Ghanaian pastor and Chaplain, His Excellency (H.E.) Reverend Atta Badu Snr, is set to serve as a Peace Ambassador of the United Nations following accreditation from the Word of Life Ministries International (WOLMI) and the Canadian International Chaplaincy Association (CICA).
Rev Badu Snr is a member of the 2020 cohort of ambassadors that are specially trained by WOLMI and CICA and accredited to serve as advocates for world peace, education and poverty reduction.
Commenting on the accomplishment, H.E. Reverend Badu thanked God for the successful completion of the training course and pledged to use his position to spread love and tolerance around the world through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
“I am thankful to God for his calling upon my life that has led me to complete this training so that I can serve more people and bring them His Word which brings peace and prosperity.
I am also grateful to the President of WOLMI and CICA International University. I believe in what Jesus said at Matthew 25:43 where he commissioned us to serve mankind because service to mankind is service to Christ himself. I am therefore looking forward to this role very much and it is my hope and prayer that many lives will be touched by God through my work,” Rev Badu Snr said.
With over twenty years in Christian Ministry, Rev Badu received the calling of the Lord after Secondary School in Ghana. Since then, he has risen humbly from an usher to a Reverend to an Ambassador. In 2008, he started a Zoe Christian Centre which has now grown into a church with over seventy congregants.
Rev Badu is deeply committed to learning and has completed many courses in theology and Christian Ministry. He has studied Urban Mission and Ministry at the St. Mellitus College. He has also recently completed a course in Humanitarian Diplomacy and Protocol and Diplomacy at the WOLMIC Diplomatic Academy.
Aside from his ministry, H.E. Rev Badu actively contributes to the Newham Community, where he resides in the UK. He currently serves as the voluntary chaplain at Newham General Hospital. He also christens babies, blesses marriages prays for the sick and needy, baptises new converts, and ministers at burials. Much recently, he has also been a strong advocate for racial equality and against unnecessary killings in the community.
WOLMI is the first and only full gospel church to be granted an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, (ECOSOC). This is the highest level of accreditation that is awarded internationally to all designates. In this capacity, WOLMI is able to appoint and accredit seventeen ambassadorial representatives annually to offices of the United Nations worldwide and numerous Ambassadors At-Large.
