WELCOME - By their fruits shall you know them...
A Vision and Ministry for over 29 years!
There has never been a better time to serve Jesus Christ than now. All over the world, God is doing something wonderful and new. One of the greatest needs in the church is the need for a generation of leaders. People whose lives are giving others something to follow.
As we look into developing leaders, let us read Proverbs 4:20-23. What is in your life is determined by what is in your heart. Your heart determines your attitude in life. Your heart determines the success of your life. The direction of your life is determined by what is in your heart.
No matter what is happening around you, your life is built by what is happening in you. (e.g. The example of Joseph) That is why we are told to get the Word into the middle of our heart (Prov. 4:21).
In James 1: 21 we are told to receive the engrafted Word into the middle of our heart. Verse 22 says we must be the doers of the Word. Leadership starts in the heart. If you want to develop as a leader, it will need to start inside you. Many people have wrong things in their hearts. This affects their whole lives.
One of the signs of wrong things in the heart is negativity or defeat. If you are negative, it will affect your whole life and ministry.
Challenging the nations of the world, people of all tribes, cultures, traditions and languages to rise up and do a unique thing for the Glory of God today.
I personally welcome you to our website in the English language version, though english speaking, i have travelled and ministered in more than 25 countries and most of them are french speaking, so i am so proud to minister in both languages and other more.
Let me share this little testimony with you on; Practical Experience with God!
We have to demonstrate the power of God in our ministry. I preach a very practical Gospel, that God changes men, that God works miracles.
I have understood that, if we reduce the power of God and dismiss the miracles out of the Bible, then we come to the position of many in the Western countries especially, who cannot see the difference between the Hindus, Moslems and the Christian church. So they hold combined meetings, coming together – but it is NOT the same God we worship!
There is only ONE God. There is only ONE way into the Kingdom of God – we have got to get back to the authority of the Bible!
I believe the Word of God! If you start to take part of the Bible out, what have you left? If you say, “Oh, I do not believe this bit and that bit,” – well what DO you believe? How much do you believe? I believe it is “all or nothing”.
It is not our theological learning, rather our practical experience with God that counts. There is a song we are singing in the churches today, “These are the days of Elijah’. Where is Elijah?
To me this is a challenge. If you sing, ‘These are the days of Elijah’, you are also saying that these are the days of national spiritual backsliding! Then we NEED the Elijah’s who can call down the fire from Heaven and causes the people to repent! Not just one – we need a hundred Elijah’s!
Join us in praying for God’s will and desire to be revealed in the hearts of men and women taking places and positions as pastors and leaders in the Churches today!!!
Dr Alpha Grace
Dr Alpha Grace accepted the divine call of God upon his life to preach and teach the Word of God and to make disciples for our Lord Jesus Christ in 1987. His walk with God took another turn when he came to Switzerland, specifically the French speaking region, by what we believe was an absolute divine arrangement. It was in this region that he does not understand the language that the scope of his call began to unfold. Since then, with consistency of prayer, faith, and humility he has preached the Word of God in several nations of the world and impacted many lives.
In early 2000 as he waited on the Lord in prayer and meditation for further directions concerning the call of God on his life, God spoke to him through the Holy Spirit about the apostolic and spiritual nature of his call.
The amazing Grace of God on his life is the result of the strong gift of prayer coupled with the power of the Holy Spirit's anointing on his ministry. This makes him stand out as one of the distinguished humble servants of God with a clear message for our generation.
THE GLOBAL VISION
Some few years ago, during a lengthy time of praying and meditation, the Lord showed Dr Grace a vision of the Globe descending from the presence of God that seemed to be rotating and floating in the room in which he was. The Spirit of Prophecy came upon him and he prophesied upon the globe as he followed it with these words, "and the glory of God shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea". Habakkuk2:14, Numbers 14:21.
With many infallible proofs from God to him personally and also through seasoned Christian leaders it has become increasingly evident that God has a global apostolic ministry for him to the entire world.
We do believe God has given abundant grace to this ministry to preach this Gospel of the Kingdom of God in the entire world for a witness unto all nations. For it is the will of God that the kingdoms of this world shall become the Kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ. (Mt 24:14, Rev 11:15)
To fulfill this goal around the nations of the world within the time span God has given to us. PSALMS 2:8
The Vision and Mission God has given us is not for just one or two of us to achieve. We believe that the Lord Who called His servant to do this job has people all around the world whose heart He has prepared to stand with us. We have confidence that those the Lord will touch to stand with us WILL obey the voice of the Lord and stand with us through all the varied ways the Lord will individually lead them to support us. We therefore do not cease to pray that God touch hearts and lives and provide for you by multiplying your seed sown into Alpha Global Ministries.
We also need your prayer, goodwill, counsel, and support in faithful dimensions.
We of AGM believe that even as you read this, the Lord will stir your heart as to what you can do to make the kingdom of this world become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. For we believe that based on Marfk 16:20, the Lord shall work with you and I, to confirm His Word with signs following.
"I believe that based on Habakkuk 2:14 that the Glory of God shall cover this earth and every nation, city, tribe, and home shall experience a phenomenal move of the Spirit of Grace so much so that on the final day of judgment, no nation or peoples shall say we did not hear the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. For there shall be no reason to do so". We are in that season when God shall pour out His Spirit upon all flesh; the hour is here with us. This is it !

