Africa is the second largest continent in the world, in land mass and population. Over one billion people live on the continent. The Gospel has spread rapidly across Africa, and some nations even have majority Christian populations. Nonetheless, tribal and animistic religions still abound, and the church struggles with syncretism. Much of the ministry of AFCI in Africa and the Middle East is focused on training of Christian pastors and leaders, so they can effectively lead their churches and denominations in full understanding of biblical truth.
