Feeding Starving Kids In response to the hunger crisis in Liberia, Serve Africa provides cooked meals to kids on a weekly basis as of June 2020. These are kids from impoverished families due to lack of jobs and the Covide-19 crisis. Currently Serve Africa is feeding 250 kids per week. Our goal is to feed up to 1,000 starving children weekly at $1 per cooked meal.
Community Service Forty Seven volunteers from Serve Africa helped to package food at Meals from the Heartland in West Des Moines on September 24, 2020. Thanks to our volunteers and partners, representing 7 churches and organizations: Westover Baptist Church, Church of the Way, Walnut Creek Church, Cross Point Church, Oakwood Church, Gift of the Spirit Ministry, and Kim Hiscox Rentals. We appreciate our Board Member Kim Hiscox for organizing the event.

MISSION TRIP July 8 - 21, 2018
PASTORS' TRAINING Twenty two village pastors benefited from three days of quality instructional and bonding times in Liberia. The training which lasted for three days, July 10-12, 2018, covered Bible Doctrines; Preaching Principles and Methods; Pastoral Leadership; Evangelism; and Discipleship. It was held at Mt. Sinai Prayer Garden, near Liberia’s main capital, Monrovia. All twenty two pastors are in active ministries with at least five years of full time pastoral service. However, none of the pastors had the opportunity to acquire formal biblical training. This training was the first of its kind for them, and they indicated that it was an “eye opening experience” and the very first “significant pastoral empowerment” program they have ever been introduced to. In their feedback, they overwhelmingly expressed their need for additional training.
OUTREACH TO ORPHANS We visited fifty children during our July visit to Liberia. With more funding, we desire to regularize their feeding and healthcare support.
FUNDRAISING DINNER May 20, 2018 Our first African Cuisine Fundraising Dinner was a success with 35 guests in attendance.
