ABOUT THE CHURCH
Eglise Nouvelle Jerusalem in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, has approximately 6,000 members, and they hold three services every Sunday. The church also houses a school of 600 children in kindergarten through primary school (6th grade). Eglise Nouvelle Jerusalem is part of a denomination called Mission Evangelique de la Nouvelle Jerusalem d'Haiti, a denomination with 20 churches around the country. Eglise Nouvelle Jerusalem is the "mother church," and Pastor Yvon holds the position of Surintendant (presiding elder, or Superintendent) of the denomination. The church has a heart for reaching out to children who have lost their parents. Eglise Nouvelle Jerusalem seeks to both place these children in loving families and to empower the church congregation to serve and care for those families as a picture of the Gospel.
