What is the Malachi Project?

The Malachi Project was developed to preserve the moving stories of faithful African American believers throughout the last three centuries and to inspire a generation of young adults in the African American community to live lives of wholehearted abandonment to Jesus Christ.

The Malachi Archives showcase stories of men and women in black history who fasted and prayed, shaping the history of their generations by the power and love of God.
