WELCOME TO AFRICAN ENTERPRISE
Evangelising the cities of Africa, through word and deed, in partnership with the Church.
The History Of African Enterprise
African Enterprise is a Pan-African evangelistic organization that exists to evangelise the cities of Africa in word and deed, in partnership with the church.
It was founded in 1961 by South African evangelist Michael Cassidy who, as a young man, sensed the Lord calling him to city-evangelism in Africa. After graduating from Fuller Theological Seminary in 1963, Michael returned to South Africa with a small team and his work began. They started with the first citywide mission in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and from there the work expanded slowly across the continent. A second team was established in Uganda in 1971 under the leadership of Bishop Festo Kivengere.
AE has grown in reach and impact through the years. Today AE has teams in eleven African countries: Ghana, Uganda, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Ethiopia and Zambia. It currently reaches more than one million people annually through its proclamation evangelism and community transformation programmes.
