The continent of Africa encompasses over fifty different countries making it one of the largest continents in the world in terms of numbers. The cultural diversity in Africa is as broad as the continent itself and the same can be said for the belief system.
Approximately 80% of the population of west and central Africa is living amongst unreached people groups. Idolatry, voodoo and ancestor worship are just a few of the religious practices that can be found in this particular region. Islam in North, East and West Africa has a firm foothold and is expanding. Plenty of work remains in order for the gospel to be heard in every corner of Africa.
The great task in Africa is to continue to send workers who will go into places where people are yet unreached with the Gospel. Furthermore, it is vital that the established church in the South and other parts of Africa be released and equipped to reach into Northern parts of Africa to their unreached neighbors with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
