In the Spirit’s Power, Boldly Go!
The Decade of Pentecost theme for 2018 is “In the Spirit’s Power, Boldly Go!”
It is in keeping with the theme of the entire Decade of Pentecost, which centers on seeing God’s missionary people empowered by the Spirit to proclaim Christ in all of Africa and to the “ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
The theme takes its inspiration from the Church’s response to the Spirit in Acts 4:31:
“After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”
The early disciples not only preached in their own homelands, they boldly went to places where Christ was not known. We pray that the same will happen in the Africa AG during 2018.
According to the Joshua Project, their remain 844 unreached tribes in the 52 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean Basin. In Acts 1:8 Conferences across the continent national AG churches have committed to sending missionaries to many of these tribes. We pray that this will be the year that many African missionaries boldly go to these very precious but very lost people.
