Mission & Strategic Plan of Action

African Ministries exists to support districts, pastors, local churches, and leaders in the task of making Christlike disciples among African groups in the U.S. and Canada. Here’s our strategic plan of action:

  • Establish a prayer system every two weeks with the strategy committee members.
  • Develop a prayer system every month with all the African pastors.
  • Encourage a pulpit exchange among the African pastors.
  • Offer training in pastoral care for the African pastors.
  • Pray for openings in new areas to start African congregations.
  • Conduct seminars and equip the congregations for evangelism and discipleship.
  • Celebrate a national African conference for pastors and lay leaders.
