An awakening of Haitian Christians through community development, economic development, and church-ministry development.

It is our hope that these opportunities will assist Haitian Christians in a variety of ways, including personal relationships, community Bible studies, and formal Biblical training. Our goal is to equip these local Christians to reach their own communities and their own country through showing Christ’s love in action.

"Love doesn't just keep thinking about it or keep planning for it.

Simply put, love does. - Bob Goff

It is our desire to see an awakening of Haitian Christians through community development, economic development, and church-ministry development. 

It is our hope to provide opportunities to Haitian Christians in a variety of ways, including personal relationships, community Bible studies, and formal Biblical training. 

Our goal is to equip these local Christians to reach their own communities and their own country through showing Christ’s love in action.

 

No American missionary can evangelize a foreign country as well as Christian nationals can, but in Haiti, extreme poverty hampers the ability of Haitian Christians to evangelize their own country.   

Often Haitian Christians do not have the resources to adequately support the ministries of a local church or to get systematic Bible training of any kind.  In Haiti, church planting and church growth largely depend on outside support in the form of finances and personal relationships. 

Although many Haitians have not come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, Haiti is not a mission field which needs Christ introduced.  In fact, it is our belief that American Christians could learn much from Haitian believers in the way they live their lives in trust, submission, and mutual edification.  

Haiti is a mission field where economic opportunities and personal relationships are necessary to help Haitian Christians and pastors move beyond mere physical subsistence to evangelism and systematic Bible training that will spur church growth and additional church planting.

Haiti Awake is our ministry.

Relationships

We must continue to learn about the country of Haiti, its language, its culture, and its customs.  Haiti is its own country with a rich history worthy of recognition. 

We do not desire to “Americanize” Haiti.  Instead, we desire to partner with Haitians so that we can present the Gospel in the most effective way possible.

Through meaningful interpersonal relationships, we seek to identify Haitian Christians who have the ability and desire to develop ministries and who would benefit from formal Bible training. 

Relationships are established through living life together with others.   This is our desire - to build relationships and see where God leads

It is our desire to see Americans and Haitians form their own personal relationships with those who, though different from us in many ways, love the same Lord and serve the same God we do.

Gospel

All that we do must be viewed through the Gospel.  Apart from the Gospel, anything we do is without eternal value.  As we work day by day we trust that God will be faithful to accomplish His purpose for each of the individuals He has providentially made a part of our Haiti Awake family.

Hope

We believe economic opportunities are vital as they will provide earned income and personal dignity to Haitian Christians.  Our copy center, egg farm, and partnership with Mission Made Jewelry are furthering this vision.

Poverty is much more than the lack of resources; it is a state of mind and being. 

We desire to help Haitian believers see their worth in Jesus Christ and not be defined by the limitations of their homeland.  We desire to offer economic opportunities, not hand-outs. 

We have a base of operations in Tabarre that allows us to engage the local community and give a specific place for both our staff and visitors to gather, work, and learn together.

sponsoring a child with Haiti Awake

“We are so grateful for all of the amazing work the Haiti Awake is doing, and we have been fortunate enough to go on several different trips to Haiti over the years, making connections with the staff and the children.
"The child sponsorship program has allowed us to create an intentional relationship with Esterlin. We made a special connection with him early on, and this has allowed us to further grow our when we are not in country relationship by writing back-and-forth, continually praying over him, and sending him special gifts for his birthday and holidays.
"We truly feel as though the Haiti Awake staff and all of the children are a part of our extended family and we are so thankful to be able to watch them grow and develop. The best part about sponsoring a child with Haiti Awake is that you get to truly be a part of the amazing things that God is doing in these children’s lives” – Whitty and Kaitlyn Stephens
