You think you’re busy?  Today on episode 81,   I’m going to talk to a man who, along with his wife, lead a church of over 300 hundred disciples. He is also a hydroelectrical engineer who has overseen a massive hydroelectric powerplant.  He now serves as an adviser and cabinet secretary to the president of his country as head of state in charge of water and electricity issues.  In this episode he'll share his secrets to leading in the Kingdom and in a secular career.  He shares:

  • How he dreamed of living a life like Nehemiah, who served both the king and the kingdom of God.
  • What has made the difference for him in balancing his responsibilities
  • How he avoided the temptations that come with his high-powered role in his country
  • How he deals with the pressure of "keeping the lights on" for his entire country
  • How he makes the time for God and his family

Geoffroy was recognized as a self-supporting Evangelist in May 2016.
