Equipping, Empowering, Releasing

Message From The African Director and CEO

The Rev. Canon Captain Richard
W. Mayabi Africa Director & CEO

Am delighted to share with you what God has accomplished through our ministry in the year 2021.
The theme for the year was; FOLLOWING GOD’S LEADING.
The work of missionary undertaking has never been easy at any given time in history. Isaiah 6: 8 “whom shall I send and who will go for us” is both calling and a challenge at the same time.
God is always seeking men and women willing to step out into missions with a sacrificial heart. The calling and challenge in Isaiah is relevant and even more challenging as it was even then.
The challenge of Modernity and Materialism: The current church is faced with the challenge of modernity and quest for material acquisition as the ultimate of self-actualization. While modernity and material things are not evil, the reality is that the
missionary enterprise has been crucified at the altar of these two phenomenon’s leaving the church with traditional ministry of maintenance and institutionalism. The ultimate price has been adopting professional and business approach to ministry hence eroding the very essence the church exists.
Misconception of evangelism: One of the most misunderstood concepts in the church is “Evangelism “It is important to note that evangelism has been regarded as inferior to any other calling and ministries in the church. Ephesians 4: 11 Paul writes that Christ called some to be Apostles, some Prophets, some Evangelists, some Pastors and some
Teachers for equipping the saints for works of ministry. Going by Paul’s chronological order. Those called into the office and ministry of Evangelists are pegged third in the order. My presupposition however is that all gifts are equal and no one can claim to be superior to another. Because of lack of recognition and looked down upon as inferior,
including lack of structural support. Many evangelists have either quit ministry or translated themselves into pastors.
It is important to underscore that Evangelism is primarily the ministry that unlocks doors to Christian conversion. Evangelists are by calling pioneers and church planters. They champion the course of Christianity as heralds of the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Reason for existence for Missions Anglicanes Afrique: It is for this reason we believe that the first responsibility of any growing church is to raise evangelists as carriers and witnesses of Christian faith wherever they go. A growing Church invests in people the human resource for God’s kingdom. In the year 2021, through our Healthy church
course, WE mobilized and trained over 1600 both clergy and Evangelists for primary evangelism and church planting. To this effect, over 120 new churches were planted and many cell groups established, including evangelization and conversion of teenagers in schools.
Strategy of implementation: The point of entry in every Diocese is Healthy Church capacity building program, a mission training course targeting clergy and laity. The emphasis of the training is on Evangelism, discipleship and church planting. We then offer one hundred seater tent to a diocese that is used rotationally to plant Churches in
various parts of the Diocese. When a Diocese plants more than five Churches, Missions Anglicanes Afrique contributes roofing iron sheets to support the newly planted churches. We glorify God because this strategy has been very successful as you will read in the ministry report from Mission Coordinator.
Growth of Missions Anglicanes Afrique: Since its inception in 2019, we have grown both in Ministry and in staffing, currently we have three full time staff working across the region.
