Meet Prophetess Chi (Centia Ezeh).
The founder and visionary behind CWOI
I was born again on 30th June 1989. I knew my calling as an intercessor in 1990. Initially I was functioning in the office of an intercessor within my local church for a few years before I started to operate in the prophetic office.
In September 1999 I had an encounter with the Lord which lasted 12 days. After this encounter the Holy Spirit launched me into interceding for the Body of Christ. This encounter led me to send out a prophetic message titled “The Ball of Fire” to about 5,000 churches within England & Wales on the 4th of September 1999. The message of “The Ball of Fire” relates God’s unhappiness at His Church for not taking up their stand. Following the encounter the IAG (Intercessory Action Group) was launched on 8th January 2008. IAG is a group of women from different churches with the same vision who by instruction hold God’s hand until there is repentance and unity in the Body of Christ.
In 2005 IAG was commissioned by the Holy Spirit to come out of hiding and involve other groups and more churches. Following the direction of the Holy Spirit, that was shared with a few Pastors who identified with the vision of IAG and NWIN. The group was then formed with myself as one of the co-ordinators. The first meeting of NWIN was in October 2006 where about 50 churches in Manchester comprising Pastors and members attended a prayer meeting title “A Call for Repentance”.
Also, in 2006 whilst coming back from the Trumpet Call Conference, I was instructed by the Holy Spirit to start a ministry called “Challenge Ministry”. It’s purpose was to challenge the Body of Christ to it’s rightful position. It was then impressed upon my heart to run an inter-denominational worship seminar and a mentoring group for women. In July 2006 my husband and I organised an inter-denominational worship seminar with 12 worship groups from different churches participating. God’s name was glorified. The main aim of the seminar was to awaken the churches of God to true worship and how we ought to bring down the power of God in worship through righteousness and holiness.
Shortly after the worship seminar the burden to get the women together increased. I asked the Lord if He could confirm it by leading me to other Pastor’s wives with similar passion. He safely led me to Minister Sarah of World Harvest Christian Centre who has a passion for women and orphans. He also led me to Pastor Yemi of Body of Christ International with the same passion for women and children. Later I was introduced to Pastor Beatrice and Gail from Lighthouse Christian Church whose callings are also intercession.
On February 2007 I started the first mentoring group meeting in my house with three of us. Now we are 26 women Pastors and leaders from 16 different churches who come together to the mentoring session. Each person has testified to being challenged through the meeting.
