Jill 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.
