Africa has one of the fastest growing evangelical churches in the world. It is also a continent that has been torn apart by poverty, war, corruption, hunger, injustice and AIDS. The mission of NEGST is to train leaders who will help the church in Africa deal with these realities in a biblical way. Over 300 alumni are serving in 26 countries in Africa. College Park Church helps by sponsoring students and sending teams to help with various projects at the seminary.
Liberia - Bethesda Christian School
Liberia was decimated by civil war during the 1990's. College Park's involvement in Liberia is multi-faceted. Bethesda Christian School, a Child Evangelism Fellowship-affiliated school, is training children to be followers of Jesus Christ who will have an impact in their country for Him. Abundant Harvest Farms is an economic development program of growing rubber trees whose proceeds help assist Bethesda Christian School. Triumphant Transformation Kids provides training and assistance for the extremely poor and destitute. College Park Church is involved through funding, scholarships and vision teams that help with construction and other projects.
Through short-term construction and medical teams, as well as financial support, College Park is assisting the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) as they build and sustain the Wendell Kempton Medical and Ministry Center in the Muslim stronghold of northern Togo.
