Matthew 28 Ministries, Inc., founded in June 2006, is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity organisation that seeks to equip women in Africa to become effective disciple-maker for the kingdom of God.
Our Mission is to educate and train women in Africa for the work of ministry and to help them grow into Christ-likeness. Our Vision is to see these trained and equipped women transforming their communities by serving in the local church and other ministry agencies by making disciples. Women constitute over seventy percent of the African Church; thus, to equip and mobilize women to become disciple-makers is to reach Africa for Christ.
Is to better equip women leadership with theological education and with the practical training that will enable them to be more effective in ministry. Our aim is also to train men so that they may learn to serve God side by side with women with fairness in treatment and equality in opportunities for ministry services. This philosophy is based on the Scripture that God created man and woman in His image and gave them a joint command to have dominion over His creation. In addition, Scripture shows that Jesus Christ treated women fairly and with dignity; He taught them, let them follow Him and serve Him, and gave them opportunities to serve others. Thus, we seek to train not only women but also men in their understanding so they can fully partner with women to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission.
Matthew 28 Ministries is committed to Teaching for knowledge of Christ; Training for skills of effectiveness; Empowering for self-confidence in Christ; Equipping for discovering God-given gifts and utilizing them fully.
