Ivorians are known for their ambition in business, management, and artisanship. In cities, towns, and villages you will find talented carpenters, skilled tailors, soulful singers. leather craftsmen, glass and metal workers. Like Cameroon, this country is another ethnic melting pot. Strong economic relations to the surrounding West African countries and France, are secured by the agricultural industry and immigration.
In general, the church in Côte d’Ivoire is thriving and passionate about evangelism. Every Saturday you can find a herald sharing the gospel of Jesus in a public place. The religious atmosphere, at least on the surface, is peaceful. New mosques are seen in nearly every town. At least an echo of the Islamic call to prayer is heard wherever you are at the specified time. Traditional healers, sometimes known as mystics, are still relevant here. Surely you will be able to find one in any direction.
Our goal here is to train alongside a healthy church movement full of passionate ministers, who not only preach the gospel but meet the needs of the people as well.
