I am Pastor Charles Emmanuel, President/Founder of Divine Life Ministries Int'l with headquarters in Kiev, Ukraine where I live with my family.
I am also a life and business strategist, a #1 bestselling author and publishing consultant for Pastors, Entrepreneurs and Corporate Executives.
Though trained as a medical doctor, I hold a BA in Christian Ministry from the Accelerated School of Christian Ministry International (ASCMI) Philadelphia, USA. I also hold a Ministers' Ordination License from The Church Triumphant Inc. Philadelphia.
In more than 12 years of being a pastor and speaking internationally, I have had the privilege of speaking in churches, conferences, and seminars all over Ukraine, other parts of Europe and Nigeria.
I have also been invited to the Ukrainian National Parliament to speak on “Effective Strategies for Human Capital Development in Youths.”
I pioneered Divine Life Ministries in Lugansk Ukraine few months after I arrived the city to study Medicine and Surgery.
It was a school with more than 60 nations present and at the time, very few blacks. So being a believer in the ministry philosophy of conversion growth rather than transfer growth, I started with 4 people and began to reach out to ONLY unbelievers (Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Sikh, and Atheists) in the land.
Ten years after, that work has emerged into an international ministry with a tangible presence in three continents of the world.
So far, our commission has raised 22 pastors in our ministry with 4 of them pioneering ministries in India, Ghana, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Over the years, our ministry has organized several crusades, seminars, and programs with thousands of people in attendance. Some of our most common periodic events are:
Believers In Ministry Conference
Ministry Publishers Conference
Soul Winners' Seminar
Young And Influential Conference
Media, Books And More
My works have been featured on Fox News, The Sun, ABC, CBS, NBC, New York Chronicles, Digital Journal, Radio Nigeria, Addicted2Success and other international media outlets.
For more than 7 years, I have been helping ministries develop strategies, systems, and action plan to drive them towards the actualization of their goals and objective. I also assist in training leaders and staff members who carry a burning passion for the fulfillment of the corporate mandate of the assembly.
Pastors often get me on board to help them stir up their teams, leadership, and members to rekindle their passion for the great commission and reach out to the communities in ways that are super effective in this 21st century.
I have authored several books, training programs and ministry curricular. Some of my bestselling books include:
Passion For Souls: Effective Soul Winning For The 21st Century
Preparing For The Future: An Insight Into Building A Great Future
Reigning In Life
The Emergence of Champions: Revealing The Champion In You
The Man In Christ: An Insight Into New Creation Realities
The Mission, The Message, And The Messenger
Why Many Are Called But Few Are Chosen: The Distinguishing Factor
And several others.
I am happily married to my love and Queen, Pastor Layo Charles Emmanuel - an anointed minister of the gospel with an incredible healing ministry. We are blessed with a princess named Sophia and we live in Kiev, Ukraine.
