Equipping African Church Leaders

Our desire is to find national leaders and build movements of freedom and intimacy with Christ, in every country, through equipping churches to disciple believers, who become multiplying disciples.  No ministry can grow without spirit-filled direction. We are so proud of our current leaders and are trusting God for at least one key leader in every country of Africa!
