Welcome to the Africa Central Field. Our field covers Cameroon, Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Madagascar, and Reunion.

The field began as the "Africa Middle Field" in 1996 and included São Tome / Principe and Equatorial Guinea. In October 2014, those countries were moved to the Africa Lusophone Field (which includes Portuguese-speaking countries), and the Middle Field was renamed to the Central Field.

In the Africa Central Field there are 213 organized churches, 207 preaching points and almost 30,000 members. We praise God for the men and women, both indigenous and missionaries, who have sacrificially given their lives in obedience to the great commission. We rejoice that the Lord Jesus Christ has sent us to minister in these areas of the globe to make disciples for Him.
