Celebrate our 50th Anniversary with us!

From the 20 – 23 August 2012 we will be celebrating our Anniversary after 50 years of ministry on the African Continent!

During this time we will not only be looking back in thanksgiving for all that the Lord has done over the past 50 years, but also looking forward in anticipation to the future of this ministry.

Michael Cassidy’s vision to “Evangelise the Cities of Africa through Word and Deed in Partnership with the Church”, led to the first city-wide mission facilitated by AE, in Pietermaritzburg in 1962. And 50 years later we will be holding another city-wide mission in the same city!

Following the mission, which will run from 12-19 August 2012, we will be hosting 4 days of Jubilee Celebrations from the 20-23 August 2012.


As well as celebrating the past 50 years, and some of the great evangelists that have journeyed with Michael, over this time, we will be looking forward with anticipation toall that lies ahead. Speakers from all over Africa, and beyond, will be sharing a retrospective and prophetic view on the state of the Church in Africa and the world.

These Speakers include:

  • Michael Cassidy – Founder of African Enterprise
  • Stephen Lungu – CEO of African Enterprise

  • Victoria Wilson– Canada/Uganda. Daughter of the late Rev. John Wilson
  • Luis Palau – Luis Palau and his ministry have shared the Gospel with more than 1 billion people through evangelistic events and media. He has spoken in person to 25 million people in 72 countries with more than 1 million registered decisions for Jesus Christ. He has authored close to 50 books and countless articles on issues of faith, and has counselled with business and political leaders and heads of state around the world

There will also be ample opportunity to meet with the African team leaders and Board members from 10 different countries on the continent, as well as Directors and Board members from the Support Boards.

In addition, we will be holding a special gala dinner and other evening entertainments/ and day trips to surrounding areas of interest.

Video of Youth Prayer March in PMB!


Youth declare Pietermaritzburg the “City of Good Choices”

The shoppers on Langilabele St in Pietermaritzburg were presented with more choice than normal on Saturday morning! A group of over 100 young Christians, singing and dancing, marched down the street declaring “Choose-Zikhethele – the choice is yours!”

The young people, representing church youth groups from around the city, marched from Pine St, down Langibalele St, to the Church of the Vow. Dancing and singing they stopped four times at key points to pray for their city. They prayed God’s blessings on those working in education, business, provincial government, the municipality and the taxi associations.

The march was significant in that it represented the next generation of young leaders challenging citizens to make the right choices that would determine the future of the City of Choice. In between singing hymns, the young people prayed that our business and political leaders would make good choices – honesty over corruption and prosperity rather than poverty, to name just two. At the Church of the Vow they prayed for unity in the city and amongst the churches. Throughout the day they called on the city to choose Jesus.

The young people are part of the “Choose-Zikhethele” mission to Pietermaritzburg, facilitated by African Enterprise in partnership with the churches of the city. The mission starts this year and will involve a long-term commitment by city churches to strategically serve the city in every aspect of our corporate life. Church leaders hope to see transformation in the lives of individuals, families, key institutions like the municipality and the broader city itself.

AE is an international Christian missions agency with offices in 16 countries, but founded 50 years ago in Pietermaritzburg by Michael Cassidy. Churches and Christian NGO’s from all Christian denominations are welcome to join the mission by contacting the African Enterprise offices on 033 347 1911.
