Welcome…

If you could do just one thing for the children of Togo in West Africa, what would it be? Get rid of poverty? Hunger? Corruption? For MECI, the one big thing children need is the Good News of Jesus. There is a vibrant and growing church in Togo, but it is in danger of alienating the next generation. Why? Because it lacks Bible-based training in children’s ministry. In the UK, we have the resources to bring the Gospel to children in fun and colourful ways – stories, games, dramas, crafts. But even in the liveliest churches in Togo, there is little Gospel work aimed at children, despite the fact that half their population are under 16. The emphasis is on keeping children quiet and well-behaved in church, rather than communicating the Bible in child-friendly ways.

MECI aims to equip Togolese Christians with the knowledge and skills to evangelise and disciple children NOW rather than waiting for them to become adults.
