The DRC has suffered from corruption and war over the years, but since the 1960’s evangelical Christians have increased in number. Revivals have occured throughout the country both before and after independence from foreign forces in 2003.
The social impact of the Church has grown over the years as it has filled in the gaps that were left by failed government programs. Through peacemaking and reconciliation methods, the Church has been able to care for the needs of the Congelese as many social, health, and education services are offered by Christian groups in lieu of a fully operational government. This has led to an openess to Christianity as well as new professions of faith among various ethnic groups, but has created a serious need to develop disciple-making skills within the Body of Christ through culturally relevant ministry.
