Zacharias Tanee Fomum
Christian Missionary Fellowship International
Professor Zacharias Tanee Fomum was born in the flesh on 20th June 1945 and became born again on 13th June 1956. On 1st October 1966, He consecrated his life to the Lord Jesus and to His service, and was filled with the Holy Spirit on 24th October 1970. He was taken to be with the Lord on 14th March, 2009.
Fomum was admitted to a first class in the Bachelor of Science degree, graduating as a prize winning student from Fourah Bay College in the University of Sierra Leone in October 1969. At the age of 28, he was awarded a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry by the University of Makerere, Kampala in Uganda. In October 2005, he was awarded a Doctor of Science (D.Sc) by the University of Durham, Great Britain. This higher doctorate was in recognition of his distinct contributions to scientific knowledge through research. As a Professor of Organic Chemistry in the University of Yaounde 1, Cameroon, Fomum supervised or co-supervised more than 100 Master's Degree and Doctoral Degree theses and co-authored over 160 scientific articles in leading international journals. He considered Jesus Christ the Lord of Science ("For by Him all things were created..."
- Colossians 1:16), and scientific research an act of obedience to God's command to "subdue the earth" (Genesis 1:28). He therefore made the Lord Jesus the Director of his research laboratory while he took the place of deputy director, and attributed his outstanding success as a scientist to Jesus' revelational leadership.
In more than 40 years of Christian ministry, Pr Fomum travelled extensively, preaching the Gospel, planting churches and training spiritual leaders. He made more than:
* 700 missionary journeys within Cameroon, which ranged from one day to three weeks in duration.
* 500 missionary journeys to 70 different nations in all the continents. These ranged from two days to six weeks in duration.
Pr Fomum was the founding team-leader of Christian Missionary Fellowship International (CMFI); an evangelism, soul-winning, disciple making, Churchplanting and missionary-sending movement with missionaries and churches in 65 nations spread across Africa, Europe, the Americas, Asia and Oceania. In the course of their ministry, Pr Fomum and his team witnessed more than 10,000 recorded healing miracles performed by God in answer to prayer in the name of Jesus Christ. These miracles include instant healings of headaches, cancers, HIV/AIDS, blindness, deafness, dumbness, paralysis, madness and new teeth and organs received.
Pr Fomum read more than 1350 books on the Christian faith and authored over 150 books to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 5 million copies of these books are in circulation in 12 languages as well as 16 million gospel tracts in 17 languages.
Pr Fomum was a man who sought God. He spent between 15 minutes and six hours daily alone with God in what he called Daily Dynamic Encounters with God (DDEWG). During these DDEWG he read God's Word, meditated on it, listened to God's voice, heard God speak to him, recorded what God was saying to him and prayed it through. He thus had over 18,000 DDEWG. He also had over 60 periods of withdrawing to seek God alone for periods that ranged from 3 to 21 days (which he termed Retreats for Spiritual Progress). The time he spent seeking God slowly transformed him into a man who hungered and thirsted for God. He aspired to become a man who hungers, thirsts and gasps after God.
Pr Fomum was a man of prayer and a leading teacher on prayer in many churches and conferences around the world. He considered prayer to be the most important work that can be done for God and for man. He kept a record of his prayer requests and had over 50,000 recorded answers to prayer in his prayer books
- a compelling testimony that there is a living God who answers prayer. He and his team carried out over 57 Prayer Crusades (periods of forty days and nights during which at least eight hours are invested into prayer each day). They also carried out over 80 Prayer Sieges (times of near non-stop praying that ranges from 24 hours to 120 hours). He carried out over 100 Prayer Walks of between five and forty-seven kilometres in towns and cities around the world. He authored the Prayer Power Series, a 13-volume set of books on various aspects of prayer; Supplication, Fasting, Intercession and Spiritual Warfare. He started national and continental prayer movements in Cameroon and other nations. He worked with leaders of local churches in India to disciple and train more than 2 million believers.
Pr Fomum also considered fasting as one of the weapons of Christian Spiritual Warfare. He carried out over 250 fasts ranging from three days to forty days, drinking only water or water supplemented with soluble vitamins. Having received from the Lord a specific call to overthrow principalities and territorial spirits through prayer and fasting, he was enabled to carry out supralong fasts of between 52 and 70 days in his final years.
