We have recently started partnering with Yapelin, which is the national organisation of the Evangelical Church of Indonesia (GIDI), based in Papua. We are still at early stages in this journey, but have big dreams. GIDI has almost 2,000 congregations, with the majority in Papua and some in other islands of Indonesia.
With Yapelin we will be looking at building their capacity to manage programs in health, education and community livelihoods, as well as equipping and envisioning local churches for social transformation in their communities. This is a massive challenge.
We are currently at the start of fundraising for several initiatives in this partnership. Please click the links below to find out more about each one:
