Education

Pokot Community Development

Through the AIC Bishop Birech College, the Africa Inland Church (AIC) is training African church leaders to proclaim and live the gospel in and through their local churches blessing all in the community. The college teaches courses in transformational development, mission, and other areas that help prepare African church leaders to pursue their calling.

Andrew & Amy Fields

Evangelical congregations in Colombia are hungry for well-trained leaders who can guide the people of God to live and love like Jesus. But good opportunities for theological education have not kept pace with the growth and needs of local congregations. The Colombian Biblical Seminary (FUSBC) in Medellin is addressing this need through quality pastoral training for future leaders throughout Colombia and Latin America.

Nathan & Nozomi Brownell

Many young people in Japan are struggling, despite material abundance, with matters related to the heart and soul. Many withdraw and become hopeless and too many end in terribly tragic situations. The church in Japan is having trouble reaching the next generation. Nathan and Nozomi Brownell are working in cooperation with the church to renew youth outreach across Japan.

Nathan and Nozomi have three sons: Kenneth, Raymond, and Luke.

The Brownells serve in partnership with Nihon Kirisuto Kyodan (the United Church of Christ in Japan).

Martha & Jaime Amaro

A child’s laughter peals through the air as her teacher uses wooden figurines to show the story of Daniel. Forty small hands raise and move as a worship song fills the room. The pungent smell of glue hangs in the air as a child squirts another glob onto his paper and covers it with cotton balls. His class is learning about the Israelites. The Children and Worship program shares God’s truths through a multi-sensory experience.

Peter & Patty Ford

A cool, salty sea breeze wafts through the crowded city streets and across the countryside of Lebanon, bringing relief from the warm climate. Yet, the climate between Middle Eastern Christians and their Muslim neighbors can be less balmy. As a minority population, Christians often face varying levels of discrimination, which can affect how they show respect and compassion to their Muslim neighbors.

Adrian & Bernardeth Bobb-Kelly

The east coast of Nicaragua is one of the poorest area of an already poor country. That's where Dr. Bernardeth Kelly Bent and pastor Adrián Bobb provide public health and medical services, as well as spiritual and pastoral education, to the population. They are the founders of Tabitha’s House Bluefields (THB), a ministry that works in partnership with the Moravian Church in Nicaragua. They have two children, Abebja and Abayomi.

Adrián and Bernardeth serve in partnership with Tabitha House.
