Zimbabwe continues to struggle. Forty years after gaining independence, conditions are not improved. Economic hardship, disease, drought have made their impact on this beautiful country. Despite the difficulties and challenges, there is opportunity for the Church to embody and represent the love of Christ. A great awakening may be on the horizon. The Allens, in partnership with the General Council of the Assemblies of God Zimbabwe and USA churches and individuals, will follow a strategic plan toward an increasingly redeemed and transformed Zimbabwe. A three-pronged approach to fulfill the mission of God in Zimbabwe is being employed.
Evangelizing: Plant churches
The GCAOGZ has 120 congregations for a population exceeding 14 million. An effective tool for reaching the nation with the Good News of Jesus Christ is planting new churches. A goal of planting new churches is reached through strategic partnerships between the GCAOGZ, US churches and individuals and missionaries on the ground. Strategically targeted communities are the focus of intentional church plants with significant investment.
Educating: Train leaders
No leaders, no progress toward national church goals. Included in the strategic plan is the education and training of pastors and church leaders, augmented by cradle-to-grave discipleship.
Engage in compassionate ministries – Reaching out to the unreached, disenfranchised and rejected. People whom the general population has forgotten and neglected need the life-giving presence of Jesus Christ. Empowering local churches to modify their evangelistic efforts to reach the marginalized is a strategic focus.
Simply put, missions is taking the good news of life through Jesus Christ to ethnic groups, cultures and countries beyond our homeland. We use whatever means are available to reach as many people as possible with this life-transforming message (1 Corinthians 9:22).
