Urban Land Purchases

The congregation in the capital city of Freetown does not have the capability to purchase land upon which to build a church. This project will purchase land for building a worship center as a fund-matching agreement, a visible presence to others where Christ is proclaimed.

Chapel Roofs

As new churches are being planted, buildings have been constructed with grass roofs. These don’t last long and will eventually cause the building to crumble, so metal roofs need to be put into place. This project will provide roofing materials for 7 chapels in each of the 3 districts, a total of 21 chapel roofs. Funding will include zinc, boards, assorted nails, roofing nails and transport. Local people will provide the mud bricks, food, and labor. Note: This is a revenue dependent project and can only be done when funds are given.

Evangelism Outreach

The church in Sierra Leone has recognized various factions pulling people away from the truths of Scripture. This project kicks up the evangelism effort by allowing teams to hold open air meetings in all districts of Sierra Leone, providing teaching and hand-outs to participants.
