Benin Church Planting


There is a great need to plant churches across the border in Benin. Benin Church Planting will begin with a focus on the city of Ouidah. This is a city of 100,000 people that is often referred to as the twin city of Aneho, Togo. We believe that we must expand our team into Ouidah, Benin by 2022. This will be a multicultural, multiethnic, multigenerational team. In order to transform the very heart of Voodoo, we must plant churches in both cities. Without this, one city will continue to have a negative impact on the other. The church planting efforts will project out from the city into other people groups.
