Uchenna D. Anyanwu, Ph.D.
Associate Director for Diaspora Ministry & Intercultural Engagement

Uchenna studied building and structural engineering at Ahmadu Bello University (Zaria, Nigeria) and worked as a construction engineer in northern Nigeria before God called him to cross-cultural ministry with Calvary Ministries (CAPRO). He and his spouse, Dolapo, served for 15 years in a variety of cross-cultural contexts in West and North Africa before moving to the US for further studies.

He earned Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in World Missions and Evangelism degrees from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary before proceeding to Fuller Theological Seminary, where he obtained a Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies. Uchenna’s doctoral research focused on peacebuilding-contextual theology in a context of acute violence. His dissertation was published by Pickwick Publications in 2022 under the American Society of Missiology (ASM) Monograph Series with the title Pathways to Peacebuilding: Staurocentric Theology in Nigeria’s Context of Acute Violence. Uchenna also holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Gordon-Conwell.

In his role with Frontier Fellowship, Uchenna partners with our other mobilizers to build bridges between Christians and Muslims in the US. He will also mobilize congregations to partner with indigenous peoples proclaiming the Good News on the frontier in the Sahel region of Africa.

Uchenna is an ordained minister in the Anglican Church. He enjoys Asian foods and loves evening walks with Dolapo. They have two sons.
