The Rev. Princeton E. Abaraoha, who is originally from Nigeria, will share the story of his conversion to Christianity during a guest speaker appearance at Central Presbyterian Church’s Wednesday Night Fellowship on Oct. 15, 2014.
Abaraoha, who is pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Midlothian, will speak at 6:15 p.m. in the CPC sanctuary following the fellowship meal downstairs. Food is served beginning at 5 p.m. All are welcome. A $5-per-person donation is suggested, or $20 per family.
Abaraoha served a short stint as a child soldier during the civil war in his home country. “All of us who call ourselves Christians have stories to tell that relate to how we came to faith or what difference faith makes in our lives,” said the Rev. Matt Curry, CPC pastor. “Yet some people have been given a special and powerful calling in regard to what the redeeming power of Christ’s love means to them. Princeton is one of those people. We are excited to have him tell his story in Waxahachie.”
Abaraoha, who is a church planter and evangelism coach, has shared his story of faith in the United States and around the world. Before joining the Presbyterian Church (USA), he served several nondenominational immigrant churches and fellowships in Oklahoma and Texas. Abaraoha is a graduate of the Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University. He is married to Charity and they have three children: Obinna, 22, a student at Texas Tech; Daniel, 18, a freshman in college; and Esther, 15, who is in the 10th grade.
