We, the International Steering Committee, have long been committed to supporting and working in solidarity with Christians around the world to advance justice. We are increasingly interested in amplifying the voices of younger Christian leaders around the world who are providing courageous and prophetic leadership in their national contexts and finding ways to support and strengthen their efforts. This event is a global gathering of fifty Christian leaders who have been nominated by our international steering committee for their ability to continue this work.
The Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA) is a Christian umbrella organization, representing National Evangelical Fellowships in Africa. The membership also includes international Christian Non-Governmental Organizations or development and missionary agencies based in Africa. Founded in 1966, AEA’s Headquarters is in Nairobi, Kenya where it is registered as a Charitable Christian organization (society). AEA is currently comprised of 40 National Evangelical Fellowships as full members and continues to work in the remaining countries to bring churches together for a fully-fledged National Fellowship. AEA is one of the regional associations of the global evangelical movement—World Evangelical Alliance (WEA). AEA and its members join in common concern to live and proclaim the Good News of Jesus amongst all nations and peoples, seeking holiness, justice, and transformation at every level: individual, family, community, and culture.
