 Bible Studies

One of the goals of the Congo Initiative is to provide congregations with a way of connecting Biblical principles with advocacy issues identified by our partners in the Congo. We are pleased to present you with the following Bible studies that provide a deeper understanding of the challenges and concerns of our brothers and sisters. These Bible Studies have also been translated into French so that they may be used in churches throughout the Congo.

 The Music of Mama Beyeke Bofii

Where can one find the best music? You may be surprised to learn that the Democratic Republic of the Congo is well-known for its innovation in music throughout the world. It is out of this rich cultural context that Marie Beyeke-Bofii, known to the Disciples of Christ Community and the ecumenical church in the Congo as, “Mama Beyeke” arose to transform the worship experience in the life and witness of congregations throughout the Congo with her melodic voice and artistic leadership (full profile of Mama Beyeke).

In the late 80's Mama Beyeke's choral group traveled to the United States and performed at General Assembly as well as recording this album. We encourage you to use this sacred music both in worship settings and in your daily life as a way to connect more closely to our brothers and sisters in the Congo. This music is not for commercial use.

 Vacation Bible School / Sunday School Material

 Njoku & Bombambo is a short story from the Congo that makes a great Sunday School activity or a children's moment. Simply download the pdf and staple the two pages together to form the booklet. Then after you have read the story, invite the children to create their own illustrations to go with Enkumo Lot's short story (example).

The Kids to Kids material Journey to Congo provides many different Bible story lessons, crafts, games, and worship ideas appropriate for children.

 Deepened Understanding

Another important goal of the Congo Initiative is to foster a deep understanding of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The following books and films have been suggested by Global Ministries staff and our partners in the Congo. We encourage you to initiate a book club or organize a film night in your congregation to engage in these materials
