Africa

Helping the least reached people groups across Africa meet, know and follow Jesus
Sub-Saharan Africa is populated by 954 million people and is young, diverse and resource rich. Many Christians reside in Africa, but religions such as Islam are prominent and growing in popularity, and many thousands of people are steeped in animism, worshiping natural objects of phenomena. There are 900 least-reached people groups on the continent that know little or nothing about Jesus' saving grace.

SenSahel Initiative

Senegal

There are over 6 million Wolof people in Senegal and this people group has a long history of being resistant to the gospel. There may be as few as 100 known believers among the Wolof. Even though the Wolof are resistant to the message of the gospel, they are still one of the people groups for whom Christ died. We must do everything possible to see that these people hear the good news of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Goal
To see a gospel movement established within this very tough-to-reach people group.

Fulbe Initiative

Nigeria/Cameroon, Africa

There are over 38 million Fulbe people living in West Africa and Central Africa. For centuries, these people have been followers of Islam but the tide is turning. There is an increasing openness to the gospel among the Fulbe in Nigeria and Cameroon. The few Jesus followers in this massive people group need our help to train up leaders who will share the gospel, make disciples and grow a gospel movement.

Goals

  • Train existing leaders in church multiplication principles and strategies
  • Provide Christ-followers with audio and written Bibles
  • Work in partnership with Christian leaders to identify and address community development issues, which will enhance the spread of the gospel
  • Recruit medical missionaries who will assist in mobile medical teams

6º Initiative

Togo/Benin, West Africa

The 6º Initiative is a church planting movement focused on the unreached people groups just north of the equator in West Africa. The Sixth Degree spans across the balmy African coast that has been impacted most by voodoo and its exportation of precious human life through the slave trade.

We, as Converge missionaries, are partnering with national leaders to plant churches in the least-reached cities of the region. A concentrated church-planting movement within these culturally significant cities is serving as a launch pad for ministry into smaller communities.
