All For Christ MinistryBenshangul-Gumuz area, Ethiopia
But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee. Acts 26:16
AFCM Director, Minister Solomon Haile
ordained by Fellowship of Christ International
All for Christ Ministry (AFCM) started its work in 2005 and has legal certification from the government justice office to minister in the area. Recently the regional government office gave AFCM the land in two different sites to construct churches and Bible schools.
Three native missionaries are reaching out in the BENSHANGUL-GUMUZ area, located in Western part of Ethiopia. This region is the least developed place in Ethiopia.
It is also in this region that five different ethnic groups are yet to be reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ. These groups are the Gumuz, Berta, Shnasha, Mao and Como. They are animist and most of these tribes lack the basic resources, such as health care, clothing and clean drinking water. With the result that Muslims nearby Sudan take advantage of this by supplying these people's physical needs, with the intention of converting them to Islam.
AFCM's vision is to facilitate the mobilization of local believers through training, workshops and sponsors to reach out with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We see people of Ethiopia in general and people of Benshangul Gumuz in particular, who are in the bondage of sin and rule of darkness, be liberated by the proclamation of the Good News of Salvation in the Name of Jesus Christ. Thus fulfilling the commandment of the Great commission. These missionaries that we are currently supporting have won over four hundred souls for the Kingdom of God in the past ten months. In addition, we built and planted two churches in the area.
We have purchased and distributed four hundred Gospel of John booklets in 2006. God stretched out His hand through these missionaries as people were healed from paralysis, blindness, dumbness, demon possession and different types of physical and spiritual diseases.
Among those delivered and brought in the glorious Kingdom of Jesus Christ were witches and others involved in different pagan and occultic practices. God also delivered some of them from deep poverty. The missionaries are teaching them how to plough their land, prepare beehives, planting vegetables, and live a productive lifestyle.
A new Church for new believers.

I thank you very much and wish you God’s abundant blessings for sharing the vision to reach the GUMUZ with the Gospel of Christ. By the grace of our God we can see some changes in Benishangul Gumuz. The Lord is moving through the lives of those who have said yes to His call.
