Founders of Christ Foundation Family Church
Apostle Leslie Buabasah
Reverend Dr. Leslie Buabasah is the General Overseer of Christ Foundation Family Churches. He was ordained into full-time ministry in 1981 after attending bible college in All Nations For Christ in Benin, Nigeria.
He worked under Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams of C.A.F.M Intl. for 18 years, primarily as the director of music and the missions director. Under his leadership, the headquarters church grew in a significant way because he introduced the style of music that brought in the youth in droves. He was also in charge of music in various national crusades like the T.L. Osborn crusades, Oral Roberts crusade and the Benny Hinn crusade.
In partnership with the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship executives, several chapters were established in West Africa and beyond. As missions director for the church, he served in and helped in crusades to establish several sister churches. In 1994, he was sent to pioneer a church in a suburb of Accra, Ghana. From a membership of 30 people, the church has grown to over a 1,000 members in the headquarters church. He and his wife Reverend Mrs. Emily Buabasah were officially released to handle that work in 1995. He has since set four sister churches in different locations in Ghana and recently established another church in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA. He is involved in medical missions in deprived areas and the prisons.
Apostle Leslie, as he is affectionately called, is a very well respected man of God who has helped advance the gospel in Africa. He is a dynamic teacher of the unadulterated Word of God with signs following his ministry.
