Please pray that the Chinns will realize their goal to 26 new units comprising 5 teams to 5 people groups across Africa. Specifically - the Kagoro in Mali; the Wassulu in Guinea; the Makua in Mozambique; the Akyode in Ghana; and the victims of child slavery in Ghana.

Having God's heart for the nations is the passion that has driven our own Missionaries Lloyd and Jan Chinn, for the past 12 years. The Chinn's began exercising their passion and taking hope to the world, by becoming full-time missionaries with WorldVenture, serving in the Nkwanta a District of Ghana, West Africa. They've learned the language, learned the culture, and developed relationships, for the purpose of equipping indigenous leaders, for the work of the ministry, who will in turn equip others for the work of the ministry (Eph 4:12). Because of their humble and faithful service, our faithful God has significantly enlarged their territory.

Lloyd and Jan  serve as the International Ministries Director (IMD) for Africa. Their responsibility is in three areas: strategic planning, leadership development and organizational leadership. As IMD, some of what they are responsible for are providing pastoral care, leadership and supervision for internatinal workers in Africa; assuring that WorldVenture personnel in Africa are being cared for and challenged toward ongoing personal and professional development; addressing personnel and field crisis in Africa; and calling and leading international workers in Africa to spiritual, relational and organizational health. They also have the responsibility for recruiting needed workers and identifying new fields of service.

Currently, they serve 94 units which comprises about 189 people in 11 different countries including: Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Senegal, Uganda, Mozambique and Mali. It is the Chinns sincere desire to see international workers across Africa spiritually empowered, unleashed to sour in their respective ministries and to facilitate the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ across the continent of Africa.


So Good Hope, taking hope to the world is now more real than ever! As the Chinn's ministry impact has expanded exponentially, we must grow in our support of them. The Chinn's are apart of the Family of Hope and the Family of Hope are a part of the Chinn's.


West Africa Theological Seminary (WATS) serves one of the fastest-growing segments of the Christian Church in the world, and it focuses squarely on the two greatest needs of the African Church ... leadership development and discipleship of believers.

We offer two BA programs, five Masters' programs, a Doctor of Ministry program.

And, as our statement of vision notes, we have a very focused purpose, that: "The Kingdom of God will have come to all people groups, resulting in their being redeemed, reconciled, and complete through Jesus Christ, the Son of God."

In the Heart of Africa... Rising up to meet Africa's greatest need ... Leadership Training
