According to his biography on Bahamas Faith Ministries (BFM), he served as a business consultant to governments, Fortune 500 companies and corporations where he addressed critical issues “affecting every aspect of human development”.
In 1998, he became the Bahamas’ youngest ever recipient of the Queen’s Birthday Honours of the Order of The British Empire (OBE) Award which he received from Queen Elizabeth of England.

Dr Munroe frequently appeared at Christian events before mass audiences where he emphasised the Kingdom of God and his belief that the whole Bible revolved around that kingdom. He appeared alongside some of the most prominent preachers in the evangelical community, including Bishop TD Jakes, Bishop Eddie Long and Pastor Benny Hinn.
