The CLC Church
Less about fear, shame, and guilt and more focus on God's love, grace, and mercy. Removing the traditional expectations of church in Haiti and allowing the Gospel to penetrate the hearts of these young people.
We want to see HOPE REALIZED through the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
Our First Worship Service in Ouanaminthe
Nearly 400 people showed up solely by word of mouth when we held our first worship service in Ouanaminthe on January 19, 2020. You could definitely feel God's presence and the excitement of the young people! The photo above is from that “launch” service. While this gathering may not seem "special" to those of us in the U.S., there are two BIG things to notice here: 1) the majority of the crowd is under 25 years old, and 2) many of them are wearing t-shirts, shorts and hats! Both are extremely RARE sights in Haiti and the response was awesome!
Our first location is the Community Life Center of Ouanaminthe, located in the North East Department of Haiti. A few things the church is offering the young people of Ouanaminthe...
Our space in Ouanaminthe accommodates about 80-100 people comfortably - so far we’ve had up to 150+ fit in!
This location is part of a school building and opens up to one of the primary streets in town, giving us great exposure and access.
