Arise Africa began 1998 under the leadership of Rev. Godfrey Wanamitsa. Pastor Godfrey was a man on a mission. We began with little money and few resources, but big vision. God blessed, and today Arise Africa has over 140 employees, over 200 churches, partners from all over the world, and more projects than we can enumerate in this short letter. Through the years, the strategy has changed but the vision and mission have remained the same.
Our vision is for all people to be in Christ so that they may have life forever. We believe that God does not want anyone to perish, but that all should come to repentance. We feel the same way! Everything we do at Arise Africa - from rescuing orphans to training pastors, from starting schools to planting churches, from agricultural projects to our Bible School, from medical clinics to hut-to-hut evangelism - everything we do is driven by our vision to see all people find life in Christ.
Our mission is to preach Christ the Lord to ALL people by ALL means, allowing them to repent and receive Christ and to grow in him as they serve God and man in righteousness and in love. We are committed to the vision and are aggressive about the mission.
