In Community by community – ICBC projects


ICBC, an acronym for In Community By Community, was birthed out of an effort to stand against the mind-set of dependency upon churches and aid organisations. At its heart is the desire for church and ministry plants to be established IN the rural areas BY the people that live there. We have seen how establishing a church plant alongside a local Pastor, with a heart after God and a love for his people, is gradually giving those rural villages, much-needed hope for a sustainable future. CMS has a vision to see 60 ICBCs planted throughout Swaziland. The ICBC vision seeks to serve those most in need, in the most deprived areas of Swaziland bringing healthcare, education and assistance to their community.
