Outreach & Evangelism

We long to let all Africa's people know that they can have life, in all it’s fullness, for comfort rather than fear of breaking taboos and working to earn favour in the eyes of their gods.

At the heart of all we do

It’s no surprise that with our desire to reach the unreached with the gospel, much of our work involves outreach & evangelism. Methods vary from people group to ministry area, but sharing the good news of Jesus is at the heart of all we do. The way we reach out to women on an Indian Ocean island might be different to the way we seek to evangelise young Samburu men in rural Kenya but our vision remains the same; to see people turning to Jesus for their salvation.

outreachAndEvangelism

All in Africa need to know the freedom there is in Jesus, including those caught up in witchcraft, ancestor worship & animism, as well as those who are adhering to other major world religions. We long to let all Africa’s people know that they can have life, in all it’s fullness, for comfort rather than fear of breaking taboos and working to earn favour in the eyes of their gods. We long to tell them of the joy there is to be found in Christ, and the redemption that he offers.

“We long to let all Africa’s people know that they can have life, in all it’s fullness, for comfort rather than fear of breaking taboos and working to earn favour in the eyes of their gods.”

To do this, people who are passionate and eager to share Jesus, need to go to those who have never heard. This may mean going to some of the world’s hardest to reach places, physically and spiritually but can also mean sharing hope where there is none. Could you be part of this work?
