Eglise Evangelique de la Grace-In the fall of 2003, a group of eager believers in the city of Grande Riviere du Nord began a Bible study hoping that their group would eventually organize itself into an established church. Pastor Henoc Lucien traveled weekly to meet with them for Bible study and prayer. Even the political chaos surrounding President Aristide's departure in early 2004 didn't dampen the enthusiasm of this group.
In August of 2004, an evangelistic crusade was launched in the town square. For eight days, thousands of people crowded the town square to hear live praise and worship music and the preaching of the Word. Among the 55 conversions that week, two were witch doctors. On Sunday, August 22, after the 8-day crusade, Eglise Evangelique de la Grace held its first Sunday morning service. 162 people were in attendance that day. Pastor Henoc preached from Acts chapter 2. Many more are attending the midweek Bible studies and praise and worship services.
Often, services at this new church are standing room only. Please remember to pray for this new church plant and the new converts. Pray for the leadership as they begin the process of organizing themselves for ministry in the city of Grande Riviere du Nord. NEW BUILDING:Church members have been collecting and pledging money to begin the construction of this new church building. Construction teams from the U.S. have come for the past few years to work alongside Haitians in the construction of the new church building. Soon this church body will be in a new structure!
