Sponsored by CAMPUS of the Michigan Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Africans Living In View of Eternity (ALIVE) is a grassroots movement of Seventh-day Adventist students and young professionals determined to hasten the second coming of Jesus Christ in this generation.
When most people think of Africa, they think of calamities like war, poverty, disease, corruption and tribalism. The young people spearheading the ALIVE movement are driven by the conviction that these plagues are only symptoms of a deeper problem that is spiritual in nature. As such, it demands a spiritual solution.
ALIVE seeks to be a part of that spiritual solution by inspiring, training and mobilizing African Seventh-day Adventist young adults; challenging them to biblical excellence and effective involvement in evangelism in every sphere. To this end, ALIVE volunteers visited Zambia, Rwanda and Ghana in 2009, hosting young adult training conferences and engaging young people in active evangelism. Each of these trips has had a telling influence.
In Zambia, for example, about 1000 students came together for training and inspiration during the national student convention. The attendance peaked at 2500 on Sabbath. On Sunday afternoon, these young people participated in an evangelistic effort that took Lusaka city by storm.
What is even more exciting, however, is that the student convention was only the beginning of a movement. Through the youth led IMPACT missionary movement, the young people in Zambia have carried on the work, undertaking both rural and urban missions. In 2009 alone, over 1000 souls were baptized through the ministry of these young people. ALIVE’s goal is to see such young adult missionary movements replicated across Africa.
It is for this reason that ALIVE visited Kenya in September 2010. ALIVE assisted with the program and speakers for the youth conference. However, the pre-work, publicity and ground planning for the conference was done by the local youth leadership and the Kenyan chapter of ALIVE which was in its formative stage. It helped in the organisation of the conference and continued with evangelism work even after the conference.
Since September 2010, ALIVE Kenya has been working in and around Nairobi and extended its mission work to Un-entered Areas in Kenya. Apart from the several missions done in Kenya, ALIVE Kenya has done a number of International Missions with Support from GYC, ALIVE and Conferences of the Adventist Church in Tanzania, Uganda and DR Congo. It’s the aim of ALIVE to open other chapters in the region and within Kenya with or work closely with other Affiliate groups to reach out to more people groups in the region and Africa at large.
