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 willing to embrace what is African while evangelizing and discipling church leaders. ZEMA is bringing the gospel back into an apostate church. With over 130 churches registered with the Zion Evangelical Fellowship of Africa, and 2000+ church leaders studying at our Zion Bible Schools, ZEMA aims to cooperate and join with what God is doing to grow the African body of believer's in Jesus Christ.
If you are interested in an internship in the next year or two, please consider spending time with us. We are eager to talk with you. We would like you to consider how you might assist us to grow ZEMA's reach by chronicling impactful stories. We have thoughts we would like to build upon. You have gifts, talents, and innovative ideas.
