Africa Speaks sprouted in 2018 as an informal network of publishing professionals from around the globe united in a common goal: to establish a viable and flourishing Christian publishing industry in Africa and grow into a thriving professional network. We are driven by our core belief that a strong publishing industry will enable the African Christian community to share their beliefs, ideas, and works within the continent and the world. In doing so, we can spread God’s message to new audiences.
We have come together as an informal, international network of professionals committed to a flourishing Christian publishing industry in Africa.
We thank God for his gift of the written word. We believe publishing—in its broadest sense—is a powerful tool to give voice to the heart and hope of Africa.
We believe a flourishing Christian publishing industry in Africa is an important component of fulfilling the mission of God and will benefit the people of Africa and the whole world.
We believe in the strategic role of publishing as a means of transforming lives, nurturing the church, influencing society, and shaping culture with biblical truth and values.
We acknowledge that we are not keeping pace with the need for excellent, contextual Christian content to serve the African continent’s growing church and to provide hungry readers with a message of hope and Good News. For us, it can no longer be “business as usual.”
