To God Be the Glory
Crossway is pleased to announce that our recent fundraising campaign for the book God’s Design for the Church in Africa has been completed. We give thanks to God for his provision and for the participation of generous donors who helped us to raise $125,000 for the distribution and translation of Conrad Mbewe’s book to pastors and ministry leaders across Africa.
Plans are already underway to translate God’s Design for the Church in Africa into five of the most common trade languages spoken throughout Africa (French, Swahili, Portuguese, Amharic, and Zulu), which would make the book accessible to African church leaders across the continent.

Major news outlets in the world tend to concentrate on the economic poverty and social deprivation that characterizes much of Africa, but then many believers miss what God is doing in his church across the continent.
It is said that the number of Christians in Africa at the beginning of the twentieth century was about 9 million and that by the end of the twentieth century it was about 380 million.
Conrad Mbewe discusses what American Christians should know about the church in Africa, dispelling common misconceptions and sharing some of the big issues facing local congregations.
The church needs the light of the truth that is the glorious and biblical doctrines recovered during the Reformation.
