Chapter Summary

In studying the role of African instituted churches, there is a tendency to focus on the leadership structures and the dynamics of their development and spread. Scholars have paid less attention to the importance of AICS for African youth. It is this lacuna that this present chapter intends to fill, using three case studies. The emergence of AICS is complex. As just noted, these movements can be seen as reactions against colonialism or as renewals of African religious beliefs and practices. The chapter identifies the contributions of AICS to Emuhaya District youth. It attempts to map out how these contributions have been produced here and in other countries where the three sampled AICS have been established. The chapter concludes that the AICS have been useful religions for young people.
