Books for Africa

Read the project launch article here: Help Bring Reformation to Africa Through Books

TGC has a unique opportunity to contribute towards the needs of the African church by providing theologically rich and accessible books to aid in the equipping of church leaders. God has allowed us to build trusted relationships with many key ministries and distribution partners who are enthusiastic about our mission of Theological Famine Relief.

Ken Mbugua, a Kenyan pastor, describes the situation…

The nations of East and Central Africa are afflicted, like much of the continent, by a dearth of biblically faithful, easily accessible, gospel-centered resources. Pastors labor in our hinterlands working with nothing but a tattered Bible and no theological training. They lack the Ksh 500 ($5) that it would take to invest in a new Bible—let alone quality theological materials.

Our Objective

Our goal is to publish upwards of 100,000 copies of a dozen strategic English-language titles, in collaboration with indigenous African church leaders and expat workers. Books are being chosen based on the needs of the indigenous church, and will be donated and distributed through our Theological Famine Relief mission and network.

Giving Goal:  We invite you to contribute towards raising $75,000 online, with the first $25,000 being matched by generous givers, to reach a total of $100,000 for this project.

Strategic Distribution

TGC International Outreach has a proven track record of getting biblically sound books into the hands of church leaders around the world. Since June of 2013, we have distributed more than 100,000 books to English-speaking Africa including the following countries: 

Botswana, Burundi, Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan & S. Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe

Books will include:

Dig Deeper, Beynon/Sachs
Expositional Preaching, Helm
Finding Faithful Elders & Deacons, Anyabwile
The Family Life of a Christian Leader, Fernando
The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses, Bruno
Touchpoints: Heaven, Alcorn
What Is a Healthy Church?, Dever

How You Can Help

PRAY: Please ask the Lord to provide an open door for ministry through strengthening church leaders in Africa with solid, biblical resources which are published right there on the continent.

NETWORK:  We already have good English books available from our stock in America. Spread the word to your key contacts in Africa to ask short-term and long-term workers to bring resources on their next trip from the United States.

GIVE:  Consider a generous gift to this cause to see church leaders gain access to trusted teaching from the Scriptures in order to impact their own preaching and leading of congregations in Africa.
