A significant factor behind Congo’s inability to flourish is failed leadership. The dearth of visionary leaders contributes to a failing state and compromised civil society, legal system, churches, economy, natural resource management, and education system.
In order to address this challenge, our strategy for transformation in DRC is leadership development through a redemptive Christ-centered community. We believe leaders nurtured by a transformational community will catalyze renewal for a flourishing Congo.
This community-centered strategy for leadership development focuses on long-term investment strategies, rather than short-term relief work and “front-line” service provision. CI cultivates a Christ-centered community and develops transformational leaders through four key sectors defined as a targeted domain of intervention where CI’s projects, programs, and institutions demonstrate transformational impact. These sectors are education, renewing Christian vocation, holistic family development, and governance and economic development.
