Across the African continent Assemblies of God churches are making preparations to launch the most aggressive Pentecostal emphasis in the history of the movement in that continent. The “Decade of Pentecost” emphasis from 2010 — 2020 is aimed at seeing 10 million believers in Africa baptized in the Holy Spirit and empowered as witnesses.
The Decade of Pentecost will be officially launched on Pentecost Day, Sunday, May 23, 2010. The theme for Pentecost Day and the 2010— 2011 emphasis is “Empowered as Witnesses—Acts 1:8.”
On that day every pastor in our 60,000 Assemblies of God churches in Africa will be encouraged to preach on the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the Great Commission of Christ.
