AOM’s vision is to partner with the African church to establish new fellowships of believers in under-churched people groups in southern Africa. We desire to establish churches devoted to holiness, obedience to Christ, small group accountability, and with a vision to evangelize to their people and beyond. This is being done through prayerful and strategic training of Christians though coaching networks.
Mozambique – In 2008, AOM established a new missions base in Inhambane, Mozambique, when Scott and Lisa Harris and their children relocated from South Africa to Mozambique. The goal of this new mission effort is to reach the unreached Tonga people of Inhambane Province. The Harris family, along with local leaders, envision making disciples that form simple house churches throughout the Province that will then spread through the entire nation. We are praying for a great outpouring of the Kingdom of God upon this people group that has been largely resistant to the Gospel and known for their witchcraft.
Zambia – Through a partnership with Martin and Grace Mulyata, AOM has helped establish a network of churches among the under-churched Lozi tribe in western Zambia and throughout the country. The Followers of Christ Fellowship now has over 25 churches in the country and several small congregations in neighboring Malawi and Angola. In addition to Mongu, churches have been started in key locations that across the country such as Lusaka, Kabwe, Chipata, and Livingstone.
Scott continues to assists the Followers of Christ Fellowship churches with yearly leadership and discipleship training.
Zimbabwe – Through the work and encouragement of Allen and Janelle Avery, a fellowship of churches has been developed in western Zimbabwe. Followers of Christ Fellowship in Zimbabwe now consists of over 30 independent, self-governing churches.
AOM assists the churches with yearly leadership and discipleship training.
Beyond – Scott has recently begun training the same principles he is using in Mozambique in other African countries and beyond, including Brazil. Our desire is to follow the guiding of the Holy Spirit as to where AOM will expand to next. We believe that God lead AOM to the Tonga of Mozambique. As we pray, we believe that He will once again lead us, on His timing, to the right people groups and the right ministry partners who will work beside us to accomplish those tasks.