Fomum chose a lifestyle of simplicity and "selfimposed poverty" in order to invest more funds into the critical work of evangelism, soul-winning, churchplanting and the building up of believers. Knowing the importance of money and its role in the battle to reach those without Christ with the glorious Gospel, he and his wife grew to investing 92.5% of their earned income from all sources (salaries, allowances, royalties and cash gifts) into the Gospel. They invested with the hope that, as they grow in the knowledge and the love of the Lord, and the perishing souls of people, they would one day invest 99% of their income into the Gospel.
He was married to Prisca Zei Fomum and they had seven children who are all involved in the work of the Gospel, some serving as missionaries. Prisca is a national and international minister, specialising in the winning and discipling of children to Jesus Christ. She also communicates and imparts the vision of ministry to children with a view to raising and building up ministers to them.
The Professor owed all that he was and all that God had done through him, to the unmerited favour and blessing of God and to his worldwide army of friends and co-workers. He considered himself nothing without them and the blessing of God; and would have amounted to nothing but for them. All praise and glory to Jesus Christ!

The Way of Christian Service
People can do many things in the Lord’s name, but only that which flows from life will last, and to have the flow of life there must, first of all, be death. A person will minister in proportion to the extent to which he has died and risen with Christ. Those who spare themselves the hard demands of the cross will find that they have also spared themselves the ministry of life. The extent to whi
Knowing God (The Greatest Need Of The Hour)
Paul knew the Lord and yearned more and more to know Him. His service for the Lord sprang out of his settled and growing knowledge of the Lord.
There are many believers today who worship “the unknown God”. There are many who have never sought Him until He was revealed to them. There are many who do not know Him.
The Way Of Sanctification
We believe with ther Psalmist that daily Bible study and prayer (The Quiet Time) is indispensable in maintaining the sanctified life which is first entered into by faith in the finished work of Christ.
The Secret Of Spiritual Rest
This is a restless world. Many people are outwardly restless. Few are outwardly composed, apparently at peace, but most people are at war inside. The problem is that even many who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit are restless. They do not know inward peace. If they know it, they know it at such a superficial level that that peace can easily be disturbed.
Are You Still A Disciple Of The Lord Jesus?
In every race, the prize is awarded to those who run to the end. You might have started as a disciple of the Lord Jesus. That was a good beginning. However, I ask, “Are you still a disciple of the Lord Jesus?”
You Have A Talent!
God has given each human being his talent or talents to help him to find his place in the universe, and to function readily. Discovering your talent, developing it and maximising its potential will enable you to live and function readily in the sphere of labour that God assigns to you.
You Can Receive The Baptism Into The Holy Spirit Now
I was converted to Christ during my first week at the University. l faithfully grew in the Lord and was keen on winning others to the Lord. For three years, during which l witnessed to an average of three students a week, l saw three students converted to the Lord Jesus. l was however unsatisfied and wondered if there was not more to the matter of winning people to Christ than l was seeing.
La Restitution (Un Message Important Pour Les Vainqueurs)
Plusieurs pensent qu’une fois que quelqu’un est sauvé, Dieu lui pardonne et efface toutes les conséquences de ses péchés passés, et qu’il est libre, que sa liberté est si totale qu’il n’a aucune responsabilité pour ce qui est d’en finir comme il faut avec le passé, et d’entreprendre la restitution auprès de ceux qu’il a offensés dans le passé.
You Can Lead Someone To The Lord Jesus Christ Today
This book is an attempt to bring the people of God back to a soul-winning, that is, the bringing of the sinner into contact and union with the Saviour, and for evangelism that is again in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Brokenness: The Secret Of Spiritual Overflow
Jacob was a fighter and a man who was unyielding from the womb. Could it be that Jacob was anxious to come out first? Was the struggle one over the better position in the mother’s womb? Was it a matter of the quantity of food that they each had? We do not know the details, but it is likely that Jacob contributed significantly to the struggle.
The Art Of Working Hard
The Lord has given us work to do. He desires it accomplished. If we are to accomplish that work, we must put all that we are and all that we have into it. As far as this book is concerned, we must work with all our might. Only then can we satisfy His heart.
Divorce And Remarriage?
This book, “Divorce And Remarriage!” is the fourth in the series: “God, Sex And You.” The books in this series that have already been written are:
Book 01: Enjoying The Pre-marital Life
Book 02: Enjoying The Choice Of Your Marriage Partner
Book 03: Enjoying The Married Life
Book 04: Divorce And Remarriage!
