Who We Are

Africa New Life’s mission to transform lives and communities through the two hands of the gospel is not limited to lives and communities in Rwanda; it also pertains to our people (staff) and culture. At Africa New Life (U.S.), our people are highly valued and acknowledged as our most important resource. Our prayer for your time at Africa New Life is that you feel secure in your place on the team, meaningfully challenged in your role, and joyful about your work as we serve Rwanda together. We hope that when you leave Africa New Life, your leadership ability will be stronger, your heart will be larger, and you will be better equipped for your “next step,” whatever it might be.
