We believe in a world where churches are the hands and feet of Jesus in their communities, ministering to orphans, widows and others infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.
With a church focus, we strive to be catalytic and facilitative with a commitment to sustainable mobilization and transformation.
Our call is to see ― Every Church a Mother Teresa.
In North America, Visionledd is building a movement of churches committed to walking alongside African churches and ministries who are carrying out community-based HIV/AIDS ministry that leads to community transformation. This is done in four primary ways:
Catalyzing churches for involvement in the HIV/AIDS pandemic – locally and globally through:
- The speaking and writing ministry of our founder, Jim Cantelon.
- Connecting churches with African churches and ministries on the front lines of HIV and AIDS and community transformation ministries.
- Coaching churches as they engage with their African partners in ministry.
- Creating partnerships between North American churches and African churches by increasing the effectiveness of ministry initiatives and creating a climate for building relationships, solving problems and engaging in new opportunities.
In Africa, Visionledd engages with:
- The poorest of the poor.
- Communities characterized by high rates of HIV and AIDS infection.
- Communities that have few external resources or partners.
- Indigenous church, community and national Christian leaders who are already engaged in effective community-based HIV/AIDS ministries.
Visionledd is also:
- Building the capacity of local African churches, helping them battle against HIV/AIDS and work for community transformation.
- Building partnerships and networks with like-minded churches, ministries and leaders.
