Christian Okezie Chukwuka Christian Okezie Chukwuka is the founder/project coordinator of Abounding Grace Foundation. He is a Swedish citizen of Nigerian origin. He grew up in a poor family of seven (7) in Aba, South Eastern Nigeria. Due to the impoverished condition of his parents, the teenage Christian Chukwuka was sent out for slavery. His experience as a slave in Cameroon (Central Africa) and Maiduguri (Northern Nigeria) was so unbearable that he became emotionally battered and finally had to seek for greener pasture beyond the shores of Africa.

Christian’s journey to Europe wasn’t as rosy as he thought and with the influence of bad company he got involved in drug tracking which eventually landed him in a Swedish prison for eight years. While in prison, Christian Chukwuka experienced a paradigm shift that made him understand and appreciate the essence of life. Upon his release, from the prison in 2005, the now transformed Christian Chukwuka, relocated to London to avoid being influenced by his old cycle of friendsand being stigmatized.

Re-integration into the society wasn’t a pleasant process for Christian, but in the midst of the confusion and hopelessness, he found his mentor Rev Dr. David Ogbueli the President of Golden Heart Foundationand SeniorPastor of Dominion City worldwidewho has been nurturing and guiding him in his pursuit of purpose.

While in prison, a new ChristianChukwukaemerged with a strong passion to sensitize the prisoners, ex-convicts and youths on the consequence of crime.This gave birth to his vision of helping to transform youths, prisoners, ex-convicts and prison system, through seminars, outreaches and symposium, and mentorship program.

Christian Okezie Chukwuka, now an Evangelist is an agent of social transformation and has been taking his message of reformation, hope, love and forgiveness to inmates and ex-convicts in over 200 prisons across Europe and Africa for the past six years. He is married with seven adorable children.
