In March 2013, Kentucky Baptists sent a vision team to Sub-Saharan Africa with Baptist Global Response. Their goal? To establish a partnership between Baptist Global Response and Kentucky Baptists to meet emergency needs throughout the region.
The 41 nations of Sub-Saharan Africa are some of the neediest in the world. Conflicts among nations and poor economic conditions make disaster preparedness in Africa very difficult, leaving the people vulnerable to natural disasters. Kentucky Baptists will partner with missionaries serving in the region to help minister through disaster preparedness and community development projects focused on equipping and empowering the people of Sub-Saharan Africa.
The partnership will offer Kentucky Baptist churches and associations the opportunity to connect in strategic humanitarian ministries that are gateways for the gospel.
