Afrika Mhlophe has been in ministry since 1998 and from 2002 he became the leading pastor of Good News Community Church in Port Elizabeth.

He ministers in various platforms in South Africa and abroad, including being a regular speaker at the Karoo Mighty Men Conferences (KMMC) where he addresses thousands of men from various parts of South Africa.


Afrika’s main focus revolves around calling Christians to bring kingdom influence into every domain of life and it is for this reason that he has ventured to speak and write on difficult subjects such as racism, corruption, idolatry, etc.

His two published books; ‘Christianity and the Veneration of the Dead’ and ‘Freed by but Imprisoned by Culture’ are landmark publications that dare open up the taboo subjects of African Religion and its hegemonic influence over the African culture and identity.

He is a board chairperson of Gateway News, an online Christian news portal and also writes regularly for the publication. He has a fortnightly column on Daily Dispatch called ‘Pressing Matters’ that looks at topical issues affecting South Africa.

Afrika currently resides in Port Elizabeth, South Africa with his wife Lindelwa and a son and daughter.
