23 AUGUST ENG 2019

AFM Colleague,

THE AFM INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: A REPORT FROM KENYA

The 2019 Triennial International Conference of the AFM is currently taking place in Nairobi, Kenya from the 19th to the 24th of August. Delegates from 32 countries in the world where the AFM is represented, are in attendance. The conference is held at the Kenyatta University, Amphitheatre with the theme of: Missional Church Discipling the Nations.

In a missional church, all members are called to be “missionaries”. The missional church is a community of God’s people that defines itself and organizes its life around its real purpose – that of being an agent of God’s mission to the world. I had the opportunity to present a workshop on Missional Church and would like to encourage you to download the presentation here:

Our General Secretary, Dr Henri Weideman also delivered a sermon on the difference between the old and the new paradigm of missions. He emphasised that being a missional church implies that every member is sent and should live the life of a missionary.

We thank you for keeping the AFM International in your prayers.

Blessings!
Past. M.G. Mahlobo
