Church Planting

Empowering the Body of Christ

To Reach the Lost

Church Planting 

Calvary Relief International invites you to join hands in the mission of establishing Christ-centered schools of ministry and churches in unreached communities across East Africa and beyond.

Schools of Ministry:

CRI has successfully built and continues to support three Schools of Ministry, two located in Kenya and one in Burundi.

By of the end of 2022, we had trained, sent out & supported 65 new pastors. In 2023-2024, we currently have 57 more who are studying.

  • It takes $30 per month to support a studying pastor.

Planting churches in unreached areas:

Over the past few years, we’ve reached more than 125 previously unreached villages with the Gospel. Our pastors either move in to or return weekly to these remote villages, nurturing new believers, and training emerging church leaders.

  • Our teams have currently identified and are focussing on reaching 300 more remote villages in East Africa that have never heard the name of Jesus.

  • The average church size ranges from 100 to 300 new believers, with entire villages turning to Christ.

  • Your church has the opportunity to collaborate with other U.S. churches on a joint project or adopt a church plant individually.
  • Pastoral support is crucial for establishing healthy churches in the third world. For approximately $75 a month, you can sustain a national pastor and their family in full-time ministry in rural Africa.

  • Contact us for more information about getting involved in church planting projects in East Africa.

    At this time we have ongoing projects in… Burundi, Uganda, South Sudan and Kenya with many others who are waiting for a helping hand.


    Your recurring monthly gifts to “Church Planting” helps us to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unreached people groups in Africa and around the world.
