Chanya, Stephen & Celeste



Stephen and Celeste met in 2004 while she was serv­ing her 3rd year in Malawi, teach­ing at Central Africa Bible College, locat­ed in Chitipa, Malawi. This is where Stephen was attend­ing his 2nd year. He is now an asso­ciate pas­tor, cam­pus pas­tor and teacher, and serves as zone pas­tor over sev­er­al church­es. Christian Academy Mission Starter School, which they have found­ed, is due in part to the Lord lead­ing through their son Andrew who is now 9 years old. This school is pro­vid­ing much-need­ed qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion and spir­i­tu­al train­ing for chil­dren and also pro­vides par­ent­ing class­es for stu­dents’ fam­i­lies. Within four short years of these class­es, the par­ents have now become the Board of Directors of the School, and the school is thriv­ing under their lead­er­ship. In a coun­try where 46.8 % of the pop­u­la­tion is under 14, but is high­ly over­looked, reach­ing this peo­ple group is vital to a National pos­i­tive change.
