African Christian research is a vital component in the telling of that story. The way in which that story is told is one of the most important components of African Christian research. One of the fundamental errors of researchers today is that they are telling the story of African Christianity “as if the Christian Church were in Africa, but not of Africa.” This presentation posits that to be meaningful and empowering, African Christian research must, of necessity, include African thought and ideas from inception through completion to the implementation of recommendations arising from the research.
