This article examines how the Pentecostal movements in Africa and most especially in Nigeria are experiencing fast growth and how African Pentecostals are speaking on the global scene, especially in Europe and America in the twenty-first century. This kind of Pentecostal reverse mission from Africa to the Western countries that brought Christianity to Africa in the eighteenth century is not without strengths and weaknesses. This article unveils the nature of the Nigerian Pentecostal movements in the diaspora and how much impact the movements are making in the Western cultures of Europe and America. The passion of the African immigrants’ churches in the West is a clarion call to the indigenous churches of the Western countries that there is a need to work together with Africans in fulfilling the Great Commission. Indigenous churches in the West must recognize those Global South churches that hold sound biblical positions to advance the kingdom of God in the world and especially in cultures that seem more antagonistic to God’s truth in the twenty-first century.
