Reformed African Americans Minister Among Aboriginals in Australia (Video)

By Tom Mills, Oct 11, 2018

In July 2017 a group of Reformed African Americans traveled to Australia to minister among Aboriginals. What the trip participants discovered among the Aboriginal people was a deep need for hope, and an openness to hearing the gospel from men and women of color. There was a natural connection because of their shared history. Many of the social, economic, cultural considerations among Aboriginals that keep them from thriving because of their history and displacement are the exact issues that are echoed in urban America today.

This group of African Americans saw an unique opportunity to bring the gospel to the nations, and returned home with a deepened calling to mobilize other African Americans to the global mission field. As a response, the group solidified as the Reformed African American Delegates, (which later expanded into Reformed and Diverse Delegates (RADD) to include other ethnicities). With are 22 million African Americans who identify as Christians in the U.S., and fewer than 300 involved in global missions, the need for more African American missionaries is great. "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few" (Luke 10:2). 

Watch and learn more about this groundbreaking group of men and women, and consider how you can help further their call.
