THIS COMMUNITY IS ONE OF OUR SPONSORED COMMUNITIES click to learn more
Team Zambia is a community transformation ministry that God will use to impact a multitude of areas such as extreme poverty, gender based violence (GBV), oppression of women, spiritual education, and discipleship to name just a few. This is a holistic approach to sharing the gospel—where those who are hungry now have access to food, those who are enslaved have access to freedom, and those who are blind have the light of Jesus shining in the darkness where hope is restored.
We are praying for those that will join us in this mission to transform the community of Chibolya in Chongwe, Zambia. Those who might have a burden for orphans or children, education, HIV/AIDS awareness, food and agricultural (small scale), entrepreneurial training, Biblical training, medical, spiritual healing/counseling, or addiction recovery; along with those who have the same burden for women/girls/prostitutes, men or discipleship as we do! Or there might be something you have a burden for that we haven't mentioned! Let's talk!
Ministering to girls and women who are prostituting, and other vulnerable women, we pray to see transformed lives through relationship, Bible study and a future drop-in center or safe-house as the need arises. We will also help women address the spiritual and emotional healing many of them need due to abuse, rape and other issues. We see the use of women's conferences and other workshops along with Biblical training and developing deep relationships with the women and girls as some of the tools that will bring freedom and wholeness and life in Christ.
We also focus on ministry to the men of Zambia by working with them on sustainability programs and community development opportunities. This will include many of the things stated above but for men, like men's/Pastor's conferences, Bible study, teaching and real, honest, open, relationships. We embrace this challenge with Jesus, as well. With this question to guide us... What has God called men to be? Not culture, not tradition, not circumstances and not ourselves, but God.
When Chibolya has been transformed by the power of God, no one will be invisible and everyone will have access to food, freedom, and forgiveness.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.
EVALUATE and ENGAGE
We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.
As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
Clean Water for Chibolya
Situated in one of the poorest countries in sub-Saharan Africa, this community of approximately 4,500 people face a number of economic and humanitarian challenges. Specifically, they lack access to clean, safe water and as recently as November 2016 they had no water at all.
