Africa ICBC Construction
In the Community, By the Community (ICBC), a holistic ministry model, seeks to establish stronger, healthier communities in Eswatini, Africa. Each ICBC centers around a local church that contains a pastor's home, a church building, and a preschool. By living in the community, the pastor and his wife build a church that seeks to provide evangelism and discipleship, clean water, food, education, and health care to those in impoverished areas, with a special focus on orphan care. The ICBC preschools provide education, security, a sense of belonging, and one meal a day for 30-40 children. Children who attend an ICBC preschool typically progress to primary school testing 1-2 years ahead of non-ICBC students.

Skills development and job-relevant training are part of the offerings at an ICBC. Sustainability projects are developed so each ICBC can become self-sustaining within two years after completion. CLC works with our Eswatini partner, Pastor Kevin Ward, and Challenge Ministries to develop and sustain ICBCs.

GSV Impact:  Last year's GSV investment provided funds to launch 5 new ICBCs.

Make an Impact through god-sized vision

As you read about all the projects completed over the past year, please know that none of this could have been accomplished without your support. Every time you give to CLC, your generosity is not only making an impact in our local neighborhoods but all around the world.

Let’s celebrate all that God has done and all that He will continue to do!
