Herald of Faith is a faith mission, dedicated to developing pastoral leaders and strengthening local churches. We began in 1958 though the ministry of Joseph Mattsson-Boze with the simply stated goal of training national pastors. Our name was taken from a magazine originally published in Swedish. We continued to publish it until 1971. Our roots actually go back further to a Swedish magazine, Sanningens Vittnen, published in 1910, which promoted the early Pentecostal movement. Joseph Mattsson-Boze was involved in editing the successor magazine, Trons Harold (Herald of Faith) from 1935 on.
The mission was begun because of a vision to train national evangelists originally just in Kenya. This work dominated us from 1958-1963, and we were greatly helped and influenced by the ministry of T.L. Osborn. Then we branched out and started working in other parts of Africa including Uganda, Tanzania, and Malawi.
