MEET OUR TEAM
Africa New Life Ministries Rwanda was founded by Rwandans and is run by Rwandans. More than 300 Rwandan and East African staff serve to educate children, pastor families spiritually, care for the medical needs of our communities, and promote growth of the ministry in Rwanda.
Africa New Life Ministries International exists in the U.S. to support the work in Rwanda in the areas of sponsorship, development, team trips, financial accountability, and church/strategic partnerships.
