EMPOWERING THE LOCAL CHURCH
“We believe that local church leadership is best positioned to minister to their communities in relevant and meaningful ways, and our role is to help provide resources to meet their needs.”
At Foundations for Hope, we believe church planting is the most powerful strategy for advancing the gospel in developing regions. Establishing local churches strengthens discipleship and the long-term stability of an emerging Christian community.
While church planting is at the center of our missional focus, our partnership with local churches has extended in many directions as local leaders have shared about the challenges and opportunities present in their areas.
In the sections below you’ll discover more about out current chuch planting projects as well as the “Kimana Orphan Care” project, which has developed through conversations with local church partners. We couldn’t be more proud of the work that is being done and hope you’ll join with us as we continue.

Kimana Orphan Care Facility History
The late bishop and founder of Agape Fellowship Church, Steve Kabachia, saw the need for an Orphan Care facility in Kimana. His vision was to have a self-sustaining children’s home with electricity, clean water, dining facility, lodging facilities and a farm. Together, the Agape Fellowship Church and Jesus Harvesters were able to acquire 20 acres — 15 of which are dedicated to farming, allowing for the sale of crops to support the children’s home. The exterior shell for the five children’s homes, a kitchen/dining facility, and an exterior restroom/storage building were constructed on the remaining five acres.
Agape Fellowship Church recently provided The Kimana Orphan Care facility with two solar-powered well pumps. The two systems not only supply the children with clean drinking water and supply a furrow irrigation system for farming, but also provide a clean water station for the local community.
