ASSEMBLIES OF GOD - AFRICA

At the end of the 20th century, African church leaders initiated efforts that fully embraced the Decade of Harvest challenge to evangelize the lost and plant churches. At that time, 2.1 million people from 28 countries worshipped each week in 11,800 churches. African church leaders called for nation-wide prayer vigils and greater evangelism, both within their own nations and in neighboring countries. Unprecedented growth followed.

Today, over 17 million believers worship in Assemblies of God fraternal churches, served by 71,445 preaching points and churches and almost 76,000 pastors and lay ministers. God is truly moving on the continent of Africa. Yet much work remains to be done!

Missionaries

When we look across the continent of Africa, we see incredible opportunity and open doors. As Assemblies of God missionaries sent from the USA, we pioneer in areas where the church has not been established, we nurture national churches where the church is in its infancy, and we partner with powerful national churches where growth and maturing has come. Together, we work for an increasingly redeemed Africa. From the Islamic Sahel of the north, to the fertile fields of the south, we are believing that God will allow us to continue to work in his harvest fields for a hope-filled destiny for the African church. Our strong belief is that history has not yet seen the role of the African church fully realized.

For An Increasingly Redeemed and Transformed Africa

Planting, Nurturing, and Partnering with National Churches In Africa

Our Mission is clear.

Go Into All the World and Make disciples of All Nations

Since its inception, the Assemblies of God has been about reaching the world for Jesus because…

Lostness is the only human condition that separates us from God

Through our work on the continent, we meet human needs because humanity dignity demands it. Everyone is created in the image of God. We try as best we can to hold the tension between meeting the human need and keeping the spiritual needs of man, and our biblical mandate to make disciples of all nations, first and foremost.

Our team is our greatest asset.

We are missionaries, sent from a national church, to plant, nurture and partner with national churches.

The Lord of the harvest still calls

And more missionaries are needed.

As of today, we have over a dozen countries that with no AGWM missionary presence.

The needs are great, but the opportunity is even greater. We need…

  • LiveDead Team members, working with our unreached people groups initiatives.
  • Trainers: Bible school teachers at all levels are needed.
  • Missionary church planters in Urban Areas
  • Kids workers
  • Water wells
  • And many more…
