The Gospel at the Heart
We believe the Gospel is the power to transform lives (Rom. 1:16). The Gospel is good news for the poor and the orphan because it is through Christ’s poverty that we become rich and through Christ’s sacrifice that we are adopted through faith in Him (2 Cor. 8:9, Rom. 8:15). Because of this amazing truth, the Gospel is at the heart of all that we do in helping orphans and impoverished children.
Christian Education as a Church Planting Strategy
The work of BCA begins with our desire to give each child a distinctly Christian education through our child sponsorship program. Our schools are the main vehicle for reaching the orphan and the poor with the Gospel. We are committed to implementing a rigorous Christian education so that children will be equipped for their future vocations and a life in submission to the Gospel (Deut. 6:4-9).
Because our schools, at their core, are a church planting strategy, our end goal is not simply a Christian education. Our end goal is the same as the church! It’s making disciples, and seeing those disciples follow Jesus in healthy churches. At each one of our schools, we have partnered with church planters to plant a church at each location.
We believe the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) was given to the Church. Therefore, we seek to serve and empower local churches in fulfilling Christ’s command of being witnesses “to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). We partner with theologically aligned churches to support the work of our schools and church planting efforts.
Where We Serve
BCA has two school locations in Zambia, Africa. Our first location began in 2011 in the Copperbelt region of Zambia, and our second location began in 2014 in the Northern region of Zambia.
In January 2019, BCA opened a school location in Northwest Africa, partnering with a ministry called The 10/40 Project. The exact country’s name has been withheld for security.
