New Digital Resource Provides African Perspective on Global Mission

Colorado Springs, CO -- July 31, 2020– GMI is partnering with Inserv, a GMI Associate and research ministry in South Africa, to bring an African perspective on mission to the world. While many resources provide a Western insight into ministry to Africa, almost no resources provide an African perspective on the mission endeavor from Africa.

The book, Evangelical Christian Mission: An African Perspective, was first released in 2012 in Africa and is now available globally as an eBook for the first time through GMI. The book tackles issues such as the origins of Christianity in Africa, an African perspective on the mission mandate, church mobilization, women in mission, ministry to children and many others.


"Evangelical Christian Missions: an African Perspective is written by people who are involved in African missions. It takes the questions Pastors ask and answers them with the information Pastors need to improve their congregations' mission involvement and leadership skills. It dispels many of the myths that have surrounded missions in Africa and demonstrates a host of new opportunities for Pastors and their local churches in the 21st Century. Inserv is therefore excited to present this wonderful tool to the body of Christ in Africa and the world over," Peter Vumisa, Editor and Inserv Director of Research and Mission Mobilization.


“GMI is committed to seeing voices from every part of the globe speak into what it means to be on mission in God’s Kingdom. Evangelical Christian Missions: An African Perspective is a gift to the African church as they find their own place in the global movement and it is insightful to the rest of the world as we try to come alongside the African Church,” Jon Hirst, President and CEO of GMI.


The book is 356 pages and available as a PDF, MOBI or ePUB download at the GMI store: It is also available for Amazon Kindle and the Barnes and Noble Nook.
