The Chapel Hill Bible Church has been partnering with Beacon of Hope in Nairobi, Kenya since 2002, just a few months after its inception. The last 17 years have provided us with great opportunities to serve alongside our brothers and sisters in Nairobi as they minister to women affected by HIV/AIDS and to children in the surrounding communities. The gospel of Jesus Christ is at the forefront of the ministry of Beacon and we are privileged to partner with them as they share the good news with those around them.
Our team of 30 are headed to Kenya, July 13-28, to once again minister alongside our friends at Beacon of Hope.

We invite you to pray for our team as we prepare to serve and grow together.
