Training Pygmy Lay Pastors in the Congo

International Ministries seeks to raise $5,500 to give Twa Pygmy church leaders in the Democratic Republic of the Congo the opportunity to complete one month of training in the lay pastors training program started in 2015.

Goal: $5,500

About This Mission Project

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Pygmy people are subject to systematic oppression. The reluctance of Bantu Christians to share their churches prevents most Pygmies from learning much about Jesus.

Pastor and Rose Mayala have built a relationship with the Twa Pygmy people of northwest Congo through literacy and agricultural training and church planting. This project will provide training for Pygmy lay pastors to help them lead their own churches and engage people in authentic Christianity.

Mission Project Specifics

International Ministries seeks to raise $5,500 to give Twa Pygmy church leaders in the Democratic Republic of the Congo the opportunity to complete one month of training in the lay pastors training program started in 2015.

This project will be managed by International Ministries missionary Miriam Noyes.

It is anticipated that this project will equip Twa church leaders to evangelize in their cultural contexts and to plant and lead churches to bring their people to Christ throughout the northwest Congo. It has the potential to benefit over 56,000 people in the Mai-Ndombe Province.
