Joseph’s Church and sophisticated street ministry
Joseph Akeyele is a Nigerian living in Norway for a number of years and before this in Berlin. He and his wife, Esther have launched Tonsberg International Church (TIK) and have experienced significant growth in the last year ministering to people of twenty-two different nations. Joseph wanted to take me around and show me his building that the city gives him for free. I couldn’t believe what has fallen into his hands. The theatre seating can manage about two hundred-fifty people and presently about 140 attend. You can see the worship on You Tube and in particular some of their effective street ministry. Joseph does a first class job of generating vision and then following this up with what appears to be engaging leadership. I wish I could be there on Sunday when I am not preaching. Next time, for sure!
