ANGAZA is a one year intensive and life transforming residential Mission School for college graduates.
The objective of ANGAZA is to nurture and develop the gifts and talents of the participants into ministry skills through Discipleship-Missions Training, Mentorship, Practical Ministry Experience, and Cross-Cultural field experience, while helping them identify their specific role in God’s global mission enterprise. Through ANGAZA we aim to raise a dynamic movement of young people that are prepared in Ministry Skills, Biblical Knowledge, and Character Development to serve God in Missions using their careers, talents and gifts in response to the Lord’s mandate to ”pray to the Lord of the harvest that He will send out laborers into His harvest.” (Matt 9:37-38). The trainers in ANGAZA are drawn from different fields of practice including Discipleship/Mission Leaders, Professionals, Bible School Lecturers, and godly brethren who are making a difference for the Kingdom in their spheres.
With over 2.5 billion people in the world waiting to hear the gospel and experience Christ, we believe this is Africa’s opportune time to arise and be a blessing to the nations through the gospel.
