About West Africa

WEC works in 9 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa, and also seconds workers to partner organisations and churches in other African countries.

Our teams seek to work together with local churches to show and speak of the compassion of Jesus to those who have not heard in order to see churches established among them.  WEC in Africa also seeks to mobilize and facilitate local Christians for cross cultural mission.

We cannot give details online about all the countries, situations and opportunities we have found where you can serve in West Africa, but we will be able to tell you more when you meet us face to face.

This is an exciting time for the African continent - many challenges but also many opportunities. Why not join us in the adventure?
