The Ref presence in this country is due to efforts undertaken by the Christian and Missionary Alliance. The first mission station was in Kankan in Guinea; from there American missionaries moved to the Ivory Coast and settled in Bouaké in 1930. The first baptisms took place in 1932. Work expanded in the following years to Bocanda, M’Bahiakro, Toumodi, and Dimbokro. In the early 40s a Bible school was established with Baoulé as the teaching language. Further outreach took place in subsequent years. In 1955 the first African pastor, Diéké Koffi Joseph, was ordained. Four years later the church was granted autonomy by the central direction of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in the USA. In 1995 it adopted its present name.
