About Ben and Cherie Weber

Ben and Cherie both felt called to the mission field at an early age. By the time they met at Columbia International University, they were both interested in Asia. They got married in 2008 and were convinced that God was calling them to Asia. However, those doors clearly shut for them in those first few years of marriage, so they put their desire to go aside. Instead, God called them to minister and serve in local churches and ministries in North Carolina for the next 13 years. They were confirmed at Church of the Redeemer in Greensboro in 2015. In 2021, God brought the desire to go overseas back to them and they began praying in September about where God was calling them. In November they received an invitation from Bishop Manasseh in the Gahini Diocese of Rwanda to come work with him. After praying and meeting with their bishop, Alan Hawkins, they realized that this was the place God was calling them to. They are currently seeking Senders who will partner with them in this ministry.

MISSION: Our mission is to strengthen the relationship between local Anglican churches in the USA and in the Gahini Diocese as they come alongside each other to reach their communities with the Gospel. They will do this under the umbrella of the organization Friends of Gahini.

VISION: To see the churches in Gahini strengthened and encouraged through the mutual partnerships with their sister churches in the USA.
