Christ International Ministry serves two main ministries: training pastors and planting churches that plant churches.
Moreover, every church must naturally take care of orphans and children in distress according to James 1.27. Thus, CIM exercises holistic ministry in order to care for orphans and homeless children.
I. Leaders training
Since its foundation in January 16, 2004, the CIM has been able to train 6500 pastors and leaders. This through its two faculties of theology established in Kinshasa as in Pointe-Noire. In addition to the theological teachings, the conferences are hosted from time to time in different towns and areas of the D.R.Congo as well as in other countries of Central Africa region. This is to allow candidates who cannot travel to access our training in their natural environments.
The goal is to equip pastors and encourage them to plant churches in their respective communities.
II. Planting churches that plant churches.
It is inescapably recognized that church planting is the most effective method of evangelism. This is the method of the early church and it enables to bring Christians together for proper Christian education. Christians gathered in the same church could benefit from an appropriate training and an adequate preparation so that they are sent on the different missionary fields.
Actually, we have already planted twelve churches in the DRC and eleven prayer groups where so many people meet. Some of churches that are under our leadership are located in the remote areas of the DRC, where there is a great need for medical aid.
III. Children Holistic Ministry.
True religion according to the Holy Scriptures is to care for orphans and other people in distress. This is part of the exercise of the ministry of the word. It is a natural task of every church.
James 1.27:"religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world".
In fact, Christ International Ministry launched an elementary school in 2008 to provide free education to children from families in distress. Our community school in Kindele, a neighborhood south of Kinshasa, has 120 students. The majority of students attend our church located in the same place. In addition to school education, we provide Christian education to all our students.
Apart from school education for children from underprivileged families, the CIM takes care of orphans and homeless children by offering them daily meals, clothing, medical care, even better, a framework for sleeping and living in community with other children and Christian educators. For this, we work in collaboration with Lobo orphanage there are 101 children.
Over four years ago, we purchased a property that we are fitting out to accommodate 120 homeless children.
