AFnet brings renewed hope to the people of Africa
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.
What others are saying
Thanks to the support of our partner churches and organisations, AFnet is able to contribute to the schooling and clothing of orphans affected by the AIDS pandemic in Africa. Listen as these partners tell you about their experience.
Founded in 1979, ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising and board governance.

This year Christa and I will pass the 35-year milestone in our service with AFnet. And so, reflecting back upon the many places that we’ve lived and worked, we were amazed at how far and wide we’ve actually also traveled in this time. Starting out on our journey back then, we could not have imagined where following Jesus would take us. In hindsight, and in spite of many difficulties and struggles along the way, it’s been a journey that we’ve enjoyed.
Years ago, while traveling with a board member around southern Africa, we crossed the border from Zimbabwe, into Zambia. Stopping by a remote village along the road for my guests to get a feel of the remoteness and lifestyle of people so far away from any form of Western civilization, we quickly were surrounded by children, who seemed to swarm in from every direction. Of course, they all had their hands out for something, which we quickly filled. I always travel with lots of goodies for just such occasions.
This principle was drilled into me during my own preparation for ministry. Therefore, training and equipping Christian Leadership, obviously has been part of the chore pillars of our Mission focus and strategy from the beginning. And so, as we look back over the past three decades of active engagement, we find fulfillment in the knowledge that through our efforts, AFnet has engaged at some level of training, directly or indirectly impacting the lives of tens of thousands of Church and active Christian Laity.
