oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The mission initiatives of African Pentecostals in continental perspective

Volume 28, Issue 2-3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The aim of this paper is to consider the main characteristics of the mission initiatives of African Pentecostals. In doing so, Pentecostalism is regarded as a predominantly ""Third World"" phenomenon and its mission initiatives are viewed in the particular perspective of sub-Saharan Africa. More especially, the paper focuses on the message proclaimed by African pentecostals and the resultant mass conversion movements, their charismatic leadership styles and evangelising methods, and their interaction with traditional rellgions and culture.
