AFRICA – Growing Church

Focus in Africa

GZB supports churches in becoming a strong faith community, that is a blessing for the people around her.
The churches in Africa have grown rapidly over the last century. The boldness and strong confidence in faith of our African brothers and sisters are an example to us. But the rapid growth of Christianity also brings problems alongside. There is a huge lack of pastors for the growing number of congregations. Mission workers are supporting churches in Africa – also without its own pastor - to become strong Gospel-centred church communities, both on Sunday and during the week.
