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.
