On June 18th, we participated in a celebration with our South Sudanese friends, as CBM and FEBAC (Faith Evangelical Baptist Churches of South Sudan) signed an official partnership agreement.
Since 2010, Canadian Baptists have been working with FEBAC in small joint projects and emergency relief efforts in South Sudan. Together we have worked to improve theological education for pastors, enhance food security, improve peace and reconciliation, and Kamp Tumaini. Through the support of Canadian churches, we’ve also been able to provide scholarships and educational support for young leaders and students in the church.
Earlier this year, we made the final steps towards an official partnership as CBM and FEBAC conducted a peer capacity assessment that mapped out areas and opportunities of strength and weakness, as we identified priorities for how we as organizations might best help one another become more effective and healthy.
As partners, CBM and FEBAC will continue to work together in providing emergency assistance to refugees and displaced communities in South Sudan. We are committed to bringing people together for integral mission that bears witness to the love and hope of Christ.
