in South Sudan
About Our Partner
The Presbyterian Church of South Sudan
Since 2012 The Outreach Foundation has been visiting the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan to accompany it in its mission to build a strong country through healthy churches and church-based schools. Civil war in late 2013 put many of the projects of the church on hold. As people fled to camps for Internally Displaced Persons or to refugee camps in neighboring countries, congregations and parishes have sprung up. Faithful pastors are preaching hope to those who long for peace. Former teachers volunteer to teach children and adults in make-shift schools. The Outreach Foundation is providing Bibles and hymnals to the believers in the camps and teaching materials for the temporary schools. We carry out these ministries in collaboration with the church at the national level, and with partner churches in nearby Egypt and Ethiopia.
To a war-weary people, Rebuilding Hope in South Sudan will strengthen faith as people receive Bibles and hymnals; it will empower the church in South Sudan to educate children and adults through study materials and teacher training; and it will build communities that have been torn apart by war through trauma healing workshops.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $200,000 to address needs requested by the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan: Bibles, hymnals, education, trauma healing, and emergency relief.
