Church Planting

Transkei ChurchTranskei Church

The Koskys were called to the Republic of Transkei to evangelize a lost nation, the Xhosa tribe. As the Gospel was spread, tens of thousands of villagers have been saved. Discipleship with the new converts has also been a priority in outreach efforts, to build up strong believers.

The Koskys came to Africa not to simply plant churches but to see lives changed through Jesus Christ. As they persevered with the Gospel, tribal villages soon turned in to Christian villages. The new Christians began to gather regularly to pray, worship, and read the Bible. And quickly these impromptu gatherings were recognized as individual churches!

Kelly and Kathy don’t see themselves as church-planters, but, rather deliverers of the Good News. As a result of their evangelism and discipleship, the Lord has been using the mission in Transkei to establish hundreds of churches among the Xhosa.
