niger

Niger is situated in West Africa with a land area of 1,287,000 square kilometers and a population of about 14 million.  According to the United Nations Development Program, Niger is the poorest country in the world.

Islam is the major religion in Niger, with 95 percent of the population adhering to Islam.

The Assemblies of God in Niger started in 1990, with missionaries from France, Burkina Faso, and the United States.  They were followed by missionaries from Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Togo, Benin, and El Salvador. In 2006, the national church was formed, and it is led by national leaders.

Our vision is to win the country for Christ.  The Assemblies of God of Niger has 60 churches, 50 pastors, and approximately 4,000 members.  It is organized in the following departments: children, women, youth, and an NGO.  The NGO’s name is Kamna, which means, “love” in Hausa, the major language in the country.

Through Kamna, the Assemblies of God church wants to fight against extreme poverty by offering services in education, health, and water solutions.  Thank you for praying for us to reach our mains goals: evangelizing the entire population by church planting in every town or village and helping to solve poverty.
