COVID-19 UPDATE:

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, this conference has been moved online for 2020. The application deadline has now passed but it is highly likely to be repeated in 2021. Please check back in November: www.uk.om.org/go.

If God has given you a heart for Africa, then Love Africa is for you!

The purpose of Love Africa is to unite the church worldwide in its effort to advance God’s kingdom on the African continent. This is accomplished through mobilising the church, missionary networking and mission’s exposure for sponsors and church leaders. It is also done through equipping the saints in Africa and around the world, with practical tools to enter the harvest field.

As the annual OM Africa missions conference in Kabwe, Zambia, Love Africa is an opportunity to hear stories from African missionaries and realise the possibilities that exist on the continent. Drawing 500-800 participants from many different countries around the world, Love Africa offers African church pastors a challenge to mobilise their churches for the advancement of God’s kingdom, and international churches a challenge to see opportunities to partner with their African brothers and sisters.
