The Africa Leadership Summit (ALS) seeks to harvest and network Christian leaders. These include individuals who share the dream of a revived, reformed, and transformed continent. It is a quest for an Africa powered by the Abrahamic covenant as implemented by Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary. (Gen. 12:2-3) Individuals prepared to take responsibility for the development of their cities/sectors (Heb. 11:10) to bear witness to the redemptive power in the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. [the seed of Abraham] (Heb. 2:16). ALS structure is Overseen by a central Apostolic Team. ALS is expressed as distinct assemblies of Christian leaders in different African communities, tribes and cultures so as to effectively address key issues peculiar to each group. The issue of foundational, governing covenants contracted by forebears in every community is a key concern in this movement. These covenants though hidden in many communities are observable in the prevailing values and culture of each society. These covenants need to be substituted with the Abrahamic Covenant. The ALS envisions redemption and sustainable development one sector and one city at a time, for each entity that prepares itself and embraces this move of God.
A sustained chain reaction under divine [supervision] guidance is thus envisaged as the ALS promotes collaborations and adopts a “bottom-up” participatory development paradigm, the organization seeks to harness the currently untapped, enormous African resources at home and in the diaspora via the instrumentality of the Africa Agency (AA) and the Africa-Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC). With her distinctively Christian identity, principles, and values, the Africa Agency will provide the needed credible, technically competent, and spiritually resilient organic Platform through which Africans and peoples of African descent everywhere can participate in a God-honouring sustainable development of Africa. While the Africa-Israel Chamber of Commerce will provide economic cooperation and support between businesses in Africa and Israel in particular. Though a distinctively Christian organization, the ALS does not discriminate on religious grounds in the provisioning of her services. According to the terms of the Abrahamic Covenant which we dearly cherish, the ALS is to become a blessing to all families of the earth to the glory of the Almighty God. ALS vision thus find expression in Western Nigeria through the vehicle of the Christian Leadership Assembly, Yoruba land. CLAY appreciates the inexhaustive list of indigenous ministries and ministers who have been trailblazers in Yoruba land of the gospel including Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther, Moses Orimolade Tunolase, Joseph Ayo Babalola, Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, Peter Akinola, Enoch Adejare Adeboye, William F. Kumuyi, Mike Oye, and the distinguished stateman Chief Obafemi Awolowo, in addition to numerous white missionaries specifically sent to the land. Yoruba land is certainly indebted to the Almighty God to produce fruits that would bring glory to His holy name. It is a great privilege for us to pick up the baton from these great predecessors, and hopefully coast in to the touchline in our generation.
