Missionaries Benjamin and Mandu Tomah

Benjamin and Mandu pastor the International Bible Church in Monrovia, Liberia, where they have active hospital, prison, and community outreach ministries that have seen many souls come to Christ. They also train pastors and leaders and plant churches throughout their region.

Since their first church plant in 2003, the Tomahs have raised up pastors and planted churches in Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire. They also partner with churches in Sierra Leone and the Republic of Guinea, providing them with leader training and teaching materials.

Pastor Benjamin says the Jesus Film has been an effective tool for gathering people for the gospel message, especially in rural areas, and with the addition of discipleship training, they have been able to lay a foundation for many of their church plants.

The Tomahs thank North for the unflinching support they and their leaders receive to make their ministries functional, feasible, and possible.

More about Benjamin and Mandu

While Benjamin was a public school teacher, they were involved in setting up and running Sunday school programs and cross-cultural church planting; not thinking about pastoring until the civil war began and he had to leave teaching. God called and they pastored a church from 1991 to 1994 when the civil war intensified and they were forced to flee into Cote d’Ivoire where they planted many rural churches. Upon their return to Liberia, they began IBC in Monrovia.

About Liberia

Liberia is largely a Christian nation by practice and history, but is surrounded by countries with stronger Islamic influence. Liberia could be used as a springboard for the spread of Christianity to the neighboring countries, the sub-region, and the highly-concentrated Muslim areas such as North Africa.
