Since 2011, HBC has partnered with Open Baptist Church, Gaborone-West, Botswana. The purpose of this partnership is to build the ministry capacity of the G-West congregation and promote the gospel in Botswana. Botswana is a landlocked country located in southern Africa. It shares borders with Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia.

Our partnership with G-West has begun bearing fruit! G-West has begun working with two small churches in two Basarwa villages. Basarwa is the preferred Setswana word for the San people group, who live in the Kalahari Desert.

Previous mission trips have focused on:

  • Children’s Ministry
  • Sports Ministry & Outreach
  • Adult Small Group Ministry
  • Marriage Enrichment
  • GriefShare Bootcamp & Grief Recovery Ministry
  • Worship & Music Leadership
  • Trip Purposes:

  • Worship and music leadership training. In 2015, we trained more than 70 worship leaders and groups from churches in Gaborone!
  • Sewing & quilting classes. Do you have these skills? G-West is getting ready to launch a new ministry called Proverbs 31. Be a part of equipping other women to promote fellowship & mentoring between older women & younger women, to provide for their families, and to build the capacity of G-West to minister among the Basarwa people.
