Where We Serve:
We carry out spiritual and development work in the African communities through a variety of programs in the areas of discipleship, education, family and community development. Through these avenues, we offer discipleship training, literacy training, conversational English, care for street children, vocational skills training, community health training, and education for orphans.
We are currently most active in Rwanda through our partnership with Africa Transformation Network – Rwanda (ATN-Rwanda).
Africa Transformation Network Rwanda (ATN-Rwanda) is a Rwandan Christian Non-Government Organization (NGO). ATN-Rwanda’s “Access Ministries” are the portal through which they serve Rwandan communities. These “Access Ministries” (Peace House, XMM Vocational Training Center, and Community Development) provide them with opportunities to build spiritual relationships with Rwandan men and women of peace. You can find more information about ATN-Rwanda through their website @ http://atn-rwanda.org.

Additionally, personal solicitations may be made by phone, mail, email, and personally with business and personal acquaintances.
Why We Serve:
We serve African communities in the name of Jesus and for the glory of God. We seek no honor or benefit for ourselves. Our sole desire is to be obedient to our Lord Jesus as we make obedience disciples and care for those in need.
