Africa Leadership Summit is bi-ennial event in Jerusalem, Israel for African leaders from four different sectors of society to deliberate on practical way forward for Africa to arise and become a major player in global platform.
After over 50 years of independence of most African countries, it is sad to note that Africa with its vast human and natural resources still lacks what it takes to play major role in global platform, both in Political and Economic arena due to the challenge of lack of good leadership and governance that most Africa nations are faced with. Hence the decision to embark upon a Programme intended to address this challenge.
The decision to host the Summit in Israel and to connect African leaders to Israel is born out of the need for Africa to benefit both from Israel’s Abrahamic heritage and Israel’s Agricultural and Technological advancement. It is an opportunity for African Christian leaders to go beyond yearly pilgrimage to Israel, as it is the case now, to importing ideas for the development of Africa. If Israel can transform a desert to a food basket, there is much that Africa with its fertile land and great weather can learn from Israel.
Hebrews 11:10 – The Abrahamic quest for cities with Godly foundations continues in Africa. A quest to abandon secular, humanistic and demonic foundations, in order to establish societies based on Biblical values. To connect and develop African leaders who understand the place of Israel in the leadership of nations and various sectors of society.
ALS attracts leaders from different sectors of society, cities of Africa and among Africans in the Diaspora, including:
- Business Leaders
- Church Leaders
- Community Leaders
- Political Leaders
The goals of Africa Leadership Summit are to:
- Create a highway of exchange of ideas and business between African communities and Israel. This includes the networking of African business people with Israeli businessmen through matchmaking.
- Establish a fellowship of Godly political leadership in every city and nations of Africa.
- Promote the support of African leaders for Israel.
- Create a platform for fellowship and continuous interaction between Africans from different regions and Africans in the diaspora.
- Conduct prophetic and prayer tours of the land of Israel and focus on inviting the Lord to accomplish those things which He accomplished in Bible days and more in the cities of Africa. These tours proceed beyond the religious or spiritual to supply a first-hand experience of the growth of the Israeli economy in the villages, towns, and cities within seven decades of the establishment of modern Israel.
