Africa Council

The Africa Council (AC) of the Church of God is the highest administrative Body of the Church of God in Africa. It consists of respective Regional Superintendents, and Department leaders of the various ministries. The Field Director for Africa serves as its chairman.

Beginning in 2008, the AC meets biannually to strategize, cast vision and discuss issues pertaining to the Church of God World Missions in Africa and the spreading of the Gospel through the continent and beyond.

As part of its function the AC organized and convened Continent wide gatherings at its Africa HQ at Leopards Hill, Lusaka Zambia, such as:
