Mission Africa

Biography/History

Set up by Samuel Alexander Bill, a 23-year-old Belfast builder, in Qua Iboe in south-eastern Nigeria in 1887, the mission successfully expanded providing theological education, youth work and medical resources. The name changed from the Qua Iboe Mission to the Qua Iboe Fellowship in 1984 and to Mission Africa in 2002 reflecting links built up in Burumburum, in Chad and in Ghana where it is associated with the African Christian Mission. At the beginning of the 21st century its approach is interdenomenational and evangelical; in addition to its former activities it now provides medical and educational resources for dealing with AIDS, and family support.
