Henry & Alma Fornah

Church Planting - Sierra Leone

Henry Fornah heads up the Grace Evangelical Ministry (GEM). Henry is married to Alma and they have 3 grown children. Sierra Leone is a very poor country, mostly Muslim, and many people are subsistent farmers with few jobs and no industry. GEM has planted 7 churches near Freetown. Bethel members help with student scholarships. A portion of the ALL-IN funds raised from Bethel have been used to build a multi-use building to house a church and school that opened in September of 2018.

IBAC - Institutos Biblicos De Los Americas Y El Caribe, Bethel Bible Church, Tyler TX

IBAC

Church Planting - Nicaragua

Institutos Biblicos De Los Americas Y El Caribe – IBAC. Ometepe Island is located in SW Nicaragua in the middle of a volcanic lake. Catholicism is the dominant religion, although it is mixed with some folklore. The island has an economy based on livestock, agriculture, and tourism, and they are known for a type of ceramic pottery. There is one airport that services the island. The mission of Bethel Bible Church and the mission of IBAC go hand in hand – both desiring to develop leaders and train them in advanced Biblical education. The mission statement for IBAC is to equip pastors and leaders in Latin America through mobile/modular theological education in partnership with local churches. Most of the indigenous pastors have had no formal training and don’t have access to a seminary. IBAC provides the curriculum, the planning, the facilities, and gathers the pastors. Then partnering with IBAC, Bethel has been sending teams twice a year to train these pastors on Bible study techniques, Biblical history, and Doctrine. It’s a fun experience and a chance to meet new friends in Christ.
