A Perfect Fit

Stronger Together

He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:16

African Enterprise’s Vision is ‘Transformed lives in Christ through an empowered Church’.  The ‘family of AE’ is represented by teams in twelve countries across Africa and six support teams around the globe, together with our valued donors, volunteers, prayer-partners, mission-partners and board directors in each of these countries. As one body under Christ, we are actively working to unite churches on mission in up to fifteen African cities each year, reaching over a million people and seeing tens of thousands making a commitment to follow Jesus per annum. Our duty of care to new believers involves coordinating training for pastors and volunteers and following up on new believers.

Our social action programs give practical support and hope, all of which is provided through the love of Jesus and faithfulness of his people. This is made possible through the very talented teams of experienced evangelists in Africa and supporters who are praying and giving financially to see the Great Commission fulfilled: and God glorified through Jesus.

In addition, we run development programs for vulnerable people to give them better opportunities for health, wellbeing, and to support their families. 

Each of the South African team members below are responsible for different parts of our ministry through Word and Deed, and we all work together under an AE Covenant of Partnership to ensure we do our best for churches, new believers, our supporters and one another.
