Every year, John E. Sagoe (Apostle and founder of NIC) releases a prophetic focus to guide us for the whole year. It is released in our prophetic crossover night on 31st of December.
Our monthly prophetic focus:
“…and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” Isaiah 10:27 (KJV)
The heart of John E. Sagoe, respectively of New International Church, is to bring the people out of any bondage in life. Just like Moses brought the Israelites out of the bondage of Egypt and took them on a journey of preparation and transformation, which ultimately led them to their promised land.
The mandate of this ministry is to help people heal from hurt and pain, from brokenness in life, from depression and to be delivered, so that they can become all that God actually wanted them to become. Once on the journey of healing and restoration, we are leading people into their calling with the power of God accompanying their gifts.
We love to create an atmosphere where the power of God can flow and His glory is made visible for His people to be set free, filled and empowered. At the same time, we have a call to speak to nations on a global level. We want to see this world changed for the better. Therefore, we are a praying church. We believe in prayer and intercession. And we do a lot of mission work, such as building children homes and schools for the less privileged as well as helping the poor. New International Church is a global movement, called to build kingdom wherever we go, imparting, training and sending out strong leaders to continue in the mission work.
The beginning of Rev Dr. John E. Sagoe can be briefly described as follows: Rev Dr. Sagoes root can be found in a strong Christian family that prayed him into the kingdom when he first refused to follow the call. In September 1989 after a dramatic encounter where his future was at stake he decided to follow Christ. In the following years he built up his faith step by step by serving in the house of God in different places and in all kinds of work like sharing translation headsets, cleaning church premises, driving shuttle service for the church etc.
In 1996 John was specially ordained and certified as an evangelist by Rev Sam K. Ankrah in Royalhouse Chapel which at that time was called IBWC (International Bible Worship Center).
Striving for excellence he went for deeper Bible studies to Cape Town South Africa to Vineyard Ministry School. He successfully concluded and received his certificate in 1997.
Besides studying Evangelist John was working as a youth ministry leader. He also worked in the area of logistics of Vineyard Worship in Johannesburg where his field gradually transformed from logistic center to solution center for many people.
Three years later in UK through a clear vision Evangelist John received God’s instruction to build a church for Him in Biel Switzerland. Shortly after that he was installed as a pastor and New International Church was founded in 2003. Only four years later Pastor John Sagoe purchased the first church building for New International Church.
In 2005 his apostolic ministry notably unfolded while touring five cities through the US. Since then he has visited many other nations around the world for the gospels sake.
In 2006 Pastor John was lead by God to organize a chain prayer for the city of Biel. In the same year he received a Doctor degree of Bethel Christian University in Detroit Michigan. Also in 2006 Pastor John was invited by the cantonal police in Bern to speak about the solution for struggles with immigrants. Before 500 police officers Pastor John stated that the church is the only solution to the problem.
In the following years the prophetic mantle on Pastor John Sagoes life got more and more evident. He publicly prophesied natural disasters, catastrophes and called for prayer and shortly after it came to pass just as he said. He pronounced blessings over people and their life never remained the same.
Parallel to that the apostolic grace increased year after year: After a powerful public prophecy to Michel Amani the minister of defense in Ivory Coast in 2009 Pastor John was invited to his private residence. There he boldly told the minister and his Wife to kneel down before him for prayer. Since then many occasions like this happened where business leaders, celebrities and politicians where receiving Pastor John in their office to receive council and blessing. As a prophet to the nations he was able to gather hundreds of pastors and leaders for prayer and got known in Switzerland through prayer conferences, while he was praying on the Swiss parliament house with around 20 other Christians. In 2005 he received a vision to organize a yearly prayer conference for Switzerland called Hour of Encounter Prayer Conference.
In Switzerland Pastor John gained recognition as an eloquent teacher revealing the mysteries of the Word of God and unveiling the Prophetic word.
As a confirmation of the fivefold anointing upon his life signs and wonders follow him wherever he goes.
Currently he is reaching out in the area of church plant to bring healing and to fortify the body of Christ worldwide, especially in Ghana, Switzerland and in the US. His prophetic school is aimed to prepare the churches in the endtime for the return of Jesus Christ. Beside that it is his heartbeat to reach the unreached and the less privileged children.
Growing up in a Christian family, Sandra Sagoe at an early stage already showed her humble heart to serve the body of Christ.
Quite early when she joined NIC she actively involved in media ministry and later became the leader of this vital department of the ministry. From there, she has helped or led almost every department that can be found in the church. The involvement in so many areas let her grow so much in wisdom that people sought her counsel and prayer more and more. In 2011 she took over the women’s ministry of the church, a vibrant movement within the movement of NIC global.
In May 2011 she finished her Bible School in Christ for the Nations Institute with excellence in Dallas Texas and received a certificate for Biblical Studies.
In November 2011 she was ordained as an Elder of New International Church.
She is the greatest supporter of Rev Dr. John Sagoe and through her loyal support he could be released to do public ministry.
In 2018 Lady Sandra Sagoe was ordained a Pastor and is preaching and catering for the headquarters of NIC in Biel, Switzerland, when her husband is travelling the world.F
