Our Mission in Haiti
For forty years Rod Myers and Jean Robert St. Hilaire have been working together to evangelize the peoples of Haiti around the world. After the establishment of the Delmas 43 Eglise du Christ in Port au Prince, soon thereafter a school of preaching was established. The school is a three-year program of instruction for men and women to prepare them to serve in the kingdom of God. This work is under the direction of the elders of the Northeast Church of Christ in Kingsport, Tennessee.
CMI plays a supporting role in planting churches and raising funds for disaster relief, such as for the 2010 earthquake that took the lives of over 250,000 people. Churches have been planted throughout Haiti and wherever Haitians live around the world, including the US, France, Guadeloupe, Dominican Republic, and Central and South America. Over 250 churches from this first congregation. Rod Myers has made over 40 trips to teach and preach with thousands coming to the Lord.
It is the vision of CMI’s work in Haiti to be able to provide funds for travel, teaching materials, meeting places, and relief efforts. Because of our long experience in Haiti, we can also advise others how to best do work in a country that is plagued with poverty, corrupt government, and disreputable preachers.
