Haitian Churches Net New Members With Summer Outreach

In an effort to live out the world church’s call to revival and reformation, three Allegheny East Conference Haitian churches spent the summer working to win fellow French-speakers to Christ in Philadelphia. The Jerusalem French church, a Haitian community in Philadelphia, recently completed a three-week missionary campaign based on the study of Revelation. They finished the campaign with 47 new members.

Pastor Yrvin Jean-Philippe, pastor of the Hebron church (New York City), preached the series themed “Jesus, the Conqueror of Conquerors.” Held every night from 7:30 to 9:30, the program was also broadcasted on Heavenly Vision, a local Haitian radio station, allowing people near and far to listen in. 

Every single night, ushers reported that new visitors expressed their hunger for the Living Word. And after 21 days of ceaseless prayers, including efforts from Bible workers, Pastor Abdonel Jean-Philippe and the entire church welcomed their new members in two different baptismal ceremonies. 

The Mount-Nebo and New Maranatha companies, led by Pastor Jean Milca Fenelon, also led two evangelical series in July and August, which resulted in 16 baptisms.
