A partnership with Hosanna Baptist Church in the Southeast of Haiti has made possible Hosanna Bible Seminary, Camp Bossier by the Sea, Hosanna Radio, VBS/Child Evangelism programs, church plants, and primary/secondary Christian schools.
Hosanna Baptist Church was founded by Swiss missionaries in the 1930s. Many years later, the church was transferred to national leadership and has become a landmark institution in the Jacmel community. Its influence and outreach continue to produce numerous opportunities to spread the Gospel in the city and throughout the southern parts of Haiti.
These churches were founded throughout the Southeast by former Baptist Mid-Missions missionaries. They are joined together as a community of independent Baptist churches and are referred to as "sister churches." Hosanna Baptist Church is the overseeing support church.
Christian education is one of the best tools to carry the Gospel into homes and families. Hosanna leadership believes in a quality education from kindergarten through high school. The elementary and high school students are recognized for scoring 100 percent on their official state exams. Many children and their families have come to Christ through Hosanna schools.
Baptist Theological Seminary of Haiti, founded in 2008, is the only biblically solid seminary in the Southeast. Doctrinal training for pastors and spiritual leaders in a third world country is crucial to halt the spread of false doctrines in churches.
Camp Bossier by the Sea is a five-acre oceanfront camp and conference center. The setting, the outstanding facilities, and the structured programs all serve to make it a one-of-a-kind camp in Haiti—all for the glory of God. Many young people make life-changing decisions through the ministry of this camp.
Simone Cherubin is CEF-trained and teaches children’s leaders. She organizes and oversees all the Good News Clubs in the 14 sister churches throughout the Southeast. She is responsible for all VBSs and other camp-related programs.
Hosanna 102.3 FM Radio is Jacmel's first Christian station. Its signal began in January 2011 with 1500 watts of ERP and covers a 20- to 25-mile radius. The programs are aired 24/7, and many have accepted Christ through the radio's preaching and music ministry.
