Eskinder Alemayehu — Director of Firm Foundation In Christ Ministries partnership with EKHC in Ethiopia

Eskinder grew up in a conservative Ethiopian Orthodox Church family, and came to know Christ in his teenage years through discussions with a school friend and has been serving the Lord in ministry ever since.

He feels called to minister to the unreached people groups in Ethiopia through evangelistic ministry. He attended Bible college, and was appointed Evangelist and Church Ministry Coordinator of his local church after graduation. After working for seven years with the local church, Eskinder accepted the call to serve at a national level–becoming a coordinator of the church planters training program in the missions department. He coordinated over a hundred and twenty-five training centers of the church planters all over Ethiopia, in two different languages. Eskinder has produced training materials for church leaders, pastors, evangelists, and ministers to evangelize, equip, disciple, and make leaders in the process of church planting.

Eskinder assisted FFICM in translating training material from English to Amharic, and was deeply compelled by the organization’s mission and ministry. Since then he has served alongside FFICM, equipping many people to evangelize, follow-up and train new believers in Ethiopia, Africa, and all over the world.

Since June 2019 he has been serving as the FFICM National Director for Ethiopia through the partnership that FFICM has with the Kale Heywet church in Ethiopia.
