WORD CHRISTIAN CENTRE
AWM has three churches in the Gem area. Our vision is to equip, mobilise and empower our Church for the work of the ministry. To worship our God and to reach the unchurched in the community as we win our community to Jesus.
Our pastors are the caregivers of our congregations. Apart from feeding the flocks on Sunday, they also attend home cell groups every Wednesday. Part of their role is to visit the sick both at home and in the hospital.
This group was started to help meet the spiritual, mental and physical needs of men. To help men to connect with God and His Word to know who they are In Christ. A group where men can fellowship and encourage one another and where they have opportunities to grow in their faith, by using their gifts and talents. To mobilize men to be active throughout the church.
Children and Youth are vital to the church. All 3 churches have a vibrant Children's Ministry. Our goal is to lead children to Christ so that they can go out and influence their world and lead others to Christ making a difference in their community and world.
Women in the area we work are suppressed and have low self-esteem. When the husband dies the woman is left behind with children and no hope as she does not know what to do. We want to help these women reach their potential and become self-sufficient. Various projects have been implemented one of which is ‘Women of Valour Catering
Group’. An African woman knows how to cook and to do it well. The women have been given catering equipment, tents and plastic chairs. They either hire out the equipment or hire out their services as a catering group. This brings in money which is shared amongst them. The women have stepped up and now see themselves as having worth. Our aim is to continue implementing such projects to help the women come out of poverty.
Our vision is to mobilize the youth to go out into the community winning the lost to Jesus. Our aim is to help the youth and children reach their full potential ready to make a difference in their community and world. Our youth are actively involved in outreaches and weekly go into the community to help the widows and elderly. Annual youth camps are held in December to help equip youth spiritually, emotionally and physically.