The Way Of Spiritual Power
In the life of the church and in the life of each believer, there must be power that cannot be accounted for on any grounds. People looking must be able to say, “This is God at work” and nothing else.
L’art De Travailler Dur
Le Seigneur nous a donné du travail à faire. Il désire qu’il soit accompli. Pour accomplir ce travail, nous devons y mettre tout ce que nous sommes et tout ce que nous avons. Comme le présente ce livre, nous devons travailler de toute notre force. Ce n’est qu’ainsi que nous pourrons satisfaire le coeur de Dieu.
The Way Of Spiritual Encouragement
l have received answers to many of my questions, and my problems have found solutions in Him. Somehow, in a way l cannot explain, love has welled up in my heart for all His children - my beloved brothers and sisters in Him - irrespective of whatever differences we have had. He has been good to me.
La Délivrance De L’emprise Des Démons
Cela fait bientôt quatre ans que ces messages ont été écrits et prêchés. Mon fardeau de voir des croyants compétents délivrer ceux qui sont attaqués par des démons est demeuré intact
The Centrality Of Prayer
This book The Centrality of Prayer is a compilation of messages given in Yaoundé in August 2007 by Professor Fomum within the framework of the World University Prayer and Fasting to over 2000 brethren of our work coming from Cameroon and many nations.
The Way Of Spiritual Warfare
This book: “The Way of Spiritual Warfare,” is the eighth book in the Christian Way Series. We send this book out with prayer that the Lord should use it to raise some more saints who will fight the good fight and satisfy the heart of the Lord.
Deliverance From Sin
Although the five books are complementary and help the reader to have a more complete view of the theme, each book is complete in its own right and should be read for the profit of it.
Délivrance Du Péché De Paresse
La plupart des gens sont paresseux. Trop de croyants sont oisifs. Peu atteignent le potentiel que Dieu leur a donné. Le Royaume de Dieu souffre à cause de la multitude de spectateurs qui sont supposés être des soldats dans l’armée du Seigneur.
The School Of Truth
There is much falsehood in the world today. Even in the Church, truth is lacking. This is a most serious lack, for it hinders God enormously. God cannot do anything useful through a person who claims to be regenerated and yet continues to practice falsehood in one area of his life or the other.
The Way Of Overcomers
It is in the purpose of God that all His elect should overcome the devil, the world and the flesh. Unfortunately, many are overcome because of an unwillingness to pay the price. Overcomers are normal Christians.
Celebrity: A Mask
Using the example of General Naaman in the Bible who was hiding his leprosy and covering it up with the mask of military success, money, honour, celebrity and the like, the author lays emphasis on the fact that most people wear a mask. In fact, many people hide their condition by wearing the mask of money, women, celebrity, etc., whereas their hearts are rotten with sin.
La Croix Dans La Vie Et Le Ministère Du Croyant
Ce livre, La croix dans la vie et le ministère du Croyant est le sixième de la série “Faire du progrès spirituel”.
Dans le livre six, nous présentons la croix comme étant indispensable pour une vie spirituelle de bonne qualité dans et à travers le croyant.
Vision, Fardeau, Action: La Strategie Pour La Direction Spirituelle
Les gens doivent être dirigés. Lorsqu’il y a un dirigeant, on le suit. Le dirigeant spirituel est celui qui a fait le plus de progrès dans la connaissance et dans le service de Dieu. Une telle personne reçoit de Dieu une autorité que nul ne peut lui ôter. Personne ne peut le révoquer de la direction. Personne ne peut l’établir dans la direction.
Deliverance From The Sin Of Laziness
Most of the world is lazy. Too many believers are idle. Few attain their God-given potential. The Kingdom suffers because of the too many spectators who are said to be soldiers in the army of the Lord. Laziness is a deadly sin. The one who commits this sin can be delivered. That is what this book is about.
L’adoratrice Recluse: La Vie, Le Ministére, Et La Glorification De La Prophetesse Anne
Le Seigneur est le tout du croyant. Il est toute chose pour le croyant. Il devrait être cherché, trouvé, connu et aimé. Il devrait être fait la joie sublime du croyant, et, à partir de cette connaissance de Lui devrait découler le service qui satisfait Son coeur. Dieu cherche des amoureux qui Le serviront par amour, et non juste des serviteurs qui feront plusieurs choses pour Lui par devoir.
