Congo Summer Bible Camps
About this Mission Project
In the Congo, there is a high percentage of youth and children who are often neglected by the church. Sadly this is happening all over the Congo.
The Baptist Convention of Congo (CBCO) wants to start a new push to reach this generation with the gospel through summer Bible camps. It’s a vital way of training children and gives teachers more experience for the future when new Sunday schools are established.
Each community that hosts a camp will be expected to contribute food and lodging, as well as volunteers and facilities. This will empower them to hold more Bible camps in the future and raise awareness of the church in each community.
- $100 funds a camp at an urban site.
- $250 funds camp leadership and supervision.
- $500 provides recreational equipment for multiple camp sites.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $3,150 to minister to the children and youth of the Congo through summer Bible camps. When this project began in 2012, there were 1,500 children involved. Word has spread, and now 2,000 children want to participate!
This project will be managed by missionary Miriam Noyes, who has taken it over from Katherine and Wayne Niles. It is anticipated that this project will lead hundreds of children to Christ, cultivate future leaders of the church in the Congo and make those involved contributing members of their communities.

Participation in summer Bible camps in the Congo has exploded. Resources are scarce, as parents are unable to help pay to feed their children. Project leaders will use these funds to accommodate all of the children that come seeking Christ.
