Chinese Missions in Africa: Consultation and Action 2008

Theme: “A Call from Afar—The Challenging Task of African Evangelization”
3-8 April 2008
Nairobi, Kenya

The establishing of the Chinese Coordination Centre of World Evangelism (CCCOWE) can be traced back to the Lausanne International Congress on World Evangelization of 1974. For more than three decades, through conferences and publications, CCCOWE has been striving to be a catalyst to mobilize worldwide Chinese churches for world mission. In 1998, the first “Chinese Missions in Africa” was convened in Pretoria, South Africa.

In the past decade, the development of gospel work in Africa has been going through quite a few changes. In order to address the needs in the new missional realities of Africa, CCCOWE will convene the second mission conference in Kenya in April. It is our sincere prayer and hope that more Chinese churches around the world will learn about the pressing need and the present situation of Africa.
