Rev. Dr. Josephine JamesFOUNDER, UNIQUE WOMEN FORUM INTERNATIONAL
Rev. Dr. Josephine James the founder and president of Unique Women Forum International, was born in February 1966 in a city called Aba, Abia State of Nigeria. She is the second daughter among a family of 10 children (8 girls and 2 boys). Before she knew the Lord, she was very religious and loves to be in the church with her grandmother. She has always wished to be a catholic sister, she had always desired to serve God all the days of her life. Josephine gave her life to Christ in 1982 at the age of 17 while in Secondary School. This encounter turned her heart to always ask, "What will I do to serve the Lord."
Josephine started growing in the Lord like every other girl, but there was something very peculiar about her life, the desire to study the word of God. At that age, because of her love for God she will always move out to preach the word of the Lord to the neighborhood. She was appointed one of the Sunday School Teachers, and as she grows she became one of the interpreters in the church. She interpreted from English to their vernacular language "Ibo." Her zeal and wisdom of speech because of the Word conditioned life made the pastor appoint her as the assistant of the women leaders. One may ask "are there no other women in the church?" When it is God it does not matter the age, but only God can answer certain questions of this life. She did it perfectly well and for many years. She even interpreted the man that later became her husband to today without knowing he will one day ask her hands in marriage.
As Josephine continue to serve the Lord in many departments of the church, The Lord spoke to her after her high school career concerning her ministry among the children and the women. This was confirmed by many and diverse revelations from God. After counseling from elderly ministers, she got so interested in children and was trained immediately in World Wide Child Evangelism Training Institute, Aba, Abia State Nigeria. She started working among the children in their church. She got married in 1987 and started working with her husband as they traveled to many places in Nigeria and other Nations of Africa. She also pastored a church with her husband in a village called Ojoto, Obofia in Anambra State of Nigeria. There she saw great manifestations of the Holy Spirit as she ministered among the women and the youth.
Later, Rev. Josephine got her Diploma in Theology from Trinity College of Ministerial Arts affiliate of International Bible College & Seminary of DeSoto, Missouri, USA. She also received a Bachelors in Ministry and Masters in Christian Education from Kingdom Harvest School of Ministry, Indiana, USA. Today Josephine has received a Doctorate in Practical Ministry from Kingdom Harvest School of Ministry, Indiana, USA.
