Our Team

The Africa’s Hope team is made up of individuals who are passionate about advancing God’s mission in Africa. We have individuals working in the USA as well as partners who work across the continent. We all have a shared vision for a redeemed and transformed Africa.

Our desire is to partner in God’s mission by shaping a new generation of leaders for the cause of Christ in Africa and beyond. Our prayer is for societies to be shaken by servant

leaders who proclaim the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.'”

Matthew 28:18-20
