For more than 30 years, AFnet has worked within the continent of Africa through strategic networks and partnerships. Having seen first hand the impact our ministry has on the people of Africa, we are ever-encouraged to push forward, continuing the Great Commission set forth to us, raising up leaders, strategically planting churches, and caring for the children orphaned by AIDS, so that His work and kingdom may be multiplied on earth.

Help us to train the leadership in Africa, plant churches and prevent children from falling victim to their circumstances.

In reality, a large percentage of African church leaders have had no Bible training. People aren’t growing spiritually because of a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). In fact many are spiritually dead, because leaders with little understanding lead people with even less. In many cases
