ABOUT US

Every Nation Southern Africa is part of a worldwide Every Nation family of churches and ministries established in 1994, dedicated to establishing church-planting churches, reaching the next generation on the campus, and preaching the Gospel to every nation. Every Nation has been making disciples, training leaders, and planting churches all over the world. Within the Southern African Region we represent a great diversity of people groups. Our vision is to see a multi-ethnic, multi-generational church that will seek first the Kingdom of God for the glory of Jesus Christ. For more on our global movement, go to www.everynation.org

HOW EVERY NATION STARTED

by Steve Murrell, EN President

 

Every Nation serendipitously started in my home when a couple of old friends had a layover in Manila. The date was March 4, 1994. The time of day was late, close to midnight. The place was my house in Pasig City, Philippines. Our fledgling ministry had no legal documents, no headquarters, no budget, no plan, no logo, but we had a clear call from God and a sense of stewardship for the university campuses of the world.

Six years after the demise of the ministry and mission agency that sent us to the Philippines, I received a call from Rice Broocks that would change our lives. Every decade or so, I get a call like that from him. Rice called to ask if he and an old friend, Phil Bonasso, could crash at my house in Manila for a couple of nights on their way to Singapore and Malaysia. Rice and Phil’s Asian adventure was a response to a “Macedonian call” from a friend of a friend asking them to consider assisting two new church-planting opportunities in Asia.

OUR MISSION

We exist to honour God by establishing Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, socially responsible

churches and campus ministries in every nation.

  • CHRIST-CENTRED

    We remain focused on Christ - above vision, man, doctrine, or experience.

    We put all our energy into pointing people to nothing and no one else but Christ.

     

    COLOSSIANS 1:17-18

  • SPIRIT-EMPOWERED

    We welcome and celebrate the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, who enables us to honour God and become effective witnesses of the gospel.

     

    ACTS 1:8

  • SPIRIT-EMPOWERED

    We demonstrate the compassion and character of Christ to the community and culture that we are in.

    PROVERBS 14:31

 

OUR CORE VALUES

LORDSHIP

Because Jesus is “King of kings and Lord of lords,” we believe that whole-hearted submission to God’s will and his Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.

COLOSSIANS 2:6

EVANGELISM

Because God’s heart is to reach the lost, we’re passionate about preaching the gospel and doing ministry in a way that engages people outside of the Christian faith. We seek to build churches primarily through evangelism, not transfer; through birth, not adoption.

JOHN 3:16, LUKE 19:10

DISCIPLESHIP

Because we’re called to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples—not conducting meetings, facilitating programs, or building buildings.

MATTHEW 28:19,20

LEADERSHIP

Because we’re called to establish churches and campus ministries in every nation, we’re committed to a culture of empowering leadership. We’re intentionally multi-generational, and we deliberately create opportunities and platforms to develop the next generation of leaders.

II TIMOTHY 2:2

FAMILY

Because the family is the foundation and validation of ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal success. And because we believe God has called us to be a spiritual family, we embrace community, reject the idea of disposable relationships, and choose to walk in love, respect, and unity.

PSALM 127:1,3
