Living and farming God's way since 1994
Amos exists to restore relationship between God, man and creation. Amos is a Christian agricultural ministry group that is structured as a network of farmers across Africa committed to demonstrating the vision of living and farming God’s way.
We actively work towards the transformation of agricultural communities in Africa by restoring and building relationships with God, people and creation to reflect the Kingdom of God.
Living and farming God’s way.
God called Hennie and Janetta Viljoen to start AMOS, a new ministry named after the prophet farmer Amos in the Bible.AMOS was founded on the 13th of August 1993 on the farm Swartwater, near Memel in the North Eastern Free State. At first we called ourselves Project Amos and the vision was “our farm for Christ”. Within a few months it was changed to “Every Farm for Christ” to reflect the growth we expected and the principle of discipleship. In 2005 the vision was reformulated and became what it still is today – Living and Farming God’s Way.
In August 2001 a Section 21 company called AMOS AGRIMIN was registered and work continued under this name. The name Project Amos was discarded because the word project implies that there is a beginning and an end. We don’t, however, envisage an end to the ministry of Amos Agrimin. LIVING AND FARMING GOD’S WAY is not a project or a slogan. It is a 24/7 lifestyle!
AMOS AGRIMIN has since grown into an international ministry and serves the agricultural community in various African Countries. In 2011 a prominent part of the original vision materialized: The ﬁrst GF4GF Centre was established on the farm Palms near Groblershoop in the Northern Cape, South Africa. These centres address the need for foundations in rural and agricultural communities throughout Africa to help people farm properly and to fulﬁl their Godly calling as nations and stewards of Africa’s fertile land.
