Our Story

Since its inception, Africa Renewal, birthed through Gaba Community Church, has reached out to vulnerable, lost, hurting people who desperately need the change that begins with faith in Jesus Christ.  People who don’t have access to even the basic necessities of life.  Overwhelming poverty, witchcraft, and other false gods were common in Gaba then, and still are today.  As a result of their love for God and gratitude for His salvation, Pastor Peter Kasirivu and three other young men stepped out in faith and stepped in to engage in a spiritually dark world.  

Currently Africa Renewal reaches over 7000 children, youth, and adults in more than 30 communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Over 650 churches have been planted.  Children have access to education, medical care, leadership training, and spiritual discipleship.  Young adults are completing advanced education and becoming Christian Leaders who follow in our founder’s footsteps, going out to engage in the community around them.  Pastors receive theological and leadership training to help them better shepherd their congregations and make disciples of Jesus.  Families, communities, the country, and the world are experiencing renewal as God is working through Africa Renewal.
