CIU alumni instrumental in European prayer breakfast

December 12, 2018

Columbia International University alumnus Dr. Raphael Anzenberger had the unique opportunity of addressing the 2018 European Prayer Breakfast held in Brussels, Belgium in December. The annual event links followers of Jesus from around the European Union in prayer and fellowship.   

Anzenberger, a native of France, is the director of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries for the French-speaking world working out of Nice, France. He is also an adjunct professor of Intercultural Studies at CIU. He earned a Doctor of Ministries degree from CIU in 2011and a Master of Divinity in 2005.

The prayer breakfast theme was, “Pursuing Both Grace and Truth in the Public Sphere: Challenges, Encouragement, Testimonies.” Joining Anzenberger on a discussion panel were: Gerti Bogdan, a politician based in Tirana, Albania; Robert Clarke, a barrister working for ADF, a Christian legal-advocacy organization in Vienna, Austria; Rachel Verheul, a medical doctor and an active leader in the Brussels House of Prayer, a worship center in Belgium.

Organizing the prayer breakfast was another CIU alumnus, Carlton Deal, who along with his wife Shannon, serve at PCC Missions in Belgium. They graduated from CIU with bachelor degrees in 1986.
