There’s an oft-quoted African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Two GACX members, Horn of Africa and New Covenant Missions, have been partnering together to accelerate the growth of multiplying churches in Ethiopia — and beyond.

After meeting a few years ago at a GACX Global Forum, Markos Zemede (Horn of Africa) and Erik Laursen (New Covenant) began taking deliberate steps to partner together. The result has maximized the staff and resources of each organization, allowing them to increase their combined momentum.

Editor’s note: GACX’s videographer, Torry Norling, traveled to the South Omo region of Ethiopia in February 2019 to capture the story of what God has been doing through this partnership.  He previously shared some first-hand observations about the trip that provided a greater context fo the work happening here.
