CVC Multi-Cultural Ministry
History & Vision
In the winter of 2021, as CVC was returning to a sense of normalcy following the disruptions of the pandemic, the Lord saw fit to bring to our worship service a small group of African men who were looking for a church home. These men found a welcoming and kingdom-minded environment, and we found in them a genuine love for Christ and a hunger for worship of the one true God.
Immediately a relationship started that grew into a love and appreciation for one another and a desire to partner together in the Gospel. Within a matter of weeks we had worked out an agreement with them to hold a worship service on Sunday afternoons in their native Kinyarwanda language. We have been averaging around 50 attenders in this service for more than six months.
We do not view this as two churches meeting in one building. These brothers and sisters are part of our church family. We pool our resources, fellowship together, pray together, and serve together. We have been taking them through our membership process and so far have 23 who have joined in membership at CVC.
What a tremendous blessing it is to worship with brothers and sisters who are so different from us, from different sides of the world, and yet who have been "called to the one hope that belongs to [our] call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
