That all countries in the Girls’ Brigade Africa Fellowship will be equal partners and shall not neglect to network and meet together to share in each other’s strengths and weaknesses, using their varied gifts and cultures for common good to be able to grow to full maturity in Christ. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Dear GB Friends,
Welcome to GB Africa Fellowship. The Girls’ Brigade is represented in 12 countries on the African continent with a membership of almost 30 000. Africa is full of diversity in culture and ministries which makes it a unique continent.
There are a lot of challenges that the Christian family faces throughout the continent of Africa. This calls for the need to develop a generation of Spiritually strong citizens and Prayer Warriors. In the Girls’ Brigade Africa Fellowship, we have a passion to nurture our girls to be able to stand up as Women and Leaders of tomorrow with strong Christian and Social foundations.
Wherever you are in Africa, the Girls’ Brigade is for you if you care about the future of our beautiful continent. We aim to develop a holistic girl with a four – square programme covering, Spritual, Physical, Social and Education.
The current leadership of the fellowship was ushered into office in August, 2008 in Abuja, Nigeria. It is an honour and a challenge for me to lead the fellowship and pray that together, we can accomplish the aim of the organisation of helping the young people to know Christ and find true enrichment of life.
Isaiah 45 vs 2- 3 says:
“I will go before you and will level the mountains. I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you riches stored/hidden in secret places, so that you may know that I an the Lord”.
We claim this promise for Africa as we strive to heed his call in this ministry.
Pasellah P. Penny, International Vice President, Africa
