GO! Africa Training
Our world contains refugee camps with millions of people awaiting resettlement. Within such camps in Africa are many evangelical churches and ministries that have a hunger for outreach and missions. And within these are individuals who are called by God to make disciples of Christ and plant churches.
We believe the refugee camps and the resettlement process can be a vehicle for the sending out of missionaries to the countries where they will be resettled. As we provide the training, accountability and oversight to the churches and ministries already present in the camps, a new missionary force will be realized!
Our hope is to use the Swahili Evangelical Refugee Fellowship of Atlanta, USA as a base for the training of missionaries in refugee camps in Africa. We will use our 1-year GO! Training program followed by a practicum. When trainees are sent for resettlement, we will provide them with accountability and guidance as they begin ministry in their new country.
With this vision in mind, we are planning a trip for February 2021 for the purpose of developing partnerships with churches and ministries in the Nyarugusu refugee camp (Tanzania) who are willing to host our training.
The Nyarugusu refugee camp in Tanzania is one of the largest and most well-known refugee camps in our world today, with around 150,000 refugees. It is located in the province of Kigoma, Tanzania. The camp was created in 1996 after many Congolese refugees crossed into Tanzania escaping war. Many of the refugees in this camp have remained there for decades. Additionally, thousands of refugees from Burundi have entered the camp.
We hope to see African missionaries trained and equipped to make disciples and plant churches, and who are sent out through the existing avenue of refugee resettlement. Our goal is to see trained missionaries prepared to initiate evangelical ministries and churches while they are resettling into their new culture and country. The final outcome is to see a multiplication of evangelical churches around the globe planted by the emerging church leaders of Africa!
