Abstract:Scholars have frequently commented on the networks fostered by Africans living in the diaspora. It is not commonly recognized that many African Christians also relied upon 'mission networks'. These networks exerted a degree of influence on migrants, but were also a great help, particularly to students, and for that reason many Africans valued them while living in Britain. Such was the case with G. Daniels Ekarte, who founded the African Churches Mission in Liverpool, and others, including: James 'Holy' Johnson, Byang Kato, Parmenas Mukiri Githendu and Emmanuel Akingbala. Bibliogr., notes, ref. sum. in English and French. [Journal abstract]
