Who is Ethiopia ACT?

We are a gospel-centered, multi-cultural team actively loving the “least of these" of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We work to reconcile people to God through Jesus Christ, and to reconcile them to themselves, others and creation—all resulting in the planting, growing and maturing of churches that in turn transform lives and communities through faithful witnesses to the Gospel.

Why we exist

Ethiopia ACT began as a ministry to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS on extremely poor families, but has grown to include other public health strategies that serve the wider community, as well as educational and psychological support for vulnerable children.  Church planting and renewal is central to all our activities and a primary goal for our team.
