Tory Almond pics 1Where we’ve been and where we’re going!

CMConnect exists to connect, serve and advance under-resourced children’s workers from all over the world.

We focus on training from the New Testament, not a resource.
We focus on advancing indigenous leaders at local churches.

We focus on leading leaders of children, not teaching children.

Here are a few highlights from 2016:
  • Rwanda – trained around 300 leaders in the Anglican Church to use a children’s Discipleship Program in partnership with DCCScreen Shot 2016-03-24 at 1.53.01 PM

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 5.52.19 PMOur budget in 2017 requires us to raise an additional $30,000 or $40,000 in funding, depending on where travel expenses end and which programs are able to get finalized through our local partners. There is a great need for the work we are doing. So many children are living without hope of a better tomorrow. So many are facing desperate conditions.
