The Champions Club is a ministry first of its kind in Malawi that brings the good news of Jesus Christ to special needs children and their families.
Living in one of the poorest countries in the world, special needs children (or ‘Champs’) are too often underserved, neglected, or shunned. The Champions Club provides encouragement, training, resources, and love to meet the developmental needs of Champs in four major areas: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical.
Our primary desire is to tangibly demonstrate to all Champs that God hasn’t forgotten them and that there is real hope in Jesus Christ.
The Champs Mobile ministry is our traveling Champions Club, which brings the benefits of the Champions Club out into the surrounding villages. This ministry serves Champions in six centralized areas covering 26 villages. Working in conjunction with the Community Health Network and the Ministerial Department, the Champs Mobile ministry visits special needs families in their homes. They support each child’s mental and social development, educate their guardians on physical and occupational therapy exercises and techniques, and provide spiritual counseling with one of our staff pastors.
This ministry continues to expand its impact on those in need and the communities around them!
The opening of the Champions Club in Malawi in 2016, was a miracle straight from the throne room of heaven. There is no other possible explanation. When the opening ceremony was over, an American pastor’s wife approached my husband with tears in her eyes and said, “I’ve never seen anything like this, not even in the United States. God outdid Himself today. I’m overwhelmed.” The Champions Club brought and continues to bring hope to Champions and their families.
