Democratic Republic of Congo
The Democratic Republic of Congo’s greatest blessing is also its greatest curse. It is the home front of the conflict mineral wars. The Congolese have witnessed some of the worst crimes against humanity including greed, corruption, internal displacement, recruitment of child soldiers, ethnic hatred, mass rape and mutilation.
Whatever is happening physically is a result of what is happening spiritually. Therefore, prayer is foundational to bring about a lasting change to the DRC: forgiveness, unity, peace, healing and restoration.
Discipleship and Pastor Training
When indigenous pastors have a solid Biblical foundation, they have the confidence to launch indigenous church planting movements. Discipling rural pastors is the backbone to advancing the Kingdom of God throughout all of Africa.
Orphans and Child Soldiers
The orphan crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo is unlike any other in Africa. Orphans are often neglected by family members, then being forced to fend for themselves. Rebel militias are all too eager to recruit child soldiers, even as young as eight years old. Our goal is to reach them first or find and rehabilitate them.
Part of preaching and living out the Gospel message is to meet tangible physical needs. It is our goal to teach sustainable micro-enterprise and development projects. These projects are based on principles revolving around the Word of God.
