Evangelists in Niger (2), Evangelical Church of the Republic of Niger/Frontier Fellowship
We also volunteer our time and talents to the work of God's Kingdom out in the community and around the world.
Hebron is currently supporting several initiatives in the country of Niger. Our partnership is facilitated by Frontier Fellowship and the Eglise Evangelique de la Republique du Niger (EERN).

Niger Scholarship Fund: Since 2017, we have been sponsoring children to attend school in Niger. $200 sends a child to school for an entire year, including tuition, books, uniforms, and boarding at the school or a meal allowance. These sponsorships are given to children who would otherwise not have access to education. Children's education through EERN's network of schools includes academic training as well as opportunities to hear the gospel and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Be sure to note that your contribution is for "Niger Scholarships."
Evangelists: Hebron supports the salaries of two EERN evangelists in Niger. This partnership began with the purchase of a cart and ox for each evangelist, which helps them carry heavy loads and provide transportation when members of their community need medical care.
Building Fund: Through generous giving, Hebron was able to secure a matching grant from Frontier Fellowship to construct new classrooms for elementary school children. The building was completed in the summer of 2019. These funds were also used to construct a dormitory and library at the Bible College in Dogon Gao. Thanks to many generous donations, we were able to fund the building of two additional classrooms for the Evangelical Church of Niger's (EERN) school in the town of Dogondoutchi. Construction began in January 2021.
Seed and Fertilizer Bank: This co-op was created to provide a fund for the faculty, students and other members of the EERN to borrow money for the purchase of fertilizer and improved seed varieties at the time of planting. Loans are paid back with interest at harvest time. The goal of the co-op is to provide for stronger crops and allow the farmers to become established on their own, thereby freeing up loan funds for other borrowers.
Our annual GVA Serve Day is an opportunity to serve our neighbors in various ways. Volunteers serve in multiple locations around Goochland County, including Habitat for Humanity, GoochlandCares, and much more. We end our day of service with a celebration picnic in the park. We hope you'll join us for GVA Serve Day 2021!
