Paris, France and Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 4, 2006
As a dual citizen of France and Gabon who was educated in the United States, Bishop Mike S. Jocktane (http://www.mikejocktane.com) is using his unique global perspective to unite French-speaking Christians around the world. Just as the Reverend Billy Graham is fondly referred to as “America’s pastor,” Bishop Jocktane’s message of redemption through Christ is fondly embraced by the Francophone world. And, just as Reverend Graham has long counseled U.S. Presidents, Bishop Jocktane is the personal emissary and special advisor to Gabonese President Omar Bongo Ondimba.
In 1996, Bishop Jocktane founded the Christ Revealed to the Nations Ministries. As the organization’s CEO, he consistently forms bridges between diverse religious denominations, cultures, and nations. Bishop Jocktane’s ministry encompasses social welfare programs such as the Nissi Mission, educational facilities such as the Elite Christian Academy and the Ministry Training Institute and evangelical events such as the Dunamis Crusades and Impact Francophone (http://www.impactfrancophone.com).
Saying, “Faith is the glue that binds humanity and culture,” Bishop Jocktane works in the faith-based business and political arenas to bring together people of all faiths. He has been integral in supporting a change in existing French law that separates church and state. Evangelical Christians and Muslims jointly encourage the proposed change, since it would ease existing hostilities, make way for both to build houses of worship and grow their congregations.
About Bishop Mike Jocktane
Born in Paris to Gabonese parents, Bishop Jocktane began his ministry at the age of 14, when he joined other young people in Gabon to spread the word of Jesus Christ during a time of tremendous social, political, and cultural change. After graduating from secondary school in Paris, Bishop Jocktane began his ministerial training at the Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, and graduated from Oral Roberts University (http://www.oru.edu) in 1996. Married to his wife Nadia for over ten years, Bishop Jocktane has two children, Jacky Yael and Grace Christie.
In 2006, Bishop Jocktane will launch The Mike Jocktane Compassion and Evangelistic Association, a US not-for-profit organization. This division of his international ministry will focus on developing relationships with leaders, other people of influence and donors in the western hemisphere, primarily the United States. “There are more than five hundred million French speaking people who desperately need the relevant message of Jesus Christ,” says Jocktane. “I intend to deliver it -- in word and action.”
