The Gambia is the smallest nation on mainland Africa. A nation of 2 million people that is rich in farmland, fishing, and local trade. “The smiling coast of Africa”, as Gambia is affectionately known, is a predominately Islamic country with more than 95% of its citizens identifying as Muslim. Gambia is an English based country with many local ethnic languages and is open to the gospel. National believers are present within this country yet there are no Independent Baptist church planting missionaries in this country. Other denominations that exist within the country include Catholic, Charismatic, and Animism. The needs within The Gambia are many, yet the greatest need for this tiny West African country is Bible teaching and preaching. It is our desire to teach the Bible and train national believers with our focus towards planting and establishing indigenous churches.
“Our family has been church planting missionaries in The Gambia, West Africa since May 2019. In 2020 we started the Living Hope Baptist Church in the town of Busumbala. As the result of a small Bible Study, our church has now grown into a vibrant church of more than 20 people. In 2021, we purchased land for the church and built a building on the property which was completed in 2023. In addition to people being saved, baptized, and discipled, we are also training Gambian men for the ministry with the goal of planting more churches in Gambia and sending missionaries out from our congregation to go around the world reaching souls for Christ."
