and Mike Lowery work with the Congolese Baptist Community (CBCO), continuing
the efforts American Baptists began in the Democratic Republic of Congo more
than a century ago. Mike is an administrator and a professor at the Pastor’s
Institute in Kikongo. He works to equip leaders for ministry in rural churches
in the Bandundu region of Congo. Mike is
also currently serving as pastor of the International Protestant Church of
Kinshasa. Jill works with the National
Women’s Office of CBCO in ministries reaching out to unwed mothers and young women
who are at risk to prostitution. The Lowery’s goal is to provide a spiritual
foundation, as well as job training, that would empower their young women to
move on to a better life.
Languages used in ministry: French, Kituba, Lingala and English.
