I'm known to some as Minister Madge Obaseki as I am an ordained minister. I am the founder of Grow The Church Now, a ministry established address retention issues which can prevent the Church from achieving its mission. Indeed, she is known as the Healthy Church Growth advocate. The ministry was founded around the precepts of Ephesians 4:12.
I am an award winning leader who has served in ministry for over 27 years. I'm in-demand as a church consultant, speaker and trainer on retention challenges in the Church at large.
I host the Healthy Church Growth Show podcast, available on Spotify Apple Podcasts and other platforms. The weekly show is for leaders in the church to address the challenges and solutions of running an assembly. All aspects of church life are covered in the show. My guests have included clergy, church leaders & experts in their various fields including a professional fundraiser, digital church pastor, community activist and more.
I hold a degree in Ministerial Theology which I embarked on as a mature student! I also hold a post graduate diploma in Management from Middlesex University. My early career was spent in HR and as a result I am CIPD qualified, as well as an accredited advanced trainer through the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). In addition, I have been a serial entrepreneur having run several successful companies including clothing design a catering company, and an entertainment agency! I am also a published author under Future Hope Legacy Publishing. There have been highs and lows throughout, but they've all equipped me for such a time as this!
My absolute favourite pastime is gardening where I draw inspiration for ministry. I reside in London, England with my dear pastor husband and family.
