Our partner presbyteries, the Nganza and Tshibashi Presbyteries, belong to the CPC (Communaute Presbyterienne au Congo) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are located in the Kananga area.
The partnership was formally established under the guidelines of the PC(USA) in 2004. It was renewed in 2009 with a five year commitment.
We have grown much closer in Christ through our partnership and commit ourselves to one another with renewed zeal for the work of Christ throughout the world.
Congo Team reports our first school , Bupole, is now under construction. We give thanks to God and to all who have helped. We continue to raise funds for the second school, Baolonga.
