Chapter Summary

This chapter demonstrates why and how distinctions between "religion" and "culture" are of particular concern to Pentecostalism in Africa in the manner in which it relates to transnational migration and mission. It explores three particular features of South-South transnational Pentecostalism that are relevant to the relationship between religion and culture: 1) In South-South Pentecostalism, cultural awareness is being developed by becoming transnational via Pentecostalism; 2) The South-South links of Pentecostalism made us realize the importance of this difference in the transnational trajectory and cultural mobility of its followers, because of the possibility of transcending national cultural boundaries; 3)These features of South-South Pentecostalism let us conclude that the role of Pentecostalism in shaping modern identities is less inscribed in aspirations of getting access to global flows or responding to the impact of processes of globalization, than in how to position oneself toward one's fellow citizens, relatives, governments, and national identity.

Keywords: Africa; South-South transnational Pentecostalism; transnational migration
