About Congo Initiative
Congo Initiative (CI) is a Christ-centered global fellowship led by Congolese vision and united for the transformation of lives and communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Oppressive socio-political forces acting within and upon the DRC over the last two centuries have given rise to poor leadership and traumatized people, vulnerable and fragmented communities, and corrupt and unjust systems. In response to these issues, Congo Initiative educates and equips change-makers and models transformation by holistically renewing communities and promoting systemic justice in the DRC.
International Staff (missionaries) come to live and work with the CI community as members of a “New We” community, where we embody the Global Church in its diversity and unity. In this community, our identity as members of Christ’s global body is preeminent, allowing International Staff and Congolese staff and students to support one another on a journey of mutual transformation by God’s Spirit.
