To exemplify Christ love to the youth of Liberia and their families
Liberia is a small West African country on the Atlantic coast. The population is currently censused to be 85 percent Christian. It was founded in 1821 through the efforts of the American Colonization Society and settled mainly by freed slaves from 1822 to the 1860s. Monrovia is the capital of Liberia which was named after James Monroe, the 5th United States president, who was influential in freeing the slaves. Liberia is the oldest independent country in Africa established in 1847. A military coup, in 1980, began a period of government oppression and civil unrest leading to a full-scale civil war that ended in 1996.
The purpose of Kick For Christ’s is to exemplify Christ’s love to Liberian Youth and Families by providing resources that would ease their impoverished circumstances following a civil war and allow them to experience life more fully.
Resources with which Kick For Christ envisions blessing the youth of Liberia:
- provide any materials that ease their impoverished circumstances following a civil war
- encourage them with the gospel message
- pursue local outreach coaching clinics
