Our Purpose (Why We Exist)
As part of the larger Body of Christ around the world, “We exist to transform lives that will pursue God’s purpose and make kingdom impact”. We exist to raise ministers for diverse ministries.
Graced Family Chapel is the outworking of a vision God gave to Joseph C. Ibekwe on February 17, 1995. During a session of three days fasting and personal inquiry while in Lagos, God spoke specifically to him from Isaiah 58:12b in this manner: “Go raise the foundations of many generations; those that come out of thee shall build the old waste places, and you shall be called The repairer of the breach, The restorer of the paths to dwell in”. This vision led him to inaugurate a non- government organization on April 17, 1995, now called Foundation for Leadership & Education Development –FLED.
Later on in 1999, he founded FLED International Leadership Institute, a graduate professional leadership development Institution with the mandate to train and mentor transformational leaders in Africa. Joseph and his wife, Maryann, started Chapel of Grace Transformation Ministry in July 2012 in Karu Site, Abuja, Nigeria. The Church is to expand the mandate originally given to him, “to go raise the foundations of many generations…” Joseph is a professional journalist, and his wife is a Professional Public Accountant as an employee of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
He is the publisher of Future World Magazine and the Lead Coach at The Joseph Coaching International. In the past 30 years, they have individually and collectively served as supportive Ministers in different Ministries, including Christ Chapel International Churches, under Dr. Tunde Joda; Household of God Church, Lagos; under Rev. Chris Okotie; Living Faith Church under Bishop David Oyedepo, and The Summit Bible Church under Dr. Andrew Osakwe.
Joseph and Maryann are both graduates of Kenneth E. Hagin’s Rhema Bible Training Centre, Nigeria, were he specialized in spiritual and societal leadership; while she specialized in Supportive Ministry.
