Serve Africa was founded in response to poverty and with the goal to improve the quality of life for poor pastors and vulnerable children.
Nineteen years ago, Stephen and Florence Wonbenyakeh were driven to their home village in Liberia due to civil war. During that time, God used the couple to assist some village pastors in planting new churches. As they worked alongside the pastors, they saw that the pastors served under strenuous circumstances. The pastors had no study materials. They also had no means of income. And majority of them were uneducated. Stephen and Florence also witnessed pastors' kids go to bed hungry daily, slept on bare flood and were usually without clothes. Because of the severity of their state of poverty, the pastors could not afford to send their kids to school or feed them.
In response to this need, God gave Stephen and Florence a vision to reach out to rural pastors and underprivileged children. Serve Africa was consequently birthed to serve as the vehicle in this effort.
