Most have heard the tragic story of "The Lost Boys of Sudan." Yet a far greater unreported tragedy is the story of the lost souls of Sudan, and this is what The Sudan Project is all about.

This outreach is sponsored and overseen by the Mt. Juliet Church of Christ in Mt. Juliet, Tenn. Director of the project is Don Humphrey, a former minister and elder with a degree in Bible from Harding University and a masters degree in communication from the University of Northern Colorado. Several of the other staff members are pictured below.

The primary goal of The Sudan Project is to establish God's church throughout the country of South Sudan. We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God and obedience to it to be the key to life for everyone, both now and in eternity.

Rather than paying American missionaries to move there and start churches that will be forever dependent on American support, our method is to prepare native Sudanese Christians to preach and take the gospel to their own villages and to thus create strong, self-supporting congregations--a plan that is seeing great success!

If your congregation is interested in knowing more about mission work in South Sudan, we would be glad to come share an exciting visual presentation. Just call us at (256) 333-2081 and speak to Barry Smith.
