Today, there are more Christians in Africa than on any other continent. By 2050, there will still be more followers of Christ in Africa than on the next two continents combined.
If these numbers translate into a significant mission force to complete the Great Commission in this century, then mobilizing African mission would require urgent and effective transformation. Transformation implies a renewed vision and imagination, the reformation and retooling of the entire process of mobilizing mission itself, and the end product to profoundly change the church and the world. This means rethinking our theology and practice of mission for the global, transnational, and multinational communities of the 21st century.
The impact of the COVID – 19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian war on mission and mission mobilization in and from Africa calls for deeper mission reflection. How can the African mission differentiate itself by taking the lead? What is our creative and innovative edge that can help address the challenges facing African and global missions? What quality of mission will African Christianity leave to the world in 2030 and 2050? What skills, capacities and training do African mobilizers need? What should our mobilization priorities be in the next 10 years? What do we need to do now to be the most effective, innovative and productive mobilizing force?
SEND AFRICA NETWORK (SAN) believes that God has raised His church in Africa and among people of African descent to be a blessing to all the nations of the world in line with the promise of God to Abraham (Genesis 12). Africa has enriched the nations of the world through coercion, force, exploitation, migration etc. Through it all, Africa has become the recipient of God’s grace and the bearers of His grace to the nations of the world. It is in this context that SEND AFRICA is organizing the SAN 2022 Summit.
The SAN 2022 Summit is about going deep and thinking long-term, dealing with the hard questions, and seeking transformation of mission mobilization in the wisdom, power, and enablement of the Holy Spirit.
It will be held November 2-3, 2022, in Accra, Ghana. Participants should plan to arrive on November 1 and depart on November 4.
Summit Fees are as follows:
- International Participants $ 250 (2 sharing room. Includes airport pickup and drop off)
- Ghana Residential GHC 2,000 (2 sharing room)
- Non-Residential GHC 1,000
