Based in Dusseldorf (Germany) and Brussels (Belgium), Christel Lamère Ngnambi, a Belgian of Cameroonian origin, is passionate about all-life Christian discipleship and public engagement. Trained as a political scientist, he worked for 12 years as an analyst and then as a representative to the European Union for the European Evangelical Alliance in the fields of human rights, poverty, migration and the environment. This diversity of fields has led him to intersect the themes of ideas and convictions, social issues, political issues and existential questions. Today, Christel offers his services as a consultant in strategic and political communication, working among others with imagoDei in France and Cross-Current (IFES) in Europe to mentor and inspire young adults. His heart’s desire is to "make God matter" and see strategic partnerships among Christians emerge to effectively address today’s complex needs, to God’s glory. He is married to Victoria and loves playing African and Brazilian percussions.
