Seen by some as a luxurious tropical getaway spot, the small country of Belize is much more than beaches, resorts and blue lagoons. If you travel outside of the hopping vacation centers, you won't have to go far before you encounter the less popular, poor, weathered and neglected side of Belize. As with many other Central-American countries, the tourism sector of Belize is not sufficient to power a thriving economy for the entire country. The vast majority of Belizians make a living through traditional farming or the selling of goods and services. But with an unemployment of over 60%, there are many who are left to fend for themselves to make ends meet. 

As a church, we believe God has called us to reach the people of Belize. Over the last few years we've seen the Lord place strategic partners in our path that will provide the connection we need to spread the Gospel there. The GBC Advancing Committee, as well as Pastor Charles and our pastoral staff, have embraced this poor country as a target for Gospel ministry that we feel our church is equipped to carry out.

YES! We want everyone to GO to Belize! The great part about this small country is that it's only about half a day's flight, they are english speaking, and we have comfortable accommodations available to us. We will be planning multiple trips in the 2018-19 year and are looking for those gifted in not only evangelism and discipleship, but people with construction skills, medical skills and sports/entertainment ideas will be needed for our upcoming trips. 

Stéphane & Rhae Shawn Kabantu

After meeting on the mission field in South Africa, Stéphane & Rhae Shawn Kabantu found themselves moving back to Germantown to be with Rhae Shawn's mother who had become ill. Stéphane told his wife that it was important that they find the church that God wanted them to serve in while in Germantown. After a chance meeting at a local music store, they were invited to Germantown Baptist and became convinced that this is where the Lord was leading them.

It didn't take long for the Kabantus to realize that they should find an area of service. They had heard an announcement about a workshop being put on by the Mobilization Ministry and attended all of the sessions that they could.

As they continued in their journey, they asked the Lord if he was calling them to serve in a place like Downtown Memphis, or Denver, or even Belize. Eventually they took a trip to Belize and immediately fell in love with the people in the tiny town of Dangriga. Since then, they have felt the Lord calling them to commit to moving there to carry out the Great Commission and make disciples in Belize.

Please take time to pray for the Kabantus. This transition will include many changes and trials as they figure out their new life in Dangriga. But with this comes great opportunity for the Gospel to be spread, and the ministry of Germantown Baptist to have a stronger presence among the people of Belize.
