The Mission Gardens of Christ receives valuable moral, spiritual and material supports from Bay Area. Without these vital supports, MGC would not have been realizing its vision as it is now doing.
— Pastor Stephen Mathiang

Pastor Stephen Mathiang


The Mission Gardens of Christ (MGC) is a vibrant Christian ministry operating as the salt and the light of the world (Matt. 5:13-16). The MGC is to be a disciple witnessing to all nations for Christ and empowering people to stand for themselves and others. This is accomplished through joining hands with other change agents in and outside South Sudan, as well as focusing on leadership training, church planting and basic education. Specifically, MGC aims to:

  • Equip church leaders to carry on the principles of self-governing, self-propagation and self-supporting in the church,

  • Impart vital knowledge and skills to needy people in various sectors of life through formal and informal education and

  • Advocate for those in dire need.


How Can I Pray For Them?

  • Pray for spiritual revival in Bor, South Sudan and beyond.

  • Pray for MGC to keep focusing on its vision and mission and to get necessary resources to realize them.

  • Pray for durable peace to return to South Sudan.

  • Pray for physical and spiritual safety of all MGC workers and their families.

  • Pray for Pastor Stephen and his family for spiritual, mental and physical soundness.

  • Pray for the continued and growing unity of mind, heart and soul among Bay Area and her partners.
