Project Description

Children and youth ministry in Sri Lanka


This ministry opportunity is in Badulla, which is in the upcountry part of Sri Lanka. Shalom Church is the first Church of the Nazarene in the district which was started 16 years ago. As part of our children ministry we educate children of our community in after school classes. We have a number of centers outside the church, so we go from church and teach them in evenings. Presently we have more than 250 youth & children in total. We also hope to run a computer training for these children and youth in future on the church premises.
