New Covenant Christian Church, Haiti
In 2016 our church helped to start a church called New Covenant Christian Church in the city of Gonaives, Haiti. We worked in partnership with pastor Simprius from Haiti to strategically begin a church in a community that was desperate for hope. Gonaives is the third largest city in Haiti and its residents are stricken with poverty, malnutrition and unemployment. Our goal with starting the church was to introduce hope to the people through the good news of Jesus.
The hope we wish to bring to the people of Gonaives is twofold. First, we believe with great confidence that Jesus promises us that he will provide an eternal place in paradise when we walk with Him and love Him. This gives hope to people, especially those whose living conditions on earth are so deplorable. Secondly, hope can be found on earth with the help of Jesus as well. Through the church’s ministry we are seeking to educate families on hygiene and sustainable farming/business techniques. Our aim is to help them attain a better life on earth and in the life to come.
