Destiny Empowerment

Empowering you to fullfil your God given destiny


Welcome to CITY OF REFUGE Ministries Inc

Dr Abimbola Adewumi Alabi, PHRi,  a Human Resources Specialist with over twenty years of International Business and Consulting experience is an ordained and licensed Minister of the Gospel.
He is known for influencing Leadership and Management values in people, providing both individual and corporate training and consultancy.

Dr Alabi was called at the peak of his career by God to empower people to fulfil their Destiny in the Market Place. His passion for leadership has undoubtedly inspired the subject of one of his unpublished works, “Why Christian Leaders fail in the Market Place” which highlights reasons why some Christian leaders fail at the market place and the antidotes for such failures.
