    First Covenant supports the Bobangala Clinic as a part of the Congo Clinic Initiative (CCI) with the PCP along with First Covenant Church in Red Wing, MN and Bethlehem Covenant Church in Minneapolis, MN.

    As we head into our third year of this partnership, know that your giving will allow our clinic to move into the "water phase" of the CCI to address the ongoing issues of access to clean water by:

  • equipping key clinic communities with water through a holistic asset-based process;
  • providing funding to supplement communities' efforts to improve the quality of their water;
  • in bigger communities, drilling for water and installing pumps
  • Questions? Contact Kaari Newman (Global Missions Team Chair) at or Tom Verdoorn (PCP Board Chair) at
