Chimphinda Gospel Ablaze Ministries International
Ministry Type: Church
Joined FMIN: March 2011
Biography: After holding positions in other ministries assisting with outreaches, missions, and church plantings, Jimmy and Priscilla founded Gospel Ablaze Ministries International in 2007 as a missions-minded church with the goal to mobilize resources and Christians to go to the unreached and less-reached people. Jimmy tells us, "Everyone has a role to play in God's end time harvest."
The vision of the ministry is to be a spiritually potent church that seeks to empower believers, to be morally sound in a world affected by moral decay, to be socially relevant, and affect the social status of people they minister to so they become useful in society.
The ministry has two main areas of focus: spiritual and social. Jimmy and Priscilla have committed to organize evangelism and outreach programs throughout Malawi. They network with local churches to take on the task of follow-up and discipleship with new believers and open up branch churches where needed. Through branch churches, they have introduced social programs such as farming, livestock, and care for the elderly and vulnerable children. It is their belief that through this, people will be empowered economically and socially.
Strengths: Jimmy and Priscilla are gifted administrators who have tender hearts for people and a vision on how to make permanent, positive improvements in their country. Jimmy is comfortable working in teams and makes friends for life.
