The Rev. Francis Ejiroghene Waive got born-again through the activities of the Scripture Union in October 1977. His experience in the Lord got deepened when he was baptized in the Holy Ghost on October 18th 1980. It was on that day that he received the call of God “to go preach the gospel to the lost and deliverance to the captives”.
An Accountant by training, Francis has experience in Banking as well as private Accountancy practice. He served as President of the Students’ Union Government during his University days at Ekpoma, Nigeria and has been in Pastoral Ministry since June 1982.
As an Evangelist, Francis has preached the gospel all over Nigeria and on the Continents of Asia, Africa, Europe and North America.
He has also authored some books (like SAVED, HEALED & DELIVERED: the story of Francis Waive, GOD’S CALL AND MY RESPONSE: continuing story of Francis Waive, LIVING BY FAITH etc.) and writes for some Nigerian weeklies like THE GUARDIAN and THE POINTER.
He and his wife Rita are blessed with five children: Frank, Ebenezer, Timothy, Samuel and their daughter Faith. They make their home in Warri Delta State Nigeria, West Africa where he oversees the ministry.
It was in December 1996 that Rev. Francis Waive was led of God to resign his position with The Gospel Church of Christ and begin FRESH ANOINTING MISSIONARY MINISTRIES. The ministry has since been incorporated by the Federal Government of Nigeria and is committed to World Evangelization and the Revival of the Church.
The church base for the ministry: CHURCH OF THE ANOINTING began on the 17th of May 1997. Today this fledging church is a household name in the city of Warri, with attendance already in the hundreds.
