Badi is 34 years old and was born into a large family in the DRC (Congo). They relocated to Johannesburg in 1993 and he has had a heart for Jozi ever since! In 2010 he married Stephanie and they now have two handsome boys short of 12 months apart, Aydon and Joziah.
Badi became a Christian in late high school after a series of key events which included the death of a friend's brother, the loss of his dad's business, and the viewing of a play that portrayed the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was at university through the Campus Outreach ministry that he was discipled in faith and began to feel a calling to vocational ministry.
After graduating from the University of Johannesburg with a Sport Psychology degree, Badi worked for Campus Outreach and spent time helping young students know and treasure Christ, and also worked as an apprentice for a local church near the University of Johannesburg. He then attended George Whitfield College in Cape Town for his theological studies, and has worked as a pastor ever since, joining the BBC team in 2014.
Badi and Stephanie love engaging with their community and having people over to their house for meals and games. Badi also enjoys playing and watching sports of any kind, but especially rugby and American football.
