boniface was ordained to serve full time as Pastor at Kabwe Chapel in January 1991. After years of an illustrious career in education and industry he resigned to answer the call to serve the Lord full time. His immense gifting in teaching, preaching and motivational speaking inspired many at Kabwe Chapel and beyond which resulted in the growth of the congregation from a couple of hundreds to well over a thousand at the time he was being consecrated bishop, in December 2006, to oversee not just the local assembly but the whole family of churches planted under Rock of Hope Assemblies. He has been a frequent speaker at many church meetings and conferences in Zambia and abroad, including in South Africa, Congo, Malawi, Tanzania, England and USA, to mention prominent ones. He has recorded messages which were broadcast on several television and radio stations which have been blessing many. He also has a huge crowd of "disciples" on a popular social network. He has authored a book, "When Kings Dream" which has encouraged many readers. In a declared Christian nation that Zambia is, with many evangelical churches and anointed ministers, BB is considered a voice to the nation and a role model to many believers and non-believers alike. As a service to the community, he has chaired different boards of management both statutory and parachurch. He is married to Ethel who is also a gifted teacher of the word of God. They have four adult daughters.
