our team

Executive Director

Troy Lewis 

Rev. Troy Lewis has over 20 years of experience forging community and faith-based collaborative efforts to transform congregations and communities to be relevant to the issues of human suffering.  In 2000, Rev. Troy and his family answered a call that would take him from his work in building up churches to transform lives and communities in the U.S. to build up the Church in Zambia to be an agent to reverse the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and other issues of human suffering. With a Master’s Degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, Rev. Troy acts as a bridge builder to facilitate partnerships in and out of Zambia to make a difference on the ground.  As the Executive Director, Troy ensures that the daily operations of the organization fulfill the vision of an empowered and compassionate Church transforming communities.  His passion is to help the church approach its potential as a positive change agent being a witness of God’s love for people and God’s justice in society.
