Welcome to the Africa Middle Field. Our field covers the Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo Brazzaville, Cameroon, São Tome / Principe, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Madagascar, and Reunion. Other target countries include Mauritius, Seychelles, and the Central African Republic. The field is relatively young, starting in 1996. There are now 231 organized churches, 286 preaching points and over 50,000 members, six phase one districts and three official pioneer areas, We are in the process of creating more pioneer areas. We praise God for the men and women, both indigenous and missionaries, who have sacrificially given their lives in obedience to the great commission. We rejoice that the Lord Jesus Christ has sent us to minister in these areas of the globe to make disciples for Him.
