STRENGTHENING THE CHURCH
We believe that the church is the hope of the world. We believe that a community is only as healthy as its churches, and it is local church leaders who best understand the needs in the community. We therefore consult with local pastors in the Zambian communities we serve in order to determine how we can help strengthen their churches. In particular, Haven of Hope provides much-needed resources for congregations and facilitates annual training events for church leaders. Since 2007, hundreds of pastors have been equipped through in-depth study of the Word, topical workshops, and marriage enrichment seminars featuring diverse speakers. As part of these events, community-wide services have led to hundreds of commitments for Christ, with local pastors providing followup and offering new believers opportunities to grow in their faith through Bible study.
How can you get involved?
There are ongoing opportunities to serve the Zambian church. We especially seek to connect pastors in the United States with pastors in Zambia, so that they might share ideas and resources and pray for each other. We are always looking for church leaders with an interest in pastoral training. If that describes you, we would love for you to join us on our next trip to Zambia; we can also plan a trip of any size for members of your congregation. Additionally, you can support this part of our mission by praying for revival in the Zambian church, both in the communities we serve and across the country. Pray that God would strengthen His church.
