Indigenous Church Planting

New Covenant Missions recruits, trains, sends and equips Indigenous church planters to be strategically sent to the darkest places in Africa. we have created a sponsorship program so that individuals and churches in the u.s. can be directly involved with our indigenous teams on the field.

Through this sponsorship program, we provide the Church Planter families with the basic costs of living.

we continue fundraising in order to equip them with various tools such as seed money to launch small shops, mountain bikes or motorbikes, portable solar powered Jesus Film kits, solar powered audio bibles, discipleship training, Muslim evangelism training, community health evangelism training, community development projects (public latrines, fresh water, medical services), and whatever else it takes to empower the church to grow!

Our goal is to plant locally sustained churches. Typically, the church planters go into an unreached area and work for three years to make disciples and train up leaders. Once a local church is established, the leadership raises money to sustain the church.

Once the church is sustainable, the church planter begins to plant another church in a different area. Currently none of the churches planted by our church planters require outside support. What is even more exciting is that every church is planted with the “DNA” of multiplication and are immediately focused on evangelizing nearby villages and planting their own 2nd and 3rd generation churches!

As long as the Church Planter family is willing to continue moving and planting churches we continue to support them in their calling. The relationship built between the Church Planter family and their American sponsor truly is the most priceless part of the strategy as it ministers to both families. Sponsors receive quarterly personal reports and are given opportunities to visit, pray for, and equip their Church Planters.

 

The UNREACHED COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT Project is designed to create a relationship between churches in the U.S. and Indigenous Church Planters and the unreached communities they serve in Africa.

Our desire is to empower groups of believers in the U.S. to join hands with our Indigenous Church Planting Teams in Africa to see God’s love brought to the DARKEST places in Africa!

That is why we make it possible for individuals to sponsor church planters in unreached communities for as little as $35 per month!

How does it work?

Perhaps you would consider hosting a sponsorship event at your church, business, or home group?

One of our staff members would love to share the incredible stories and videos we have from the field!

Will you join us to mobilize the U.S. church to reach the unreached? Every church planting partner receives photos, testimonies, and quarterly reports of the amazing things God is doing to reach the unreached in Africa.

You may even have opportunities to visit the project on the field!

testimony from a real estate broker participating in the unreached community engagement project

"Honoring God in our business has been always been of ultimate importance in terms of being filled with honesty, respect, and integrity.  Several years ago, we were moved by God to expand our practice of incorporating Jesus into our business.  This began by taking opportunities to give witness to God moving in the lives of our clients and encouraging them to trust God to provide for their needs.  The Holy Spirit continued to impress upon us the need to go deeper in us incorporating God into our business by beginning to financially supporting  work through our business by giving to New Covenant Missions.  We started with intermittent giving but have recently decided to place our trust in God’s provision and make a consistent commitment to supporting the planting of churches in areas of the world where Jesus is not known.God has revealed to us that he wants us to be fully faithful to him in all aspects of our lives, including our business.  Faithfully honoring this call is fun and exciting to see how God uses us to make a difference for his kingdom in our community and in Kenya!" Michael Smith

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Community Development Projects

Showing the LOVE of Jesus in a practical, holistic way!

During the church planting process research is done to discover the various needs of the community. We then hire local indigenous people or partner with other local development organizations to provide fresh water wells, public latrines, sanitary meat slaughter houses, community health education, medical service through medical missions, emergency food and water relief in drought situation, and more.

Quotes from barnabas expedition trip participants:

“These are people who live day to day with what they have. Tomorrow is not promised. We have much to learn from them. Watching them, I realized that we must come to God in that same state: empty hearts that need to be filled—hungry, desperate, and wide-eyed with anticipation. Our empty, aching souls cannot be filled with anything other than God. He satisfies our present need. We must come flooding His feet with open outstretched arms to receive His goodness, mercy, love, and glory — even if it is just a sack-full.”
– Ayaan

“To sit before these men and women was deeply humbling. Though they often lacked material goods and political freedom, they have experienced spiritual provision and the very power of the Holy Spirit in abundance throughout their decades of service to the Lord. Because of this, and because of their faithful obedience, many souls in Ethiopia have been reconciled to the Lord. ”
– Jason

Medical Missions

New Covenant Missions has partnered with INDIGENOUS ETHIOPIAN MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS to send out short term indigenous medical mission teams to provide free medical care to thousands of people in some of the poorest villages in the world!

Our strategy is to partner the medical professionals with our church planter teams for 4-7 clinic days to provide physical and spiritual healing to people with little or no access to medical care.

On average, these missions only cost about $8,000 to serve 2,000–3,000 people!

When possible, we also invite medical professionals from the U.S. to join us on these missions! If you are a medical professional and interested in joining us on a trip please contact us for more info!

Help fund a mission!
The majority of our medical teams are local Ethiopian medical professionals. On average, it only costs $8,000 to do a 5 day mission that serves 2,000-3,000 people!
 

In order to make these missions possible we need the funding for their lodging, food, and travel. Would you consider donating today?
 

 

Campus–Based Missions

worship evasue bahir dar_2.jpg

The US Student Volunteer Movement of 1866 was one of the most successful missionary recruiting organizations of all time. We believe the same thing is about to happen in Ethiopia and your are invited to be a part of it!

During a visit to an Evangelical Students Union (EvaSUE) meeting in Dilla, Ethiopia, we experienced a taste of what God was doing as we witnessed over 1,000 students passionately worshiping and seeking God only to find out that there were over 40,000 more students in Ethiopia with the same passion for Jesus that were meeting together regularly.

How does it work?

The Government is sending missionaries!

In Ethiopia the government chooses where each student will attend University. One of the Universities we are working is in a region that is nearly 100% Islamic and there are 400 evangelical students attending. The Campus–Based Missions program is empowering them to share the Gospel in this Unreached region!

NCM has partnered with the Evangelical Students Union of Ethiopia (EvaSUE) to provide a program that involves discipling students, weekly fellowship events, community outreaches, short–term mission trips, leadership trainings, Bible study programs, and more!

Additionally, we actively partner EvaSUE students with our local Church Planters to strategically reach the communities they are working in together!

You can partner with us to ensure the EvaSUE Campus–Based Missions program is available at every University in Ethiopia!

 

Sponsor an indigenous Campus-Based Missions Program

There are a lot of costs associated with the Campus-Based Missions Program, house rent for the Program Leader, discipleship materials, worship facility rentals, community evangelism events, short term mission costs (travel, food, lodging), leadership trainings, and more!

We require the students to raise at least 50% of their budget every year. Your one time or monthly donation not only helps to fill the gap of the other 50% but it also helps us to begin programs in Universities that don’t have them yet!
