The challenge of our ministry in Africa began in 1833 when the predecessor of the United Church Board for World Ministries sent its first missionaries to South Africa. The Division of Overseas Ministries dates its mission to 1855 when one of its predecessors sent a freed slave to Liberia. From those early beginnings, the Africa office of Global Ministries today is involved in mission, relief, development and justice work in 14 countries. The goals of partnership with Africans are:Strengthening our partnership in missionDeveloping and sharing spiritual and material giftsAssisting in health, education and leadership developmentPromoting mutual understanding and appreciationStanding in solidarity with victims of oppressionSupporting new church establishment and evangelismIn any age, the church is called to be faithful to the Gospel. In the 2000s and beyond, the church in North America will be challenged by its partners in Africa to new levels of faithfulness.
