About Our Partner

Presbyterian Community of Congo (CPC)

Bob and Kristi Rice began as PC(USA) mission workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo in January 2010, where they serve with the Presbyterian Community of Congo (CPC). In a country that has been ravaged by years of conflict, the CPC has continued to witness to the good news of God’s word through a holistic ministry. There are more than 700 parishes in the Kasai region where the Rices serve alongside this vibrant community of faith. Bob and Kristi serve as consultants and colleagues with the CPC, involved in visioning and implementing new initiatives in Christian education and evangelism, including the development of curriculum and traveling throughout the region as members of the evangelism team. New initiatives they have been involved in and are excited about include distributing Bibles, producing Christian literature, and equipping three rural pastoral institutes. Bob brings a passion for evangelism and building up the church. Kristi also serves with community development and microloan projects connected to the CPC as she seeks to empower the poor and demonstrate God’s love.

The Impact

“God has woven Africa into our hearts and called us to serve him there.” With deep faith and a love for the people of Africa, Bob and Kristi are helping the Presbyterian Community of Congo be faithful in its mission through strengthening its evangelism and training programs.
