Anyanime Umoren, President Founder

Anyanime grew up in a polygamous family in the Inen Ikot Eteye village of the Niger Delta. His mother dedicated him to the Lord from a young age, and Anyanime was born again and baptized in 1994. Anyanime received a calling to missions as a teenager, and as a young man, he helped lead a spiritual revival on his university campus and his home village.

Anyanime’s career experiences include leadership within multiple businesses and ministries including the Mennonite Church, House of Favour Fellowship, Shell Petroleum, the Petroleum Industry Christian Fellowship, LeaderSource International, and RightNOW Media.

Anyanime founded Generous Springs in 2021. This ministry is born out of the deep passion of his heart to build and unleash generous disciples of Jesus Christ who will provide leadership throughout the various spheres of life: family, community, church, schools, organizations, and nations.

Anyanime wants to heal the scarcity mindset of Nigerian culture and lead others from a heart of generosity. Generous Springs trains leaders and churches on, “Whole Life Generosity”: the antidote to the false Prosperity Gospel which corrupts and plagues the Nigerian Church and robbing us of the True Gospel of Jesus Christ and prevents the healthy expansion of the Kingdom of God.

He is a perennial teacher in Building Healthy Leaders, Building Healthy Churches, Building Healthy Families, the secret to financial freedom and the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Emma also worked in the secular financial world as a banker. His professional banking experience spans over two decades of meritorious service and innovation until his voluntary retirement to take on pastoral and missionary service for the Gospel of Christ. Emma has a disposition for innovative solution proffering. One of his initiatives was to solve the problem that candidates face in Nigeria while obtaining educational forms from examination bodies like WAEC (West African Examination Council) and JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board). From this solution to domicile form obtainment in his bank, his organization became a monopolist in this, providing efficient and courteous services to the benefit of both candidates and the examination bodies. In more than a decade, his bank monopolized this serendipitous opportunity to maximize profitability.

Emma lives in Owerri, the Imo State capital in Nigeria. He married as a believer in 1995 and is blessed with a son and two daughters who are twins. He has travelled to to many parts of Nigeria , Africa , India and south East Asia .
