Dr. Ouakoubo Nassa, is Pastor of International Christian Church in Yopougon, Cote d’Ivoire. Pastor Nassa received salvation in 1985, was baptized in 1986, and immediately knew God’s call was on his life to plant churches and train pastors. He entered Bible School in 1987, and was certified 4 years later with a diploma equivalent to a Master’s Degree in Theology. He began teaching the French language and New Testament Overview at the Baptist Biblical Institute in Abidjan in 1987, and continued teaching there until 2005. In 2006, he became an instructor at the School of Disciples Bible School where he still teaches many Bible classes, Eschatology, the great Doctrines, and Church Planting Mission.
Pastor Nassa planted his first church while a student and teacher at the Bible School in 1987. This church, through missionary policy, has given birth to 10 other churches. Today, several churches work under Pastor Nassa’s supervision and coordination as he has continued to plant more churches in partnership with Torn Veil Mission.
Pastor Nassa’s commitment to the vision of “Planting churches that plant churches and training pastors” does not stop with him. He was appointed as the Chief of Social Services by the National Council of Evangelical Protestant Churches of Cote d’Ivoire which includes over 5,000 pastors. They hold quarterly conferences to mobilize these pastors for church planting, and theological and ministerial training. As if that is not enough, Pastor Nassa also provides leadership to an orphanage with over 40 children.
The things God is doing in Cote d’Ivoire are amazing, and the anointing on Pastor Nassa’s life in Africa can have the same impact as he speaks and imparts his gift onto pastors, leaders, and Christians in America!
