Good News for Tanga

EI Tanzania starts a new partnership in Tanga

More than a year ago on July 14th, 2020, Emmanuel International began an exciting new partnership with Tanzania Assemblies of God (TAG) in the Western Tanga region of Tanzania. Tanga Region is one of 31 administrative regions of Tanzania.  Tanga region is divided in to ten districts and has a population predominantly Muslim.                                                

There are 3 EI Tanzania office locations: Mwanza in the north Tanzania region, Iringa in the southern central region, and now Tanga on the north coast (locations starred on map).

Discussions about the potential of this new partnership started in 2018 with a request from TAG Western Tanga.  Initial conversations between July 2020 to January 2021 between Emmanuel International Tanzania and TAG Western Tanga provided an understanding of what this partnership could look like.   The focus of Tanga office will be to build relationships in these communities and to introduce Holistic missions to bring positive change in all basic aspects of life: spiritual, economic, social, and physical. All of this will be implemented through various participation methods and seminars.


We are happy to introduce the two members of the Tanga office – Edward Yeremia as Manager Zone TAG Western and Joshua Mwenda in the position of as Project Field Officer Zone.

Joshua Christopher Mwenda

They spent three months with EI teams in Mwanza and Iringa to learn about EI and how we work with churches and communities.  After this 3-month orientation training, as of June 2020 they are now in their Tanga office taking the first steps in relationship-building with the 147 TAG churches in the Western TAG Zone.


We are excited about this new venture and the opportunity for EI to share the love of Christ in Tanga. Both Edward and Joshua are from the Tanga Region and are looking forward to giving back to their community in this new partnership.
