Between 2011 and 2015, a team of researchers funded by the Tyndale House Foundation carried out the Africa Leadership Survey. Guided by Robert J. Priest, a team of scholars from eleven African countries surveyed over 8300 African Christians. The survey worked with a knowledgeable sample of mostly college-level educated respondents who could understand the 93-item questionnaire and were also connected to grassroots organizations. The respondents were from three countries representing linguistic regions of Africa, namely Kenya (Anglophone), Angola (Lusophone) and Central Africa Republic-CAR (Francophone).
