"God has called us to be advocates for Christ TO the people of Africa...and FOR the people of Africa to the rest of the developed world."

- Founder, Jerod Smith

AFA was formed in 2014 when (then) Pastors Jerod and Katina Smith were reawakened to a call to full time missionary work in Africa.  Having lived and served in Rwanda previously, they were no strangers to the pressing needs of the African people.  They realized that many good people in developed countries would like to help those in need, but simply were not aware of how great those needs were.  Thus, the dream of speaking on behalf of those who can’t speak for themselves, was birthed.
