PARTNERSHIPS

BETWEEN PEOPLE

Live Connection  partners with and trains Christian leaders, empowering them financially and spiritually, to lead their churches and transform their communities.

Our Story

In 1988, at the age of 22, Paul Ravesteyn travelled throughout Central Africa as a builder with Mobile Mission Maintenance.

While working in Zambia and Malawi, Paul saw gifted men and women, called by God to ministry, but lacking the financial resources to put their children in school, to buy medicine, and in some cases, to even to provide food for their families.

Paul was convicted of the need to serve the vision of transforming communities through partnering with subsistent rural pastors. It became a shared passion with his wife Renée, who grew up as the daughter of missionaries in rural Zambia.

Live Connection was birthed in 2000 and has now grown to work in 12 countries in Africa, as well as the Philippines and Indonesia, helping to support over 180 indigenous pastors.

Each pastor receives financial assistance, as well as leadership training from their regional leader. The pastors are encouraged not just to lead a church service, but to impact their wider communities with the love of God and the message of salvation found in Jesus Christ.
