The Local Church

Two churches, one heart

Grace Church in Titanyen and Hope Church in Cite Soleil are more than local congregations–they are the spiritual backbone to all the work we do in their communities. Grace and Hope Churches are Haitian-led, volunteer-driven, and committed to faithfully serving two of the most vulnerable populations in Haiti.

Hope Church (Cite Soleil)

Hope Church has two pastors (Dieudonne and Jocelyn) who are devoted to bringing the love of Jesus to Cite Soleil since the church first opened its’ doors in February 2016. Their love and compassion for the people of Cite Soleil is evident in their commitment to be in Cite Soleil as much as possible and serving those who attend Hope Church, as well as the surrounding community.  

 During this time the gang wars have made it impossible to have church services at the original Hope Church location but the pastors have found a new location in Cite Soleil to have services.  The number of people attending church has grown tremendously during this time and everyone is encouraged and strengthened through God’s words of hope and love.  Also, everyone is served a large meal after the service each week.  The pastors and church leaders are seeing a renewed hunger and desire to know God and find hope and life in Him.  In the last 3 months, there have been 15 people who have come to Christ and/or been baptized.  Please continue to pray for our pastors and churches as they bring the love and hope of Jesus to all.

Grace Church (Titanyen)

Hope Church opened in 2014 and is led by Pastor Felix. Grace serves as a beacon within the Titanyen community hosting weddings, funerals, graduations, and other milestone events. On Saturday mornings Grace Church hosts “Kid’s Club”, a ministry founded and led by students of Grace Academy. On Sundays, Grace’s incredible worship band inspires hundreds of members and visitors (including our Grace Kids) to lift their voices in praise, and everyone is served a hot meal after the service each week.

In the last 3 months, 88 people have given their lives to Jesus at Grace Church and 5 have been baptized. God is doing really big things at and through the Church and we believe the best is yet to come!
