The Passion Center for Children serves children orphaned by the AIDS epidemic in Malawi. We seek to rescue those children at greatest risk, providing food, comfort, medical care, and a safe place to live in the name of Jesus Christ.
It’s amazing how a smile, a touch, a word or our skills can be used by God to make a spiritually strategic difference in the life of an orphan, a widow, or a villager. We’ve seen it happen time and time again. Every year God uses individuals to remind the fatherless He hasn’t forgotten them; to demonstrate His love for a widow; or to emphasize there is Hope and a new future in Jesus!
What a wonderful opportunity we have to partner with God to rescue, redeem and restore “the least of these” and their villages. If you’ve ever dreamed of going to Africa or thought about being His hands and feet in places that desperately need His grace, then we encourage you to prayerfully consider going in 2015!
Since the Passion Center is involved in a variety of ministries, we are seeking individuals and groups with willing hearts and various abilities to help strengthen and expand God’s work in Malawi.
Help show love, compassion, kindness, and encouragement to hundreds of orphans, widows and villagers. They just might get a glimpse of God’s heart through you!
Inspire children in an intensive one week Passion Center Academy (also training and encouraging Malawian teachers). We pay all the school costs for Passion kids but we need educators to inspire them in education and raise the quality of education for all students.
Can you swing a hammer…lay some bricks…work with your hands? Then help us repair or rebuild the collapsing homes of orphans and widows.
Help train, mentor and teach Community Health Network volunteers—often the sole healthcare providers—to provide basic healthcare, First Aid and sanitation in over a hundred villages.
The Passion Center Soccer and Netball League allows us to reach thousands. Help us build into coaches, players and young fans through discipleship, clinics and outreach games. Consider playing on a team, bringing a team, putting on a clinic or leading a Bible study.
Here’s a snapshot of some things that are happening in Malawi plus the dates for Mission Trips in 2015!
The Passion Center for Pastors
There are now 105 village pastors in Phase 1 of our new year-long Biblical training ministry, “The Passion Center for Pastors!” What an opportunity to equip and strengthen those with little Biblical training who are on the front lines communicating the Gospel and facing the growing presence of folk Islam. Please pray for these pastors and a great response to the Gospel. Read more…

Our multi-ministry outreach to this Muslim village starts with a long drive into the bush. We notice all the mosques recently built to gain a presence here. Titi, leads the Child Headed Household (CHH) ministry, taking us to a household of three sisters whose “house” was destroyed during the rainy season. His work here has opened a door for the gospel. We pull off the main path near the village mosque and enter a cluster of homes. Newly molded bricks lay in the open, these will become the three sister’s new home! Children start flowing into a clearing under a shade tree. Soon we’re starting our first outreach event. Pastor Banda gets the kids singing and dancing which allows the Children’s team to share a simple gospel story and hand out coloring sheets with crayons. Most have never used crayons and they’re so proud of their pictures and bible verse. Parents and young adults join in as Pastor Banda tells the story of salvation. I see the mosque Imam observing our activities and wonder how he’ll respond. Read more…
“You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more.”
