Overview: African Evangelical Christian Mission (AECM) has been a Mission ONE partner since 2006. AECM’s ministry includes evangelism, discipleship, and church planting in the countries of Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria. They train pastors and missionaries through an extensive network of local churches.
Benin is the birthplace of Voodoo. Many of the rural villages in West Africa worship idols and are in bondage to demonic spirits. AECM has a special emphasis on sharing the Gospel of Christ in such villages through various evangelistic activities, including the showing of the Jesus Film. In one case, a whole village, led by the chief, came to Christ. Now a church, a school, and a clinic are established in the area and are helping elevate the people out of spiritual and physical poverty.
