TEAM STRATEGY

With the unstable political climate in Congo, it is difficult to predict the direction WorldVenture's work will take in the future. The church is faced with the challenge of making the gospel relevant to people who live with the fears and uncertainties of government instability. The Lord continues to use compassion ministries such as the medical work of WorldVenture to bring comfort and hope to needy people. Often, a visit to the hospital or clinic is the first time people hear the good news of Christ.