Un Vase Brisé
Au cours de ce séjour en Chine, je confrontai ma nullité et me mis à pleurer tel que cela est écrit dans les pages suivantes.
A Broken Vessel
During that stay in China, I confronted my nothingness and cried out as is expressed in the following pages
You Can Receive A Pure Heart Today!
Is your heart pure? In other words: Will you be in heaven? Will you see God? This book is written to help you to answer “yes” to these questions.
The Secluded Worshipper: The Life, Ministry, And Glorification Of The Prophetess Anna
The Lord is the believer’s all. He is the believer’s everything. He should be sought, found, known and loved. He should be made the believer’s bliss, and out of that knowledge of Him should flow service that satisfies His heart. God seeks lovers who, out of love, will serve Him, and not just servants who, out of duty, will do many things for Him.
The Ministry Of Praise And Thanksgiving
God demands that the saints render this ministry to Him unceasingly. He wants praise from His own round the clock. He is glad when praise flows from His to Him. He is disappointed when it does not come.
Knowing And Serving God (Volume Two)
It is particularly recommended for all those who are serving the Lord as missionaries at home or abroad, as well as anyone who occupies any form of responsibility in the local Church. You will find godly directives regarding various aspect of a spiritual work, life in the local Church as well as comments on some controversial issues in christianity.
Basic Christian Leadership
Christian leadership is not primarily an issue of nomination or title, but a position attained and maintained before God in all areas of the Christian life.
The Christian leader is ahead of others in all things particularly in the area of Christ-likeness.
Enjoying The Married Life
We send this book out with prayer that it should bring joy, happiness and fulfilment to you, both in this life and in the one hereafter.
Jouir De La Vie Sexuelle
Ce livre, Jouir de la vie sexuelle, est le premier dans la série intitulée : «Dieu, le sexe, et toi».
Jouir Du Choix De Ton Conjoint
Nous croyons que le dessein de Dieu, c’est que le mariage soit une expérience merveilleuse - un avant-goût du ciel sur la terre. Nous croyons qu’Il a le bon partenaire qu’il te faut, et que si tu coopères avec Lui, tu trouveras ce partenaire et tu en seras réellement béni. La question qui se pose est celle-ci: «Qui est ce partenaire? Comment le trouver?
O Amor E O Perdão De Deus
A Bíblia nos diz que Deus criou o mundo e todas as coisas : o sol, a lua, os animais do mar, os animais terrestres... Quando tudo foi feito, Deus viu que ficou bom. » ( Génesis 1 : 25). Deus criou também « o homem à sua imagem; à imagem de Deus o criou, homem e mulher os criou » (Génesis 1 : 27).
Tu Peux Recevoir Un Coeur Pur Aujourd’hui
Seuls ceux dont les coeurs sont purs verront Dieu. Ceux dont les coeurs ne sont pas purs ne verront pas Dieu. Ceux dont les coeurs ne sont pas purs ne seront pas dans la ville sainte à la fin des temps.
L’art De L’intercession
Ce livre parle de l’intercession et des intercesseurs. C’est le brûlant désir de voir un changement dans les vies des enfants de Dieu, dans l’Église du Seigneur et dans le Monde de Dieu, qui m’a poussé à l’écrire. Je sais que ce changement peut avoir lieu si des intercesseurs sont suscités par le Seigneur pour se tenir sur la brèche.
Le Ministere De Supplication
Dieu exauce les prières. Si les gens sont suffisamment désespérés à chercher Sa volonté, à connaître ce qu’Il veut et à combattre par la prière pour voir Sa Volonté s’accomplir, elle deviendra une réalité.
Prier Avec Puissance
J’ai été profondément touché par la qualité et la quantité des prières du Seigneur. Il priait. Compte tenu de la manière dont Il priait, il est évident qu’Il avait compris que toutes choses dépendaient de la prière.
Le Chemin Du Caractère Chrétien
Le caractère chrétien est très important. Le Seigneur Jésus veut que tous Ses disciples soient comme Lui dans leur caractère. Il a mis le Saint-Esprit en chaque croyant pour former ce caractère. Seuls ceux dont le caractère est conforme à celui du Seigneur Jésus peuvent être considérés comme entièrement sanctifiés.
