A Church With Every Nation, Tribe, People, and Language

Aug 2, 2019

Wekab and Kanya Ombe are refugees from the Congo living in Bowling Green, Kentucky. After 19 years in a Tanzanian refugee camp where they fled to escape the ravages of war and a corrupt government, they welcomed an opportunity to come to the U.S. to raise their children in a safe environment where they would have a chance to experience freedom and a better life.

In 2015, Matt and Dawn Betts felt called by God to plant a church in Bowling Green. During their search for a location, they were struck with the need for a church in the international community made up of all nations and tribes and people and languages. As only God can do, their church is in the heart of Bowling Green among the refugees and immigrants. Listen as they share some of their story:

Your gifts to Stadia build relationships among refugees from different cultures with different values and limited English language skills. Establishing a multi-ethnic culture has been challenging for this new church community, but your support can make an impact.

Would you join us today to planting More & Better Churches? Matt and Dawn want Journey Church to be diverse, multi-ethnic, and beautiful. Just like you, they want to fulfill the vision revealed in Revelation 7:9, I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb…

Please join Stadia in planting More and Better churches. Because together we won’t stop until every child has a church.
