CHRIST'S INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY
Gabriel & Lily Kisanga founders
By the way, I'd like to let you know that we've already planted twelve churches in the past, just in the D.R.C and eleven prayer groups where so many people meet. Some of churches that are under our leadership are located in the remote area in the Congo, where there are a strong need of traditional medecin and medical tools. We have one church in Kimvula area, at about 320 Km from Kinshasa, in Kindongolosi exactly. Although there are so many dangerous snakes, there is no potable water in Kimvula, no hospital or clinic, neither drugstore in many area of Kimvula such as Kindongolosi, where we have planted a church. In the South-West of the Congo, in Inga, there are all bunch of black flies which cause ONCHOCERCOSE. This provokes bad diseases: blindness and skin sick. Many missionaries would not like to go to these areas because of its wildness.
So, we are training pastors and leaders from big cities, small cities and remote areas as well as. We are hosting church planting events in many places to equip church planters, that they may minister among their people, in their context and in their own culture. From 2004 to 2021, we have trained about 6500 pastors and leaders in Angola, Brazzaville-Congo, D.R.Congo, Central Africa Republic, and in France(Paris).
Regarding his family, Pastor Gabriel has five kids: two boys and three girls; and they are also taking care of three children from distress families. Some people from his church care for orphans as well. In Kindele church, they have a community school for children from poor families and orphans. There are at least 120 children attending Kindele school and 101 kids at Lobo orphanage.
Beside this, he's also running two seminaries, one in Kinshasa and another in Pointe-Noire. Pastors and leaders are attending this seminary for three years to get their BA in theology. He teaches Hermeneutics, Pastoral theology, Homiletic and Greek also !
The vision of the Centre International d'Evangelisation et des Missions, which is also called the Christ's International Ministry is to evangelize the Congo and the surrounding region by planting churches, training pastors and leaders and challenge these church planters to establish churches in their origin areas. To spread the Gospel in Central Africa by:

Planting churches is an effective method that the Lord and His early disciples used to evangelize to extend the Kingdom.

Church is the best place to gather believers for worship, prayers, Bible study, and prepare them for the Harvest.
