Engage North Africa

 

Chad is a landlocked country in North Central Africa and because of this it’s one of the most underdeveloped African countries. The Sahara Desert dominates the landscape north of the capital N’djamena which is home to many people coming to the city from the villages looking for education and work. Join a disciple-making team that’s seeking to build relational bridges to these young opportunity seekers through a variety of community development projects, educational programs, and social networks. Serving in partnership with Chadian believers who are leading in many of these efforts you’ll have the opportunity to be the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus to the least reached.
