African Biblical Leadership Initiative

“Come now, let’s reason together” - Isaiah 1:18

African Biblical Leadership Initiative (ABLI) sits to equip, inspire and encourage leaders to ignite personal and cultural transformation in Africa. Its message of change and transformation is anchored on the biblical values of integrity, harmony and social justice. ABLI aspires to fulfil this mission by becoming:

  • A Safe Gathering Place – ABLI is an apolitical and non-denominational initiative with sole intention to highlight the positive contribution of the Bible for the wider society. Coming to this gathering space to reflect and deliberate on the transformative nature of biblical values are leaders from government, churches, businesses, media and academia.
  • A Trusted Voice – ABLI speaks into the critical importance of integrity in public life, and the value of social harmony and the need for social justice, especially, for the youth and women in Africa.
  • A Mentorship Platform – ABLI provides mentorship for the youth with vision and aspiration to become leaders, and journey with them in their effort of integrating faith and professional or public life.
