Our message in Africa is that “...whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

The gracious gift of salvation is free. We teach the children that there is nothing you can do to earn or deserve this gift; rather, unconditionally place your faith in Jesus Christ, the one who purchased that salvation on the cross.

MSASM emphasizes follow-up discipleship training after evangelism to anchor new believers in their faith. Grace is not only God's plan for salvation but also for living the Christian life. Students are encouraged to find spiritual growth through Bible study in a local church.

Who We Are

Mustard Seed African School Ministries (MSASM) is a non-profit, faith-based organization committed to preaching the “good news” of Jesus Christ to school children in the African countries of Zambia and Malawi. Jesus commanded us to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Using local evangelists and preachers God has provided the means and opportunity to preach Jesus Christ in public school assemblies in these African nations.

In addition to the need for spiritual rebirth and renewal, these children face many physical and economic problems.

Zambia is one of the countries in Southern Africa with the highest number of children being orphaned due to AIDS. Sub-Saharan African countries now have 10.5 million children who have lost one or both parents to AIDS. MSASM supports these needs when funds are available.

Our 11 preachers in Africa are reaching 10,000 students per week with sound Bible teaching. We reach 10 students for every dollar that is donated to MSASM.
