Meet the Author

Sunday Adelaja is founder and senior pastor of The Embassy of the Blessed Kingdom of God for All Nations in Kiev, Ukraine. The phenomenon of his ministry is that he originates from Nigeria, Africa, and has been able to prove that cross-cultural ministry is possible in the 21st century. He pastors the largest church in Europe with over 25,000 members who are 90 percent white Europeans. The church grew from 7 people in 1994 to 20,000 in 2002 and has now planted more than 300 churches in 15 countries.

    Finally... A challenge to the CHURCH!

    There are only a handful of reformers on Earth today and Sunday Adelaja stands out in this unique group: not because he pastors the largest evangelical Church in Europe, planted over 600 Churches in 35 countries or that being Nigerian leads a congregation that is over 98% caucasian. The phenomenon that envelopes Pastor Sunday is his passion for the advancement of the Kingdom of God which triggered the transformation of an entire nation. The principles that have infused the Kingdom of God into every sphere of societal influence and brought a nation like Ukraine to its knees before God is not only relevant to the world today, but desperately needed in America. CHURCHSHIFT reveals the heart of God for the Earth and provides practical principles on how to change the culture and affect the nation. The true purpose of the Church is unveiled in this book and indeed the heart cry of Christ when He died on the cross for us. Every Christian 'not just Pastors now' should buy, read, study, re-study, and implement the precepts preserved in the pages of CHURCHSHIFT!!!
