Pastor Leon and his wife Adolphine returned to Kinshasa in April of 2016 to start New City Fellowship of Kinshasa. NCF-Kinshasa was able to construct a covered meeting space and hold their first worship in June of 2016. Leon has already identified an Associate Pastor to work with the church, with a long range goal of training him to become the senior pastor. This church plant is in one of the poorest communities in the city.
Pastoral training and Bible Institute: Part of the mission of New City-Kinshasa is to help teach additional pastors and church planters to develop and plant other like-minded churches. Third Millennium Ministries, an international theological and Bible training program developed by Seminary professors from around the world, is partnering with us to translate their program into French and provide New City Fellowship-Kinshasa with the materials to become a local Bible Institute for pastors. Classes started in October, 2018 for 25 pastors from 6 different churches.
Good Samaritan Ministries: NCF-Kinshasa has a desire to see several community based ministries established. This group of outreach ministries will be committed to bringing God’s justice and compassion to the poor in the Mikondo district.
In November of 2016, through a generous donation, NCF-K was able to purchase new sewing machines and start sewing classes that will become a source of income for women.
Other areas for future ministry development include:
Nehemiah Projects – A multi-faceted job training program that will equip many desperate young men with needed job skills in a country that currently has a 90% unemployment rate. Training may include furniture making, automotive repair, painting, welding, computers, and landscaping
Orphan Care – Operate a small orphanage on the CEFOREA compound for some of the many orphans in the surrounding community
Pastor Leon Mukendi
Daily Programs for widows, single mothers, prostitutes and other abused young women
Medical Clinic – Expand the current medical clinic, “La Compassion,” to provide services at the CEFOREA compound. This will service the children and poor in the various ministries, as well as the community in general
Lamb of God Christian High School – A high school that will provide a good Christian education, a food program and basic medical care for children in the immediate community, serving as a school for secondary education for the 3 other affiliated Lamb of God primary schools in Kinshasa.
