World Venture's Senegal team is currently involved in church planting among the rural Serere and urban populations, translation of the Bible into Wolof, leadership training through the Evangelical Theological Institute of Senegal, evangelism and discipleship, and provision of leadership and staff at the Dakar Academy, a school for missionary children.
We pray to be used of God to help youth 1) know Jesus Christ personally; 2) love Him intimately; and 3) serve Him faithfully.
Join us in praying ambitiously according to Ephesians 3:19-20 and John 15:16 that 100% of Dakar Academy students would walk with Jesus Christ and serve Him in whatever they choose to do with their lives. We also ask God to bring all of our neighbors to Himself as Savior and Lord.
We are living and ministering in a country in which at least 96% of the population worship another world religion. While there is openness and freedom to share, there is also a tremendous spiritual battle going on here. So we face overt spiritual warfare on a regular basis. Thankfully, this has caused us to lean heavily on the Lord and grow in our convictions about our authority in Christ and His desire to minister through us by His Word and His power.
We work with missionary kids and international kids from about 35 different countries in grades K-12 at Dakar Academy. We also serve in relationships with many of our friends and neighbors who live in the neighborhood around us.
