Africa Mission Trip 2015

Assemblies of God World Missions

Permission requested to use information from www.worldmissions.ag.org/

Assemblies of God World Missions represents a growing family of more than 4,000 people — 2,035 appointed missionaries, 615 missionary associates and 1,500 missionary children — scattered throughout 212 countries and territories. These dedicated men and women, along with their children, are taking the gospel to cities, urban areas and remote villages, telling a lost world that Christ loves them and came to redeem them from their sins. Together they work with more than 280,000 national pastors in six geographical regions — Africa, Asia Pacific, Eurasia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean and Northern Asia.

A word that accurately describes Assemblies of God World Missions today is “unprecedented.” The worldwide Fellowship now numbers more than 52 million members and adherents with over 275,000 churches and preaching points. The doors of opportunity to preach the gospel of Christ also are unprecedented as missionaries and national believers minister to those who have never heard.

One reaps what one plants! For more than a decade, our 300 Gideon’s Army-like missionaries have prayed and worked for AN INCREASINGLY REDEEMED AFRICA! Church leaders embraced this vision of increased harvest. In partnership with their dynamic churches, we have pursued evangelism, church planting and pastoral training. And God has “given the increase!”

In 1990, the Assemblies of God in Africa consisted of 2.1 million constituents in 11,800 churches in 26 countries. Today, Assemblies of God churches are found in 43 African and nearby island nations, with upward of 10 million constituents in more than 33,000 congregations!

Churches with thousands of attendees are increasingly common. Nearly 12,000 attend La Borne Assembly in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Several of La Borne’s 22 daughter churches also count attendees in the thousands. In March 2002, City Christian Center in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, laid the cornerstone of a nine-story, 4,000-seat church facility. In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the Assemblies of God Worship Center, which has grown to 12,000 attendees in just six years, broke ground for an 8,000-seat sanctuary in May. Nairobi’s Buru-Buru Assembly will soon occupy its new 4,000-seat, three-story edifice.

At Calvary Temple in Lomé, Togo, 3,000 adults plus children worship in a four-story, city-center church and have helped plant 70 other churches in the city. Central Assembly in Koudougou, Burkina Faso, also 3,000 strong, has planted 24 other churches in the city. Their total attendance is now 11,000! Adjamé Assembly, the first Assemblies of God church in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, counts 4,000 members and has helped launch 45 thriving Abidjan churches. Yopougon Assembly near Abidjan began through a tent crusade in 1988. Today, 3,000 Ivorien believers worship in a three-story building. It has started a dozen daughter churches, and more are planned!

Africa’s increase includes recently organized national churches in Niger, Equatorial Guinea, Mali, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Swaziland, Namibia, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Central African Republic, Burundi and Rwanda. Born in 1993, the Rwanda Pentecostal Assemblies of God celebrated its first General Council, ordination and Bible school graduation in February. With 92 congregations already, this nascent church has set its sights on starting many more! It too has embraced the vision of AN INCREASINGLY REDEEMED AFRICA! No wonder church growth observers are saying, “Look out, the Africans are coming!” And they are — to every region of Africa and far beyond!
