Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is the founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG) and the Shepherd Bushiri Ministries International. ECG Church has its head quarters in Lilongwe the capital city of Malawi and branches across the African continent.


Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is mightily used by God in prophetic, healing and deliverance ministries. His ministry is also known as the ministry of the book of Acts because of the great undeniable signs and wonders which happen in the name of Jesus. His prophecies are accurate and precise.



Prophet Shepherd Bushiri was brought up in a Christian home. He is a son of Huxley and Christina Bushiri.
His birth was mysterious and there were so many issues surrounding his birth such that after he had been safely delivered, his mother called him Shepherd, acknowledging that the Lord is her Shepherd.




Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has caught the attention of several media organisations including bloggers in the recent years largely because of the exploits he is doing across the world – that is business and ministry wise. As a platform that chronicles both the old and new generation of God’s Generals, we taught this God’s General’s series will be incomplete without this portrait.

Major 1

Shepherd Bushiri is ranked by many including reputable organisations in the U.S and elsewhere as one of the richest pastors in the world. He is also on the list of the richest people in Malawi. Reports show that Bushiri earned his tremendous fortune within a short period of fourteen years. The man of God, however, clearifies that none of what he has could come into existence by his own ability but it is purely the work of grace.

Voice of Dominion Reflection

There are many controversial things that are published about him, mostly by journalists in his home country Malawi who certainly want to earn a reputation for themselves and may be make money off the prophets popularity. Hence, we could not just call off his portrait because of what his haters have said. We took time to study his life and ministry; strengths and weaknesses as we would any other man of God and found it worth chronicling in our series.


As we have remarked in the biographical portraits of the old generation of God’s Generals, controversy is always one of their marks, especially those God used in greater measure. They are mostly hated by fellow men of God and unbelievers. Our job is not to judge or ridicule anyone but to present their lives as recorded by history clearly revealing their strength and weaknesses so that the forthcoming generation can learn. What do we say about all the horrible things that are said by others against the prophet?

  • Could this be persecution or jealousy?

  • Could this be a fulfilment of Luke 6:26?

  • Or Is it a sin for a child of God to be successful?

Well, both common sense maths and scientific research has proven that biblical figures like Abraham, Job, Joseph, Isaac, Solomon etc were not just millionaires but billionaires.

A prophet is without honour in his hometown

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri started his prophetic ministry as young as 10 while in primary school in his home country Malawi. He was less appreciated or acclaimed back there as opposed to South Africa where he is honoured both nationally and internationally even by top members of government.


Bushiri has more investments in other countries than in his home country Malawi. During a radio interview Prophet Shepherd Bushiri said that in his country he has 50% of people who loves him and 50% of the population who do not like him. This he said implied that Malawi is not a safe place for his investment. He also said that he has fewer investments in Malawi because Malawi does not have the necessary technology to support his business needs.



The prophet narrates that his birth was mysterious. Bushiri’s mother refused to accept the doctors’ recommendation to have a cesarean birth. Instead she insisted that her child would be born through the normal way. Doctors abandoned the mother and the expected child waiting for them to die. However, when they came back into the hospital room, they discovered that the mother had given birth normally. It was at that time that Christina Bushiri praised God. She said “My God is my Shepherd”; hence the son was named Shepherd Bushiri.



Prophetic Utterances

From the tender age of five years, strange things started happening to Bushiri. It is said that great light shined in Bushiri’s room. The light amazed his parents and several other strange occurrences happened. When he was eight years old, the prophet had an encounter with God. A man whom he believes was Jesus gave a small Bible to Shepherd Bushiri and told him was to swallow it in a vision. From that time, he started revealing hidden things to parents and people around.


At the age of nine God told Shepherd Bushiri that he has been called to be a prophet. Bushiri’s followers acknowledge that his prophecies are accurate and precise. His entire life even up till now is largely characterised by miracles with the most recognized being the physical apparition of angels in a live service that was caught by live cameras. Several people have recorded such miracles live through the Prophetic Live TV channel and on the church ground with their smart phones.
