Haiti churches emphasize community development

Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Nazarene Compassionate Ministries in Haiti organized a community development training event for more than 50 people at the Petionville Church of the Nazarene in Port-au-Prince, 13-17 August.

The conference featured a series of workshops designed to train district leaders to develop their churches and communities during times of both growth and disaster.

They also participated in morning devotionals and nightly worship services where Mesoamerica Regional Director Carlos Sáenz preached the message.

The workshop speakers organized lessons and facilitated question and answer sessions on the following topics:

  • Disaster response
  • Project development
  • WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene)
  • Community development
  • Thinking and living out of the ordinary in leadership
  • How does the church hurt those who help?

“These leaders were satisfied with the conference and want to have that kind of activity again so that more people in the district can benefit from it,” said Emmanuel Jeannite, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries coordinator in Haiti.
