Courageous CallingAfricans Leading the Way in the Great Commission
The African Church – growing, vibrant, and confident in the Gospel – has tremendous untapped potential to reach this beautiful continent and beyond.
In 1895, the church in our traditional mobilizing countries (America, England, Canada. etc.) was strong, and the church in Africa, with a few exceptions, was almost non-existent. In 2018, the tables are turned: the church has declined in our traditional mobilizing countries, and is booming in virtually all sub-Saharan African countries. Jesus Christ is building His church in Africa. And the Lord of the Harvest is calling more and more African laborers into His harvest fields.
AIM is excited to play a part in inviting, equipping, sending, training, serving, and encouraging African workers to take the gospel to the remaining unreached peoples of Africa and beyond.

Because of the complexity of mobilisation, the Hub is engaged in researching new culturally appropriate models of mission, as well as helping to build capacity within new and inexperienced African missions organisations.

On the coast of Kenya and Tanzania, the Madafu Fellowship Network serves as a constant reminder of how cross-cultural workers should conduct ourselves among the coastal unreached people groups.
The door is still open for missionaries from any nation who answer the Lord’s call. As my family and I learned serving in the Islands and the Horn, there is a wonderful strength and blessing in partnerships between foreigners and locals.
