MISSIONS & OUTREACH PROJECTS

As a church, our goal is to be irrationally generous. On this page, you’ll find projects that we are currently involved in that we believe can and will make a major impact on the people and communities they serve. If you have any questions, email Graham Greenwood.

BUILD RWANDA

The vocational skills training that Build Rwanda is aiming to provide is an essential part of the Government strategy to empower and develop the youth of Rwanda. 28% of Rwandese are between the ages of 16-30. Most do not have the opportunity to acquire a recognised skill. 45% of the workforce is involved in trades. The Government’s goal is to increase the number to 60%. Christian Life Assembly has a Memorandum of Understanding with the ministry to collaborate and achieve this through the Intango project. Here are some highlights of the work so far.

Financial Update: Phase 1 cost is $458,000.00. We are near completion with the balance required to complete of $ 114,000.00.

Sea Container:January of 2019, a 40-foot electrical container with an estimated wholesale value of $135,000 which included a 135 KVA generator, wire, LED fixtures and panels for phases 1, 2, and 3 of the Intango Project departed from Edmonton. The container is scheduled to arrive by the end of March 2019. An electrical wholesaler supplied the materials at less than half the wholesale cost. It’s remarkable to see new partners from the business community recognize and commit to the Intango Project.

Electrical Short-Term Mission Team: April 23 of 2019, the first Intango Project electrical team will head to Rwanda! They will work on the electrical for Phase 1. There is a large knowledge gap in Rwanda when it comes to electrical systems. We are grateful for the 4 technicians giving their time and resources to join us in Rwanda. We would like to thank the Electrical Contractor who sponsored 1 of their electricians to join the April team. Many individuals and businesses have contributed in making this electrical team a reality. This includes, drafting wiring plans, securing and tracking product, and financial support. Thank you to our large community of support.

January/February 2020: A Build Rwanda team heads to Rwanda! There is room for Electricians, Heavy Equipment Mechanics and finishing Carpenters. If you want to be part of this team, let us know! It’s an incredible opportunity to make a big difference, meet the remarkable Rwandese leadership team, and enjoy beautiful Rwanda.

January 2020 Vision Tour: During the second half of January we launch the first ever Build Rwanda Vision Tour, where our Canadian friends will be introduced to Christian Life Assembly, Intango Skills Training Center and to experience one of Africa’s finest gems. It will be 10 days you will never forget, where you will enjoy an African Safari and visit the mystical Virunga mountains and rainforest.

 

Your generous support for the Intango Project makes this possible. Thank you for investing in the youth of Rwanda.

THE HOPE FUND

WHAT IS IT?

Our goal as a church is to be generous.  To use what God has given us and to sow back into the great ministries we value and believe in.  The Hope Fund is a way where we go over and above our regular support for some great initiatives and partner in a stronger way with our global workers.  Extravagant goals require extravagant faith and next level generosity.  Thank you for going over and above your regular giving/tithing and being a part in making a difference in something eternal.  Below is a list of things we are praying and believing we can do. For more info, contact Graham Greenwood (graham.g@hopecity.ca).
