Andrew Murray (9 May 1828 â€“ 18 January 1917) was a South African writer, teacher, and Christian pastor. Murray considered missions to be "the chief end of the church."
Andrew pastored churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town and Wellington, all in South Africa. He was a champion of the South African Revival of 1860.
In 1889, he was one of the founders of the South African General Mission (SAGM), along with Martha Osborn and Spencer Walton. After Martha Osborn married George Howe, they formed the South East Africa General Mission (SEAGM) in 1891. SAGM and SEAGM merged in 1894. Because its ministry had spread into other African countries, the mission's name was changed to Africa Evangelical Fellowship (AEF) in 1965. AEF joined with SIM in 1998 and continues to this day.
He died on 18 January 1917, four months before his eighty-ninth birthday. He was so influenced by Johann Christoph Blumhardt's MÃ¶ttlingen revival that he included a portion of Friedrich ZÃ¼ndel's biography at the end of With Christ in the School of Prayer. Over the years he has influenced many, including Jessie Penn-Lewis, a key figure in the 1904-1905 Welsh Revival. His writings have greatly influenced the writings of both Watchman Nee and Witness Lee.
