MANI 2016 (in Addis) inspires African leaders

The Movement of African National Initiatives (MANI) has just held its strategic consultation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This event is held every five years and aims to celebrate what God is doing in and through the African Church. Faith2Share partners MANI as it inspires, challenges and equips mission leaders across the continent of Africa for leadership in contemporary mission.

Faith2Share international director Mark Oxbrow, who was in Addis for the event, reports:

"Bring together 500 mission church leaders from 51 countries across Africa and beyond. Add five inspirational leaders from Chiuna and the entrepreneurial context of Addis Ababa. Stir up with prayer and Biblical reflection. What do you get? MANI 2016."

A key theme addressed in Ethiopia between 7 to 12 March was holistic discipleship. There are now more disciples of Jesus in Africa than in Europe and North America put together. But how can they be equipped for radical Christian service. That was a key question.
