As a young South African man, just 21 years old, Michael Cassidy had a heart for his people and felt the Lord calling him to city-evangelism in Africa. During the summer of 1961, he set out on an exploratory visit to 31 major cities of Africa, a trip in which God’s vision for Michael became clear. On a long walk on the beach, Michael drew an outline of Africa in the sand and wrote “claimed for Christ” inside it. His experience is recounted in the book African Harvest: “He wrote in his diary; ‘I asked God for 50 years of ministry in Africa.’”
African Enterprise has been evangelising the cities of Africa through mission, in WORD and DEED, in partnership with local churches for over 50 years! We’ve only just begun…
Our passion to proclaim the Gospel is carried out primarily through evangelistic outreaches, or ‘missions’ , in the major cities of Africa. We believe that all people – from street children to presidents – need to hear and be changed by the Gospel!
We are team based – seeking to form strategic partnerships and alliances
We are committed to reaching every strata of society holistically
We seek to bring peace where there is conflict
We are committed to the authority of scripture and adhere to the Lausanne Covenant statement of faith
African Enterprise - What We Do
African Enterprise desires to bring peace to where there is conflict. We’ve been working to bring peace in South Sudan since the violent outbreaks began in 2013. We’re currently working with Parliamentarians in South Sudan to bring reconciliation to government leaders. Peace and Reconciliation workshops are held for grass-roots and church leaders to teach those impacted by the violence how to forgive and come together as a community.
Poor Leadership is a major issue in Africa. We believe that the best thing a leader can do is submit to Christ and lead with godliness and humility. During our missions, we actively engage with leaders at every level of society. From presidents to local chiefs! Communities and nations have been impacted by our work!
Demonstrating Christ’s love in action is a vital part of bringing people to the knowledge of Christ. All AE’s mission outreach is complimented by a community development project. We also have long-term community development projects around Africa. These projects bring hope and healing to those who need it most. From teaching marketable skills to former prostitutes to building toilets in the slums. The impact is truly inspirational. Click below to find out how you can be involved!
