Musenga Development center

Training Pastors in Zambia and Dem. Rep. of Congo

The 10 acre Musenga Development Center is located in the heart of the Copperbelt of Zambia near the DRC border. It is a strategic center to develop pastors coming into Zambia from the DRC and returning. It also provides a central location for equipping pastors with HBMZ.

Musenga has long been a place in Zambia where HBM Zambia comes for conferences and where HBM short-term mission groups stay as they partner with indigenous churches in the area.

 It has a large meeting hall with cooking facilities, a hostel with 12 rooms, each with a full bath. There are several homes for permanent HBMZ and HBM DRCongo staff  and visiting staff, as well as a large church building.

In 2018 and 2019, the Lord has used this facility and the people living in it to its fullest potential: 

  • Pastors Ilunga and Mwewa have filled a great need in faithfully shepherding and teaching the community and its churches. Their wives are well-respected as compassionate, godly servants to all in the community. 
  • Hundreds of pastors and church leaders from Zambia and DRC have frequently convened at Plot 22 for equipping in essential Christian theology and disciple-making.
  • The property has been consistently used to provide spiritual and physical development to needy orphans, widows, and vulnerable children. 
  • Dozens from the immediate vicinity have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, been baptized, and are currently being discipled by leaders who are also being trained. 
  • The property has served as a clean, safe, Christ-focused campsite and retreat center for many area local churches and ministries. 
  • The proceeds of rents of the center and agricultural projects have provided for the educational needs of many local children.
