Claude & Adelaide Madou
Date Started: December 1999
My name is Madou Claude Bada. My wife, Adelaide and I with my kids took over the church (The Door Christian Fellowship) in Ivory Coast since 2017 from our Pastor who was affected to France for a new mission. Since then, God has been faithful like He was to our spiritual Father. The ministry has been growing in God's pace as we do what we've been taught to do that is evangelism, preaching and discipling men for the harvest field. We've seen souls saved, disciples rising up to the task and very active in the different ministries of the church through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We've had several revivals with Pastors from Benin and Burkina Faso, and we had already hosted 2 victory rallies with Pastor Sunshine from Grand Bassam in 2017 and with Pastor Benjamin Mettle from Gabon 2018. We are a vibrant church with so many youths who are making sacrifices every day to live a decent life for Christ despite some of the difficulties they face. There is so much maturity and potential among the core which is hope for future leaders and a model for the converts God is locking in and we are very grateful for that.
One other important highlight which I am proud to give is that the churches here are totally indigenous and self supporting and we are very motivated to continue on this direction. We have 3 active baby churches and we are believing God to plant more churches in the future.
Thanks to Pastor Alvin Smith for the vision for Africa and the support from Into-Africa. Continue to remember us in your prayers especially for financial miracle as we take this land for Jesus.
God Bless you all!
