Reaching the World

Children's Ministry in Liberia

nullJoe Boway was commissioned in January 2004, as a missionary to the people of Liberia, by New Life Lutheran Church of Ft. Wayne Indiana. St. Mark’s has partnered with Joe & Glendora Boway, who is working with principals, evangelists, and pastors to reach thousands of children and their families through over 12 Lutheran schools in rural areas of Liberia. Children have an opportunity to attend school, hear Bible stories, and learn about the love of Jesus. 

Joe explains, “We cannot change what has happened in the past to the children of Liberia, but we can help change their future, and make an eternal difference in their lives.”

The mission of the Liberian Children's Ministry is to help meet the educational and spiritual needs of the children of Liberia in order to give them the real hope that is found only in Christ Jesus. It provides quality education for God's children to develop spiritually, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. Meanwhile, the vision of the Liberian Children's Ministry is to help share the love of God through Christ-Centered education in an environment where children can grow to their full potential to become leaders who carry the ministry of the local church in the world.
