S-123. God’s Mission for Africa


Mauro Guillen claims that by 2030, sub-Saharan Africa will be the birthplace of the next industrial revolution. (2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything, 2020) Why? And How so? It is the right time for you to pay attention more to the African continent.

Under this topic, we will think of Africa in mainly two areas: (1) How much do we know about Africa? (2) What God is doing in Africa, and for Africa?

By the end of the workshop, we hope that attendants may increase their interest in Africa, gain basic understanding about Africa, and may have a vision to be co-workers to serve God’s mission in Africa.
