Our Story Our Story

Our passion to proclaim the Gospel is carried out primarily through evangelistic outreaches, or ‘missions’, in the major cities of Africa. We believe that all people – from street children to presidents – need to hear and be changed by the Gospel!

African Enterprise has played a pivotal role in Africa for the past 60 years in bringing peace and reconciliation during conflict, bringing hundreds of thousands of people to church and providing vulnerable people with new life options through apprenticeship programs.

Our commitment to the Great Commission and glorifying God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is made possible through our team of evangelists located in twelve countries throughout Africa, mission volunteers through churches in Africa and across the world, and all our supporters around the world.

Claimed for Christ


Our History

As a young South African man, just 21 years old, Michael Cassidy had a heart for his people and felt the Lord calling him to city-evangelism in Africa. During the summer of 1961, he set out on an exploratory visit to 31 major cities of Africa, a trip in which God’s vision for Michael became clear. On a long walk on the beach, Michael drew an outline of Africa in the sand and wrote “Claimed for Christ” inside it. His experience is recounted in the book African Harvest: “He wrote in his diary; ‘I asked God for 50 years of ministry in Africa.’”

Graduating from Fuller Theological Seminary in 1963, Michael returned to South Africa with a small team and his work began. The first city-wide mission was held in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and from there the work expanded slowly across the continent. A second team was established in Uganda in 1971 under the leadership of Bishop Festo Kivengere. Today AE has teams in twelve African countries: Ghana, Uganda, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Zambia.

International Team Leader / CEO

Rev Dr Stephen Mbogo

Rev. Dr Stephen Mbogo has a passionate commitment to the preaching of the gospel and the establishment of Biblical leadership in Africa. His desire is to see the advancement of God’s kingdom and the transformation of Africa through the salvation of its people and the sound governance of its leaders.


As a young boy, Stephen witnessed the transforming power of the Gospel in the lives of his family members. In high school he experienced that power himself when he surrendered his life to Christ and began a life-long journey of faith. After graduating from university, he decided to enter career Christian service and joined African Enterprise in 1992, where he served for two years as Youth Coordinator, followed by six years as Missions Coordinator. In 2000, he was appointed Team Leader of AE Kenya, serving in that position for eight years before moving to Biola University in Southern California for his doctoral studies.

In January 2013, he was appointed African Enterprise’s third Global CEO and International Team Leader. In this role, he provides overall leadership to the organisation, coordinating its work of evangelising the cities of Africa through word and deed in partnership with the church. He also currently serves as the Lausanne Movement’s Regional Director for the English and Portuguese Speaking Africa (EPSA) Region, and as the chair of Movement Day Africa.

Stephen holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Daystar University in Nairobi, a Masters in Christian Ministries from Nairobi International School of Theology (currently International Leadership University), and a Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies from Biola University in Southern California, USA. He is married to Prof Rosemary Mbogo, and they have two biological children, Victor and Joy, as well as several foster children. The family lives in Nairobi, Kenya.
