We empower the local church to break the cycle of poverty in the poorest and most marginalized communities in the world.

Our Wholistic Transformational Development Model

Economic Empowerment

Earning capacity and savings are the basis for alleviating physical poverty. When one can provide for his/her family, dignity and self-worth is restored.

Social Engagement

Social engagement is the basis for breaking the poverty cycle. We walk alongside the community leaders to identify the structural evil that perpetuates their circumstances.

Community Health

Health is the basis for life. Disease prevention and health promotion education is the only solution to restore community health in a wholistic approach.


Education is the basis for development. Our initiatives include community wide seminars and targeted educational interventions.

Where We Serve

Over the past 20 years, we have witnessed the miraculous and continue to see the kingdom of God here on earth. We are currently walking with 230 churches and 30 communities in 14 countries throughout Africa and the Caribbean, serving all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

3 Steps to Implement Sustainable
Transformational Development


Engage Local

We enter a community with the Lord’s guidance and ask that He reveal “men and women of peace”. We gather the local pastors and community leaders and cast vision together for their communities.


Invite Church

We partner with and work through the local church in a three-year commitment. During this time we equip and empower the church through an integrated development model that addresses the spiritual, social, and material areas of life.


Cultivate Community

 As the church is positioned to engage their community, individuals from within the church and community are transformed and begin to take complete ownership of the process.
