Jakisa has been with Empower One Africa serving as the Deputy Regional Leader for DRC since January of 2018. He is primarily responsible in the training of pastors and leaders. He also helps with teaching at the Extension Site of the School of Church Planting in DRC.

“I love training pastors and teaching students in the Extension Site for the School of Church Planting.”

When not teaching and training, Jakisa loves spending time with his family as well as working on projects around home.

He heard about Jesus in 2000 from a friend who was sharing the testimony of a believer who repented. He shared about his past life of sin and how Jesus changed his life.

“The testimony touched my life and I found myself in the same situation. From that moment I decided to go and look for a pastor to guide me in my decision because my friend was unable to do so.”

Jakisa was invited by David Kaya to attend the Empower One School of Church Planting (formerly NEATS). A growing network of churches had started forming in DRC in partnership with Empower One Africa. After graduation, Jakisa was invited to join the staff of Empower One.

“I decided to join them because of its vision and mission which is what every church and pastor ought to consider as important; the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ found in the gospel.”
