Mission Statement: To prepare selected students to be servant evangelists to spread the gospel of Christ, and to minister to the needs of the Haitian people in the Spirit and likeness of Christ.”
Our main project is the Center for Biblical Studies, training Haitian men to be preachers. Our program combines Bible study, mentoring, and practical application in a 3-year program. The CBT is located just outside of Cap Haitien, in northern Haiti.
For about 30 years, the East Cobb church has supported the Owia Village Church of Christ in Owia, St. Vincent - financially as well as investing one-on-one contact through mission trips. As the church there has grown in numbers and in spiritual development, more and more leadership has come from within the local congregation there. In fact, the leaders of the church family now oversee the division of our financial support. We have become intimately supportive of the people and family at Owia.
Ciudad De Angeles
Ciudad de Angeles is a Christian children’s home on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. The home accepts young children who have been orphaned, abandoned or abused and gives them a permanent home on the campus. Our family here at East Cobb Church of Christ was the anchor congregation in establishing Ciudad de Angeles.
