It unearths a connection between an increasing feminization of practices and narratives within this church and the emergence of an ideology of return to Africa linked both to eschatological beliefs and to notions of ‘mission,’ ‘example,’ and ‘success.’ Th e article shows the advantage of a multi-sited ﬁ eldwork in the study of transnational religion, as well as the changing nature of religious institutions in today’s world, in which socio-political dynamics in the migrants’ new settings both aﬀ ect and are aﬀ ected by what happens in the headquarters of their religious institution.
