African Pastors Fellowship

At APF, we work alongside influential Christian and community leaders to help them fulfil their visions for leadership development and pastoral formation. We don’t have a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution or an ‘off-the-shelf’ package but we work in long-term partnerships on bespoke objectives.
There are three strands to our work:
Pastoring of Pastors
Flourishing Communities
Hearing African Voices

Founded 1981

  • Mission statement

    The vision of APF is to resource and enable African Christian leaders, of all denominations, to minister effectively through the local church, transforming lives and building flourishing communities.

    The mission of APF is to develop the capacity of Christian leaders in partnership with African agencies to provide training, equipment and pastoral care (APF pastor the pastors that pastor the pastors).

    The ultimate goal of our charitable objectives is to bring community transformation, mainly in rural sub-Saharan east Africa, through the local church (registered networks, denominations and related partner NGOs). This is achieved largely through investment in capacity building of faith community leaders (both lay and ordained).

    The future strategy is to resource and release indigenous leaders with vision, capacity and an existing ministry ‘pastoring pastors’ so as to increase, multiply and better culturally contextualise the work.

    Some projects bring obvious and immediate community transformation (such as sustainable domestic solar technology) while other projects (such as training in family values, entrepreneurship and sustainable farming) will bring lasting benefit in the longer-term.
