Burundi

Dates: July 13th-23rd, 2024

What is the vision of the YMCA of Burundi?

The Burundi YMCA is committed to exalt Christ by demonstrating the gospel through a weekly feeding program for children and proclaiming the gospel to them through various ministry outreaches.

Their current initiatives are:

  1. building a coffee shop to house their national offices, employ staff and host outreaches,
  2. establish an after school program for orphans with future plants for church planting
  3. continue to build the YMCA camp ministry which supports local churches and ministers to orphans.

July of 2024, The YMCA of Burundi has invited us to serve alongside them in hosting Youth Camp (children and teen), putting on a city wide soccer tournament for an evangelistic outreach, and ministering through a Pastor’s & Leaders conference. This trip is the first of our three year partnership with the YMCA of Burundi to see the gospel go forth in East Africa.

Who will go on this vision trip?

We are looking to bring a team of 10-12 people from around the country who love the Lord and His church and who believe in the strategy of planting churches in the YMCA. The various roles we will need consist of teachers, worship leaders, soccer coaches/assistants, friend-makers and servant-hearted followers of Jesus. In addition, we are looking for a sports director to coordinate the soccer tournament evangelistic outreach.
