Zion Evangelical Ministries of Africa

Zion Evangelical Ministries of Africa (ZEMA's) ministry is to share life's journey with the amaZioni people of Southern Africa. Whether sharing God's Word through Bible schools or the realities of daily life, our mission is to empower amaZioni, encourage the African Church and grow the body of Christ.  

Together, this multi-cultural ministry seeks to obey God's Great Commission by building on our common understanding of the Zionist's religious heritage. ZEMA missionaries enjoy a wide-open door to interact meaningfully with church members of African Indigenous Churches. Finding common ground with these traditional African churches is natural, and presents a welcome task of encouraging Africans to see in God's Word what it is to become one body in Christ.

Challenging all to hold loosely to our ethnic cultures, and tightly to our Biblical culture, missionaries and Africans alike, are challenged to evaluate religious traditions and find a relationship with God, and one another, through our common belief in Jesus.

Zion Evangelical Ministries of Africa is an old mission with a vast opportunity.  20+ million African people identify themselves as "amaZioni", or people of Zion.  These "Zionists" are an indigenous people group that are syncretistic, mixing traditional practices of ancestor worship with forms of Christianity. ZEMA has a wide open door to reach these people because of ZEMA's rich history and the foundational beliefs we share that are rooted in Christianity.  ZEMA's purpose is "to know God and make Him known among the amaZioni."  Embracing what is African while reinforcing what is Christian, ZEMA missionaries encourage these African Initiated Churches to "stay African", and grow in a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. ZEMA is looking for communications students with creative minds and a fresh outlook who would be available to assist us to tell the story, and get the word out!  The amaZioni people are open to the gospel and welcome ministers of the Gospel who are...
