Fostering Gospel Community in Bukavu, DRC

Nicolas Kyalangalilwa launched Le Phare Church in Bukavu in 2012 with a vision to reach his city for the gospel. Originally just a French-speaking church, in 2016 they launched a second service in English to appeal to the many people in the city who want to speak English more regularly. They currently have 100 adults attending their church and nine small groups that meet across the city. They are now praying about planting another church to continue to reach new people in the community.

There are several ways you can pray for Le Phare. Pray for these small groups—for the leaders and that these groups will be harbors of light within their neighborhoods. Pray for Nic as he considers greater financial, time and energy investment with the potential launch of a second church. And pray that God will grow this new English-speaking service and that even more people in Bukavu will be renewed by the gospel.
