……And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
African Young Pastors (AYP) aims to bring to a common fellowship, ALL the African young pastors and christian leaders on the continent of Africa and those who are serving beyond the continent.
Apostle Paul exhorted the young pastor, Timothy, to make it his priority to train men for ministry (2 Tim. 2.1-9). The AYP seeks to facilitate the ongoing equipping of young men for long-term ministry effectiveness and a broad range of practical ministry knowledge shared by men proven in the trenches of ministry around the continent of Africa and beyond, who can provide first-hand knowledge of the “do’s and don’ts” of ministry.
To bring to a common fellowship, ALL the young pastors and christian leaders on the continent of Africa and those who are serving beyond the continent.
We hold steadfast to four values that are supported by love and define who we are:
-Transformational religious teaching
-Periodic Leadership conferences
To create a community of well equipped young pastors and christian leaders who will ignite Africa with the flame of Holy Spirit, becoming the future God’s generals.
