“Our work is only the expression of the love we have for God”- Mother Theresa
The Africa Christian Youths Development Foundation seeks to address the impacts of poverty, social injustice and imbalances, conflict and social dislocation in communities, including their root causes, where we live and work. It is our believe and faith that as we continue to address these problems from their roots causes, we will also proffer practical solutions which when accepted in good faith and translated into positive actions, would become indices for authentic growth, social transformation and genuine development. To achieve this, we will continue to collaborate with others in local, National, Regional and International Initiatives to strategize and develop cultures and practices in which we share and apply our experiences and learning.
Our mission is to seek out those who are inclined to listen to God’s Voice and lead them into a mature relationship with Jesus Christ through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Our challenge is to connect people to Christ Jesus and to each other for world-class Christian living. Before you leave, please take just one minute to read our Statement of Faith.
We see ourselves as people filled with talents, assests and capacities that are ever evolving. As we constantly recognize, claim, develop and share our gifts and talents, others are invited into this God-given process. Through this, we present healing, wholeness, forgiveness, light, hope, renewal and transformation to our communities as God enlightens us through his Word and Works.
