Receive Christian greetings from Anglican Missions Africa (AMA). A ministry committed to working with and through the Anglican Church in promoting wholesome living as the DNA for Christian witness and soul-winning in Africa. The vision for AMA is to nurture a Healthy and Sustainable Church on the Continent of Africa and beyond.
To nurture a healthy and sustainable church in Africa.
To equip, Empower and Release Christian leaders as agents of both spiritual and social change within their context and sphere of influence
Going by last census 2019 conducted in Kenya, statistics clearly show that Africa is a young continent. Out of a population of 47 million people, 35 Million are below 35 years, which is 75% of the entire population. The scenario is the same across Africa. This is both a great opportunity for the Church and if not handled well, it posses a challenge.
Informed by this reality, AMA has developed a clear strategy of evangelizing children, youth and young adults right from primary schools to universities by showing Jesus Film and introducing Bible clubs to those coming to the faith.
This shall be achieved in partnership with Scripture Union, Kenya Students Christian Fellowship (KSCF) and Fellowship of Christian Unions (FOCUS). This is a continental program with a pilot program in Kenya.
Healthy Church Capacity Building Program is a course for both the Ordained and the Lay Leadership of the church. The course offers skills and knowledge on how to run and manage a healthy growing Church that is sensitive to emerging issues that are negatively impacting the church. It helps in developing a contextual response to those issues and at the same time. The ground has tilted, the Church is in turmoil all over the world. It is caught up in divergence views, competing voices, both theological and humanistic debates that have increasingly left it at crossroads. The liberals and conservatives theologians are battling it out in the board rooms, leaving each other wounded both at heart and emotions. And yet the most affected people are the faithful either becoming disillusioned about Christian faith, or migrating to other Church or finding comfort in other forms of spiritualties. There are billions of people today though “Christians” no longer find a reason to attend Church or be associated with Christianity.
Although Africa is rapidly urbanizing and having a massive impact on both demographics and sociological change among African people, the church has remained traditional in her approach to ministry. As such, the church began to lose the ground and particularly the youth who are increasingly becoming de-churched and un-churched. Over the years, the urban church has been actively reaching out to the rural areas without tangible plans to embrace the reality of rural-urban movements. The urban church has also failed to tap into emerging global trends that seem to be both transcultural and driven by technology and social media. These transcultural and technological trends have a significant impact on the mission of the church, depending on how the church responds. What the church does not appreciate is that urbanization trends are pulling millions of people around the world from rural-upcountry villages to towns and cities every year around the world.
