About the President

Edith Chima-Orji was brought up in a Christian family at a very tender age. Her life was greatly influenced and shaped by her grand-mother who was a devoted and dedicated Christian. She taught her how to pray, respect, obey and fear God. She was indeed a prayer warrior.

Through her guidance, she was not involved in most of the vices prevalent among her peers. Though her grandmother did not have any formal education, she taught her how to work hard. And this helped her a lot in her educational and spiritual activities.
Edith gave her life to Christ in 1986 when she was in high school. The following year (02/22/1987) she was baptized and received the Holy Ghost baptism.

Being raised in a Christian home afforded her an opportunity to be rooted in the Word of God throughout her childhood. At the age of 16, the Lord placed the call of ministry in her life, but she did not yield to the call because of ignorance. Twelve years later the calling came back again in 1998.

The Lord gave her a burden to serve the needy and helpless people in Benin Republic and the world at large. She battled with the vision since 1998 refusing to go into any ministry apart from her local church where she worships. The burden to serve and to do the will of God took over her completely and she surrendered to the work of God.

The Lord ministered to her that the mission will be on evangelism and welfare. That is taking the gospel of Christ to rural and urban areas and to see to the welfare of the needy, prison inmates, less privileged, orphans, homeless etc.


When she looked at her calling physically, it seemed a difficult task to undertake. But God took absolute control and proved Himself God by providing the needed grace to do His work.

The International Women of Faith Fellowship came into existence in 16th June 2003. Since then God has been so good and faithful to her and her family. And it is my earnest prayer to live a life worthy to reign with Him in His kingdom.

Edith Chima is the Founder/President of International Women of Faith Fellowship (IWOFF); which came into existence in 16th June 2003.
