Vision Africa’s mission is to share God’s love throughout the African continent. This love is expressed through a ministry that seeks to heal body, mind and soul. Vision Africa builds the capacity of native Africans to solve the problems of their own communities. Our aim is to create a thriving native ministry that will provide needed outreach to people in all countries of the world’s second largest continent.
Over 100 Medical Outreach Events
Helping the African people heal body, mind, and soul through medical missions has been an integral part of Vision Africa since inception. It is estimated that more than 500,000 Africans have received free medical treatment through Vision Africa, and over half a million dollars in donated medicines have been distributed during our medical outreach.
Vision Africa Radio
Love 104.1 FM
In 2005, Vision Africa founded the first independent community radio station of its kind in Nigeria. LOVE 104.1 FM now brings news, entertainment, education and inspiration to the African people 24 hours each day. The radio station has a current range to reach an estimated population of more than 20 million people in the Niger Delta region. Upgraded equipment, ongoing American expertise and support, and linkage of the station’s power supply to the city’s power grid ensures a strong signal, uninterrupted broadcasting, and invaluable programming for all who tune in.
Leadership Training & Education
Students, Community Leaders, Youth, Political Leaders; Bibles; and Orphanage Partnerships
Vision Africa responds to the social, economic, political, and cultural needs of the African people by preparing leaders to make effective contributions toward the development of Africa. Vision Africa has been involved or in charge of countless conferences, conventions, seminars, and workshops educating leaders and equipping them to improve their communities. These include: Student Outreach, Seminars and Workshops for Church Leaders; Conventions for Youth; and Workshops for political and non-political leaders. Bibles are supplied each summer for newly ordained pastors, deacons, and deaconesses.
In addition to these educational enterprises, Vision Africa brings connection and support to several orphanages. Drawn to the needs of many children who have lost their parents, often due to HIV/AIDS, Vision Africa volunteers bring the loving touch of support. They also provide physical aid through donated food, milk, clothing, bedding and furnishings.
126 New Churches Planted
Vision Africa’s carefully structured process for planting churches has reaped tremendous results. First, community leaders recommend outstanding individuals as future pastors, whom Vision Africa then trains. A neighboring church is chosen to plan, mentor, and support each pastor and his/her new congregation; Vision Africa opens each new church with a revival and free medical mission. It costs $5000 to plant a church because Vision Africa churches are created by indigenous people and become self-sustaining in six months. Many of our earliest planted churches are planting churches of their own.
