Profiles of African-American Missionaries
Profiles of African-American Missionaries features the lives and ministries of the great African-Americans who have gone to the world with the message of Christ. It is a collection of stories sharing the ministries of several African-American missionary pioneers from the 1700s to the present, dealing with all the social and ministry issues that they had to face here and abroad.
Readers will be inspired by the dedication and commitment of these great African-Americans, as they lived out God’s great commission to go into all the world and make disciples of all people. It will inspire and challenge all readers to greater personal involvement in God’s worldwide mission.
Profiles of African-Americans Missionaries is a book that should be in every library. It is an indispensable and invaluable tool. It will increase God’s servants’ prospective of His plan of reconciliation through His church and the ministry of missions. It is incredible to read about the commitment of many faithful African-American missionaries that have served under many life-threatening circumstances. Certainly the challenge is before us, especially in this era.Supt. Vincent E. Mathews Sr
I am delighted to encourage anyone who desires to be informed about the history of African Americans in missions to devour this very informative and inspiring work that details the challenges and God-given victories by African Americans seeking to obey Christ by going into the entire world, with the good news for all men.Bishop Emery Lindsay
In 1994, as senior pastor of Calvary Evangelical Baptist Church, I had the opportunity to visit Liberia, West Africa to assist in organizing a major reconciliation conference where I served as one of the speakers. I saw firsthand the result of the war. Since that time my church and I have been increasingly engaged in world missions. Global missions has allowed us to open new doors for reconciliation between African-American Christians and White American Christians by developing strategic partnerships. I am pleased to endorse this book as a tool in the hands of our Mighty God regarding missions.Allen R. McFarland
Profiles of African-American Missionaries is an extraordinary book which is a must read for anyone interested and concerned about missions, particularly within the context of the African-American faith community. It really should, on the one hand, help us celebrate those who in many ways are unknown heroes and heroines in the field of missions. Yet it should also challenge and inspire us, particularly within the African-American church family, to become far more engaged in connecting with our global family, and moving well beyond our comfort zone of daily existence. Brian Johnson, one of my mentors in the ministry of missions, is an incredible “doer of the word” when it comes to exhorting people to live and share their faith in a most compelling way to advance the Kingdom of God. If you have a desire to influence the world for Christ, Profiles of African-American Missionaries will let you examine how others were pacesetters in that regard. This book will hopefully propel you to step it up in your life’s work and leave a legacy of winning more souls for the Lord Jesus Christ and of fostering greater human understanding.Rev. Jonathan L. Weaver
