The Rift Valley Vision was formally founded in 2001 with an emphasis on sending missionaries to areas where the gospel had been least heard so they could introduce individuals to Christ, disciple new believers, plant churches, and come alongside regional leaders to help them reach their own peoples for Christ. More than 12 years later, this focus continues to guide us.
Over the years, we have grown to equip and support more than 1,670 local missionaries in the country. Currently, more than 427 missionaries are working through out Ethiopia. As they serve in a wide variety of ministries, they share the love and message of Christ, equip and empower churches and their leaders, and further community development.
The Rift Valley Vision Program has a long history of partnering with local churches to provide training and resources and to aid the growth of local churches’ mission awareness and activity. We also serve church congregations by providing outreach seminars and mentoring services. As fruit of these ministries, congregations throughout Ethiopia partner local churches have begun actively supporting and sending their own missionaries to unreached and least reached communities within their own peoples and beyond.
God has created each of us for the common purpose of glorifying Him through loving those around us as we are designed to contribute. The more we love God, the more we reflect His loving image back to those around us and help to usher them into His presence. Whatever your gifts, the kingdom awaits your offering.
