Our Visionary Leader


Prof. Zacharias Tanee Fomum

Visionary and founding Team-Leader of Christian Missionary Fellowship International (CMFI) – an evangelism, soul-winning, church-planting and disciple making movement with missionaries and Churches in over 100 nations on all the 6 continents.

As a passionate Evangelist and Preacher of the Gospel, he travelled extensively. He went out of his base in Yaounde on over 700 missionary journeys in Cameroon that ranged from 1 day to 3 weeks. He also embarked on over 500 missionary journeys that ranged from 2 days to 6 weeks, to over 70 nations on all the six continents.

His published scientific works were recently evaluated by the University of Durham in Great Britain and found to be research of high distinction, for which he was awarded the Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) in October 2005.
Professor ZT Fomum was a man of uncommon spirituality and a world shaping spiritual genius. He was exceptional in many domains. He was a University professor, a scientist, a world teacher on prayer and the spiritual life as well as a man of most unusual spiritual experiences. He was a team leader and apostle of a successful missionary work and movement. 

He was also a leading voice for revival. He was a workaholic and loving in his personal relationships in an unusual way and drew to himself men and women of girth and great gifts in life-long relationships and commitment to a cause. 
To Zach Fomum and those that God called with him, a distinct economy of the Gospel was entrusted that translated into a clear goal. The pursuance of that goal through obedience to God's specific instructions has gradually clarified the will of God and the means of accomplishing His purposes. God's will, God's ways, our responsibility, who we must be, what we must do to please God, and accomplish our goal, is presented here as our ministry.

This family man was married to Prisca Zei Fomum and their 7 children are involved with them in the work of the Gospel.
