The burden for the formation of an African accountability organization was born out of a deep conviction that Christians in Africa must live out their faith and demonstrate spiritual maturity through distinctive and accountable behaviour in ministry, business and their personal lives. The burden was first shared at a meeting of the Stewardship Commission of the Association of Evangelicals in Africa in 1995.
The vision lay dormant until 2012, when a group of like-minded people began to meet informally to plan and to pray for the institutionalization of their common vision. This core group eventually became AfCAA’s Steering Committee.
Following are key milestones along the AfCAA journey:
In April 2013, AfCAA’s Steering Committee held its inaugural multi-disciplinary workshop with representatives from eight countries spanning Anglophone, Francophone and Lusophone Africa namely: Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Togo and Uganda. The Steering Committee also had representation from three pan-African organizations:
- Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA)
- All African Conference of Churches (AACC)
- Organization of African Instituted Churches (OAIC)
The Steering Committee received Technical Assistance from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) including:
- Executive Committee
- Standards Committee
- Finance Committee
- Communications Committee
