MUSLIM CONVERTS TO CHRISTIANITY
A growing number of muslims are converting to Christianity all over the world. Most of these people lead ordinary lives but a hand-full are prominent names and a force to be reckoned with, in Christian ministry.
In my opinion, muslim converts to Christianity tend to be more committed and fervent in their faith than their counterparts from nominal Christian backgrounds. I don't know if this has to do with their conversion experience or the fact that they realise it's a life and death decision, so it's either all or nothing.
I am in the process of compiling a list of former muslims who are now sold-out to Christ and doing exploits in His name. This will be updated as I discover more of them.
1. Tunde Bakare: Out-spoken pastor and founder of Latter Rain Assembly Lagos, Nigeria.
2. Matthew Ashimolowo: Senior pastor and founder of the largest church in western Europe, KICC, London.
3. Yemi Balogun: Pastor and Christian media executive.
4. Paul Jinadu: General Overseer New Covenant Church.
5. Yinka Yusuf: Evangelist and founder Household of Love Church, Nigeria.
6. Walid Shoebat: Palestinian-American ex-terrorist turned Christian speaker.
