City Mission PNG: A Legacy of Hope 


http://citymissionpng.org/

City Mission PNG (CMPNG) has been “Spreading the love of God and meeting human needs” for over 25 years.  The Mission began as a ministry to street boys and has continued to grow and adapt to the challenging social and spiritual needs of Papua New Guinea.  As a Faith-based, Christian ministry we recognize our responsibility help the neediest people in PNG in a holistic way: physically,  emotionally and spiritually.

As 2018 CMPNG has multiple facilities in Port Moresby, Lae – and now – Madang.

Our New  Life Skills Training Centres provide life skills, literacy and vocational training through a 14-month residential program. Our facilities currently have bed space for over 300 young men at a time.

In 2003 we opened  the first long-term shelter supporting survivors of Gender Based Violence (GBV). At Haus Ruth in Port Moresby and Meri Seif Haus in Lae we provide shelter, counselling and social services for women (and their children) who have experienced domestic or sexual abuse.

Recognizing a disturbing trend of more and more street children in the nation’s capital, CMPNG  launched New Life Children’s Crisis Centre, the first government-certified Children’s Crisis Centre in the country.  NLCCC provides short-term residential care, counselling and an abundance of love  for abused, abandoned and orphaned children. Haus Clare in Lae serves a a longer-term orphanage.

We are a Christian organization and believe that the ultimate success in life must include a relationship with God. To this end we encourage spiritual development in and through all aspects of our programs. Each City Mission location has a local church in the program that our clients attend for discipleship, encouragement and spiritual fellowship.

As a Non-profit NGO, City Mission operates on the generous donations of organizations, businesses and individuals who partner with us to make a difference in the lives of countless Papua New Guinean families each year.

What is City Mission?

We are going to be working with a group called City Mission PNG, in the city of Lae. Lae, like the larger city of Port Moresby, has a great deal of poverty, a great deal of homelessness, a great deal of crime, a great deal of unemployment, and a great deal of suffering.

Lae City Mission aims to help the people of Lae, by giving them a hand up: the boys coming in off the streets are trained and taught skills which they will be able to use once they leave; skills which enable them to provide for themselves, to be in a better position than when they first came in. All this, and connected with the Gospel!

 
Dave’s role will be to work alongside the boys, as they become young men – and future elders, deacons, preachers, and teachers – teaching, guiding (and probably learning a whole bunch ourselves).
