 Senegal - Churches multiply

CHURCHES CONTINUE TO MULTIPLY AMONG TRIBAL GROUP IN SENEGAL

The church is growing in large numbers among a specific tribal group in the West African country of Senegal, say CB International’s Glenn Kendall. Until recently, the Serer people were primarily bound up in an animistic religion, but now many are turning to Christ.
“Experienced missionaries set the foundation for ministry with people coming to Christ,” he said. “Then you have key gifted nationals who are using culturally appropriate methods to help the church grow.”
Despite the gains, much work remains. “While the church among the Serer people is growing at a rate of 15 to 20 percent per year, it’s starting from such a relatively small base that there are still many thousands of people yet to come to Christ,” Kendall says. In addition to evangelizing their own, Serer believers are looking to share the gospel with Senegal’s under-reached Wolof people.
