Hagnos Empowerment Initiatives (HEI) is a unique seamless faith-based organization with the mandate to implement diverse streams of relational activities by providing empowering engagements for leadership restructuring through biblical perspectives and sound doctrinal values. Our activities promote partnership with several church organizations, related Christian non-profit organizations, government institutions for human empowerment and transformation. HEI’s goal is to foster a commitment to people across all age group that will promote interpersonal internal skills, pro-social friendships, and reassert a sense of hope in the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be re-established that will give humans the commitment to follow through on path to maturity with a sense of goal and accomplishment.


There are certain needs in the church we have identified that brought the mission of Hagnos Empowerment Initiatives (HEI) in a time like this. They are as follows;

  • Leadership deficiencies built on pyramidic model and not relational or centric.
  • Religious operational activities based on individualistic hierarchy and not on flattening approach.
  • Misinterpretation and abuse of apostolic and prophetic doctrines of Christ within the church leadership systems.
  • More people are leaving the Church than ever in the history of Christianity; many believers have stopped attending  Church services and are now categorized by the term described as Church refugees.
  • Less emphasis within the Church on the awareness of drastic changes occurring in the world systemic impact through accurate trend analysis and insight-based information as evident in the Bible.

Having mentioned some of the points above, there is need to note some facts in our present world. Everything in the world is changing at a rapid pace. There is an exponential technological change in the world, the nature of work, jobs, career pursuit, medical world are changing because of robotics, because of artificial intelligence and emerging new technologies. In the coming years from now, certain things will become obsolete hence; for the Church to make maximum impact within her environs at the coming seasons, there must be adequate shift of leadership renewal and coherence of emphasis based on in-depth accurate biblical interpretations in identifying authentic model of leadership that represents the person of our Lord, Jesus Christ and His true Ekklesia on earth.


The purpose of HEI was founded on the basis to promote and strengthen the Church leadership system in Ireland and beyond and to create a unique system of empowerment that will bring cooperate success driven by unity and true oneness. Therefore, our aim is to provide the following solutions as follows;

  • Identifying and bridging the gap analysis of leadership deficiencies and introducing more advanced kingdom centric model or design of leadership.
  • Acknowledgment of flattening approach of operations to achieve true collective sustainable success that strengthens each other on mutual respect while recognizing the avenues of maximizing and fulfilling our purposes in God.
  • Emphasis on accurate Apostolic grace and works of Christ through biblical examples and recognizing righteousness received by grace for personal maturity.
  • Provision of dynamic ways of friendship to the unchurched and creating relationship based on genuine love and empowerment.
