BRIEF HISTORY OF MENTOR CHRIS ACADEMY
The vision of Mentor Chris Academy was conceived on 23rd October, 2014. He was in a dream and saw where he was inviting teachers, preachers, instructors and different types of resource persons and introducing them before the large crowd who were sitting in a hall with pillars surrounding it. In that dream he was the founder of what he described as a fellowship centre and he invites people from different denominations to come and teach there. He woke up and could not understand the dream since he has no intention of starting a fellowship. In another dream, he saw himself introducing Bishop (Dr.) David Oyedepo, President and Founder, Living Faith Church (Winners’ Chapel) to the podium. The excitement he had woke him up in that dream and he began to think what these types of dreams could be. Two months later, he was listening to a radio and he heard an announcement about a theology school based in Benin-City and a friend told him that the announcer was referring to him. He asked him “why me?” the man said “because you are a pastor and you are hiding…” the following day he went in search for the school. He got admission to study theology at African School of Theology, Benin-City, an Affiliate of University of America, Murrietta, California, U.S.A.
While at school of theology, his professor, Apostle P. U. Ikeanyibe gave an assignment and due to his manner of teachings, the professor observed him and told him before the class that he saw the character of a counselor in him. He advised him to develop it adding that he can do well as a counselor when combined with pulpit preacher.
In 2016, Mentor Chris began to organize public teachings first at Adili Hotel, Nnewi and radio program on Alpha Fm. From there he began to put into practice his mentorship prowess and in 2017 he opened a website known as www.mentorsforumintl.com. He created various social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp Groups, Twitter, and so on.
In 2018, knowing that business and God do mix, while organizing online/offline free mentoring seminar presentations he met Reverend Father Onyia, the south east coordinator for Poder Alternativa Lared and decided to invite him and his team to Mentor Chris Academy.
The occasion took place at Royal Garden, opposite Trig-Point Hotel Awka, Anambra State. That is how Mentor Chris Academy became recognized pulling together people from different works of life. From that day the Academy began to host registered members of Palared every week in Royal Garden Hotel, and later moved to Liberty Suites along Zik Avenue, Awka and one day The Resident Pastor of Living Word Baptist Fellowship, Amawbia, Awka came to the training centre at Liberty Suites and decided to support this vision with his church hall to enable a conducive environment for the training free of charge.

THE COMING OF REVEREND FATHER (DR.) BASIL ONYIA TO THE ACADEMY
History was made on 14th July, 2018, when Mentors’ Forum Intl entered into partnership with a Spanish organization known for raising professional Solar Engineers, training on entrepreneurial skills and providing financial empowerment for small scale businesses. The agency is known as Poder Alternativa Lared (Palared).
The opening ceremony which took place at Royal Garden Hotel, Awka, attracted over 200 participants. The banquet hall of the hotel was filled to capacity.
It was a clear indication of the saying that what differentiates extraordinary people from ordinary ones is their ability to recognize and take advantage of opportunity whenever it presents itself. The gathering was an opportunity filled event as a lot of people went home with enough information and promised during the interview section to implement them in their lives.
“One of the key factors that led to this partnership is the fact that almost all our monthly earnings are being spent in other to generate electricity but to no avail. Even the federal government of Nigeria has never come near to success in this regard. If we can relate with this agency and learn how we can generate our own source of light by ourselves without the involvement of the commercial power supply, we think our covenant with monthly payment of “darkness bill” will be broken permanently.” Mentor said.
Father Onyia who was our Resource Person also doubles as the Regional Representative for Palared. He is a university lecturer, and founder “Yes You Can” Foundation and an entrepreneur per excellent.
He took time to sensitize the youths on the need to engage themselves on different streams of incomes as the only sure way of survival in this recession.
Poder Alternativa Lared promises to empower each of her registered members in three different ways:

  1. By making them their own power generators through their training on how to construct and install inverter and sola
  2. By empowering their members through knowledge. Apart from teachings on how to install solar light and inverter, they promised to teach the following: how to design website, computer programming, computer hardware, software, and cosmetology and lifetime mentorship on financial intelligence.
  3. Finally, every Palared member will stand a chance of being empowered financially so that they can start their own businesses. So, the platform is targeted at making her members to earn money while they learn.
    The highlight of the seminar was the production of disinfectant by two of our participants in the presence of other participant.
