About Us

Our Vision

The vision of West Africa Leadership and Youth Ministries, Inc. is to establish churches and community outreach efforts in remote regions of West Africa. We will achieve this by planting churches in remote regions such as those in Togo, Ghana, and Benin and by holding theological workshops and seminars for pastors. We will also assist schools in West African communities by providing them with school supplies and materials, establishing libraries and clinics in low-income areas, organizing soccer tournaments, holding religious services in high schools and providing assistance for elderly widows such as food pantries and financial assistance.
