  • Freedom of religion. A strong push to give all religions equal say has given high profile to the ethnic African religions, Islam, Hinduism, humanism and the interfaith movement at the expense of Christianity.
  • The continuing expanding mission involvement and global vision of South Africans are encouraging. Innovative strategies for sending and supporting are underway and work is growing from among all races and denominational types.  Most evangelical congregations have some involvement in mission work in other countries, especially in central and southern Africa
