African Charismatic Initiatives and Classical Pentecostal Missionaries

(p.41) 3 Moya
African Pentecostalism

Ogbu Kalu

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a description of charismatic flares in missionary churches from 1920 to 1960. It then considers the typology of classical Pentecostalism in African from 1901 to 1960, and early Pentecostalism in Southern Africa from 1908 to 1958. It argues that Pentecostalism emerged from an indigenous response of Africans to the missionary message; the missionary input from evangelical ministries such as Scripture Union and Campus Crusade; from the increasing missionary forays of Pentecostals from the holiness tradition and Pentecostal denominations from various countries who utilized the labors of African agents; and from interdenominational parachurches, bolstered by the educational institutions of many American Bible colleges and many evangelical evangelistic outreaches.

Keywords:   Africans, Pentecostalism, Christians, charismatism, missionary churches, Scripture Union, Campus Crusade
