Who We Are
ACF is an organization of African Christians in the Diaspora, who through fellowship strive to create better societies both where they reside and in the continent of Africa. ACF seeks to facilitate unity amongst African Christians of all denominations in order to sound the voice of the oppressed and persecuted in Africa, bring physical and spiritual relief and build healing bridges between Africans and the people around the world. Founded in 1977 as an outreach ministry to African Students, ACF-USA has since grown to over fifty (50) chapters located in several cities across the United States of America. We are excited to see the Lord molding together African Christians across ethnicity, countries of origin, language groups, and denominations into a harmonious team and for His glory.
Membership is open to all African Christians, as well as to all Christians who have been called to minister to Africa and Africans. The African Christian Fellowship (ACF) is dedicated to building partnerships across denominations, nations, cultures and ministries with the goal of advancing God’s purpose among the the people and nations of Africa. In the midst of the many challenges facing contemporary Africa, God is raising a standard, and raising for himself men and women who are dedicated to the simple notion that as surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the glory of the Lord shall rise in the midst of the people and nations of Africa.
ACF shall be a thriving Christian Community that models integrity, excellence, and compassion to mobilize and empower Africans worldwide to impact their generation and Africa.
