Biographie Zacharias Tanee Fomum: Professor Zacharias Tanee Fomum a Cameroonian, born in 1945, received the Lord Jesus as his Saviour in 1956 and consecrated his life to the Lord Jesus Christ in 1966 while he was a student in Fourah Bay College, Sierra Leone. Because of the vision he had to see Cameroonians turn to Christ in multitudes and to have churches planted in every part of the nation, he began to prepare spiritually for this by praying virtually everyday for Cameroon with his beloved wife Prisca while in Fourah Bay College. His ministry began in Cameroon in 1975. His preaching were with such demonstration of the power of God that the miracles that backed the power of the Word were the news of the day in one of the outstanding newspapers of the nation: "Cameroon Tribune" the government paper which reported his evangelistic ministry in articles like " Evangelical Hurricanes hit Bamenda" and "Miraculous Healings in Bamenda". The preaching with power shook many places especially Ngaoundere in the Moslem north of Cameroon where multitudes have come to Christ. People brought out fetishes to be burnt and destroyed. He has been called, "The Evangelist of Cameroon", "The Billy Graham of Cameroon". As leader and founder of Christian Missionary Fellowship International, his ministry grew such that the church in Yaounde, the nation's capital is now more than 10.000 members and there are churches today in approximately 700 localities in Cameroon. There is a growing outreach to the Pygmies in the south. There are missionaries from Cameroon involved with church-planting in many localities in the nation of Cameroon. CMFI has a strong missionary vision for disciple-making both in the local and international fields. They have missionaries and churches today in more than 50 nations of the world. Professor Z. T. Fomum is the author of more than 100 Christian books on prayer, missions, leadership, Christian Living and Service. Over 75 of these have been published and are in circulation in a number of languages. Four million of his books are in circulation in French and English. Professor Fomum is involved in church-planting, leadership training, preaching, and church edification through the ministry of the word. He has already preached the Gospel in more than 50 countries in the world including the underground church in China and taught on prayer in 33 localities in India. He is a man who prays for an average of 7 hours a day. He is praying virtually every night alone or with a team of recklessly committed prayer partners. They are overwhelmed by the greatness of the unfinished task of winning the lost and planting churches and fear to fail God! Days of Prayer, seasons of prayer, complete fasts of 1 to 40 days duration and prayer walks in giant and mega cities of the world for the overthrow of territorial satanic spirits are part of his ministry. He has led several victorious battles for the overthrow of territorial satanic spirits worldwide and in Cameroon.

Academically, Professor Zacharias Tanee Fomum obtained a first class Bachelor of Science degree, graduating as the Fourah Bay College's prize winning student in 1969. In 1973, he obtained the PhD in Organic Chemistry. Thirty years of post doctoral research

have enabled him to publish over 100 articles in learned international journals of Chemistry and to supervise over 90 master's and doctorate theses. His research work was recently examined by the University of Durham, Great Britain and found to be of very high distinction for which he has recently earned the D.Sc (Doctor of Science), the first Cameroonian to earn such a degree. He is a full professor of Organic Chemistry in the University of Yaounde 1, Cameroon.
