We are honored to partner with the Grace Alliance Church in Malawi, Africa. These dedicated followers of Jesus are determined to bring transformation to their community.

Rev. Ernest Phiri founded the Grace Alliance Church in Malawi in 2006. He provides leadership to more than 30 churches in Malawi as well as pastoring the local church at the Grace Center. Pastor Phiri also serves as Circle of Hope Director in Malawi. He manages our programs and oversees the care of the children.

Other pastors in the Grace Alliance Church include: Pastor Ngwangwa, Pastor Mwantisi, Pastor David, Pastor Byson, Pastor Mtongola, Pastor Jemiton and Pastor Adam.

One key element of our partnership is team work. For example: The Grace Alliance Church molds bricks to build buildings, Circle of Hope provides cement to build the buildings. The Grace Alliance Church sees the need for a preschool in their community. They start a preschool. Circle of Hope partners with the school to help pay teacher salaries and provide food for the children. We have seen that our partnership really works. Amazing transformation is taking place in our community, but it is driven by the local community and the needs they choose to address.

Enjoy a taste of Malawian music as you scroll through the picture of the Grace Alliance Church. This soundtrack was produced by our own Nsipe Praise Team at the Grace Center! To purchase the full album, visit our COH Store!

Song Translation:

I've Been Set Free

I've been set free on Calvary.

My life was marked by sin, but now because of Jesus, I've been set free.
