The awakening Giant
- Look inside
The phenomenal growth of Christianity in Africa in recent decades is nothing but a miracle. The church in Africa grew into a giant. However, some would describe this church as a sleeping giant, herself not really participating in God’s mission. Dr Khauoe is arguing for an opposite view: the giant is awakening! He skillfully describes how the church, especially in Africa, is participating in meaningful ways in God’s mission to the world. He suggests practical approaches in enhancing this missional impact. This emerging voice of a mission leader in Africa needs to be heard.

He matriculated in 1989 and obtained theological diplomas at Northern Transvaal Bible College (1976), Vista University (1995), and Hebron College (1997).
