We partner with church planters to plant new churches in unreached towns and villages in Liberia. The Liberia Evangelical Baptist Convention (LEBACO) is our key partner in this initiative. LEBACO is the most active church planting movement in Liberia, planting at least 10 churches annually.
Church planters and short term missionaries are trained and sent into the field regularly. Amidst deplorable roads, these church planters remained committed to taking the Gospel to unreached persons, no matter the constraints and challenges. They use motorcycles to cross creeks, rivers, and makeshift bridges (also known as monkey bridges). Other church planters walk by foot, up to 100 miles. Some go through the jungles. All this they do in obedience to the Great Commission.
SERVE AFRICA's goal is to empower these church planters through training support, provision of materials, finances, and other critically needed assistance that will make them more functional and effective. Of their needs, motorcycles remain prominent. With a motorcycle, travels are less difficult.
We need partners - seminary professors, pastors, educators, missionaries, students - who can come on a short-term or long-term basis to provide support to these men and women who are in the field for Christ. Some areas of partnership include Pastors' Conference Speakers; Pastors' Trainers; working alongside a church planter to understand the Liberian culture; and helping with study resources. Also, your church could consider adopting one of our new church plants, or sponsoring one of our church planters.
