AIM Ministry: Church Development
As part of our vision to see Christ-centred churches among all African peoples we are committed to working with and helping to develop the African church. Recognising AIM’s own need of training, we work with the African church to develop mutually equipping resources. We are passionate about learning alongside African church leaders as together, we take advantage of training and development opportunities.
Church development work can mean being involved in fledgling churches, supporting new church leaders as they seek to be godly role models, or helping to develop discipleship methods. It can also mean providing theological education, or hosting seminars where church leaders can learn from each other, within the ever changing context of many parts of Africa.
Ultimately, we hope that our work with African churches will lead them to be centres of hope and love that will draw more people to Jesus. We pray that this work will lead to those who have yet to hear the gospel, being reached with it’s wonderful truth. If your passion is for the local church and the impact it can have across communities and across nations, will you join us?
Amos talks to Jack and Phil about the time that each of them spent serving short term in Africa. All three served in Dukana, northern Kenya among the Gabbra people. They talk about their experience and the impact it had on each of their lives.
Eddie and Rachel Andersen work in northern Kenya. They share a little about their story and how they came to be working among the Gabbra.
Jack went to serve among the Gabbra in northern Kenya. He says… “I have come away with a new heart for mission, and a burden for unreached people that need Jesus and do not yet know him. I pray with renewed energy and eagerness for missionaries in the field and the calling of new workers.”
