What we aim to solve

Africa is a continent of great promise but plagued by poverty, poor leadership, disease and corruption. African Enterprise brings the Gospel of Jesus Christ to bear in relevant ways to bring new hope, healing and effectiveness in Africa's citizens and leaders.

African Enterprise Stratified Evangelism

AE has several programs that use community services as vehicles for presenting the Gospel. In addition, they have programs to help churches train their leaders and continue running the community projects. A few of AE's programs are listed below: AFRICA LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE - Designed by Africans for Africans, the program is an intensive curriculum directed toward participants who are already active in their communities. Through seminars and practical workshops, students of all races and ages are equipped with a Gospel-based understanding of business and leadership principles. GHANA STREET CHILDREN'S PROJECT - This program helps get children off the streets by assigning them to a craftsman who works with them over a three-year period. During this time, the children are given both biblical and practical training, which allows them to begin a new life, both with the Christian faith and with a skill for the market place. SOWETO KAYOLE HEALTH PROJECT - This outpatient clinic meets both the spiritual and physical needs of the people living in the Soweto/Kayole slums on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. The clinic is staffed by community nurses and support staff who provide immunizations, antenatal care, first-aid, maternal care, childcare, and health education. The staff also provides daily Bible teachings, and local pastors and evangelists speak at weekly meetings. RWANDA HEALING MINISTRY - AE holds services in the Kigali Central Prison, which houses some of Rwanda's toughest criminals. Many have been known to accept Christ and confess to crimes, which resulted in smaller sentences.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To evangelize the cities of Africa through word and deed and in partnership with the church. Our goals are to meet with and develop relationships with African leaders and pastors who will then lead others into relationship with the Lord, to resource our Teams in Africa who are continually evangelizing.

We do this through connection and ministry with churches in Africa, through aid and development, through outreaches to students, doctors, teachers, lawyers, government officials.

We have the key leaders to to minister to government officials, to teachers, to doctors, to children and orchestrate effective programs through word and deed and in partnership with the church for the purpose of seeing African lives and communities come to the Lord.

We assisted government officials in Africa to carry out the first peaceful democratic election in South Africa, 1994.
Last year we witnessed over 145 government officials come to the Lord at a luncheon and saw several bible studies begin in the offices of officials.
