Meet Our Team


We are made up of volunteers who are committing time and other resources to serve the communities of Africa. At this moment most of our activities are focused in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Through our actions, our words, and especially the Word of God, we strive to bring about hope based in God in a place where many had lost all hope. Please reach out here if you are interested in joining our team.