The African Strategic Leadership Conference is a people-powered movement with a transformative agenda for social change in the African Diasporas worldwide.
In 2012 a few Africans in the Diaspora in Europe, Middle East and America began meeting privately to discuss their concerns about the ability of the Africans in the Diaspora to act collectively. Soon they were joined by an equally concerned group of women. Thus, the African Strategic Leadership Conference was born.
Today we focus on doing three things well:
We continuously convene black leaders at all levels to build a positive culture and productive relationships across sectors.
We develop opportunities for collective action to address the most critical issues affecting the physical, social, educational and economic health and well-being of all Africans in the Diaspora, individuals and families.
And, we advocate innovative policies and practices with the promise to transform our communities and the broader society.

Economic: Improve Economic Security for Families and Communities
Many Western countries enjoys a high standard of living, but benefits of a relatively strong economy are not equitably distributed amongst people of color and the poor.
For instance, recent research indicates that when compared to the 25 largest metropolitan areas in the world, Europe has the largest gap in employment rates between workers of African descents and their European peers, even when they are in pocession the citizenship of the countries concerned. Further, median income for people of African descent is 63 cents for every Euro of median income for Europeans.
Address racial disparities in employment by increasing creating incentives for employers to create new jobs in low-employment areas where African Diasporas are converged.
Create a “worker’s prosperity” package that includes a raise minimum wages, an expansion of tax credits benefiting working families, and increased access to education.
Reform public assistance systems so that they improve outcomes for families and children.
Increase family stability through affordable pathways to home ownership and foreclosure prevention.
Ensure that African Diasporas benefit from community development expenditures and procurement systems.
Create an urban jobs Pilot – Attract new jobs by creating tax-free zones for businesses seeking to recrute in areas with the highest rate of disparities in employment among the African Diasporas in Europe.
Worker’s Prosperity Package – Ensure proposed tax reform is progressive and fair for working families. Create a pro-worker package that increases minimum wage, and enhances tax credits that support family economic security.
Family Policy Reform - Comprehensive reform that restores access to education, makes childcare continuous regardless of a parent’s status in the program, and replaces the “work first” bias with a standard of “policy ending employment.” Additionally, remove barriers to accumulating assets by enhancing public assistance systems with a continuum of asset-building mechanisms, and increasing the exit level to 140% of poverty.
Education: Increase Education Opportunity for Families That Need It Most
A quality education is elemental to ending poverty in the world. We need to have a global-leading racialized gap in educational attainment. 82 percent of non-African students graduate from high school on time, but that number is less than 49% for African descents and the Diasporas. Further, while 43 percent of non-African descents and the Diaspora have earned a Bachelor’s degree, only 27 percent African descents and the Diasporas have done so.
Though many things contribute to school success for students, we believe education expenditures should focus on proven strategies that address school-based factors. Conclusive research suggests that the best public education investments focus on high quality early childhood education, improving instructional quality in classrooms, and increasing educational opportunity and equity in school districts. African descents and the Diasporas children worldwide deserve leadership that funds a universal system of education that results in educated citizens.
Increase parental empowerment and pathways to educational opportunity.
Increase access to a universal system of high-quality early childhood education African Diasporas children that can most benefit from early interventions.
Establish training for teachers and administrators to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the classroom.
Increase options for students to complete high school on time, and close the gap between primary schools and college.
Health: Foster Resilient and Healthy Families from Prenatal Through Senior Years
Despite the Western world’s overall standing as one of the healthiest nations, people of color and African descents are disproportionately experience poor health, illness, and death.
Racialized disparities in health are further aggravated by high poverty in many European communities of African descents and the Diaspora. Low-income families access intensive prenatal, medical, and dental care at lesser rates, which is a major contributor to overall health outcomes.
Increase access to high-quality health care for children, families, and marginalized communities.
Increase culturally relevant mental, chemical, and behavioral health services for African Diasporas and foster success in health care careers.
Maintain a commitment to collecting and sharing health data that is disaggregated by race
Reduce environmental exposure to health risks and youth violence.
Close the gaps in health coverage - Create a quality “basic health care plan” for families and individuals that cannot afford options offered through national health care exchange.
A Smart Health Care Exchange – Ensure that governance over Minnesota’s health care exchange is Independent of insurance industry conflicts of interest at the governance level.
Accessible to all communities through dedicated community-based “navigators.”
ASLC: Empowered to negotiate for the most affordable and high quality health on behalf of African Diasporas wherever they are
Policy Action Team
The Policy Action Team shall bring co-chairs from our national workgroups together with ASLC members that are interested in making a difference through policy to develop a policy framework for the whole Conference.
The Policy Action Team will....
Review workgroup action plans, consider policy implications, develop an annual policy framework and legislative agenda
Review, consider, and make recommendations for full forum support (or non-support) of pending policy or socio-political issues.
Develop relationship strategy for working with allies, influential, and elected officials to advance ASLC agenda.
In the case of the AfroSwiss communities and its interactions with the broader Helvetic society, we have reached what is known as a Nash equilibrium: Unless the broader Helvetic society sees a benefit to itself for improving the conditions of AfroSwiss communities, the allocation of resources and opportunities will remain unchanged. The Nash equilibrium also suggests that groups that have enough social cohesion to negotiate a common agenda can improve their chances of transforming the playing field and changing the entire game.
