While working with AE, Mel has pioneered a Student Discipleship Program for upper primary to young adults, entitled ‘Building the Church of Tomorrow, Today’.

Through Mel’s work, there is now a strong Student Discipleship Program throughout Ethiopia.
African Enterprise Team
African Enterprise’s vision is to be a catalyst for effective urban evangelism in Word and Deed in partnership with the church. The ‘family of AE’ are represented by teams in 10 different countries in Africa and 7 support teams around the globe, together with our valued donors, volunteers, prayer partners, mission partners and board directors in each country. As one body under Christ, we are actively working to unite churches on mission in up to 15 African cities each year, reaching over a million people and seeing tens of thousands making a commitment to follow Jesus per annum. Our duty of care to new believers involves coordinating training for pastors and volunteers and following up new believers.
Our social action programs give practical support and hope, and are all provided through the love of Jesus and faithfulness of his people. This is made possible through the very talented teams of experienced evangelists in Africa and supporters who are praying and giving financially to see the Great Commission fulfilled and God glorified through Jesus. In addition we run development programs for vulnerable people to give them better opportunities for health, wellbeing and to support their families. Each of the team members below are responsible for different parts of our ministry through Word and Deed, and we all work together under an AE Covenant of Partnership to ensure we do our best for churches, new believers, our supporters and one another.
