Children Praying




At ANIM (ah-neem) we believe that God is doing an incredible work on the continent of Africa through the local church. We see Gospel transformation as the greatest hope for shalom in Africa and we are focusing on a few key areas to see this accomplished.

We envision an Africa where shalom can flourish and obedience to Christ comes first.

Our focus...

  • Equip rural pastors for shepherding their flocks and serving their local community.

  • Encourage African church leaders to write about personal experience and the needs of the local community.

  • Build a network of national and local faith-based organizations to increase efficiency and reduce redundancy of services.

  • Cultivate Christian vocational schools to promote purpose-driven education and strong Christian values.

  • Educate Christians regarding ethical governance and good stewardship.

ANIM 20/20 Vision:


Training for Pastoral and Christian Leadership in Africa

It is no coincidence that we see the Neem tree as a symbolic representation of our new center. The neem tree restores health through it's medicinal qualities, provides protection from the elements and flourishes in harsh climates. The Dalala-Grace Center will be a place of refuge to equip, train, and care for pastors and Christian leaders serving in Africa. We currently have the land and the architectural drawings. Find out how you can help make Dalala-Grace Center a reality.
