Chase Oaks Church is working alongside strong indigenous leadership to multiply churches throughout northern Ethiopia and bring holistic ministry to a largely impoverished and unreached people group. Find our more about what we are doing in Ethiopia and consider donating to the Chase Oaks Global Fund, which supports this important work.

One of the principles we appreciate about Bright Hope World, the charitable organization we’re working with in Ethiopia, is their insistence on coming alongside solid indigenous leaders that are already doing the job. We seek to join where God is already working.  Bright Hope World looks for projects and leaders that are doing good work but could use a resourcing partner.

The point person for Bright Hope in Ethiopia, Worku Tafete, was raised in Ethiopia but fled the country when he was 17 years old to escape violence. Worku is a sharp, godly leader who has a clear vision for his native area. He has been helpful as a bridge between the west (us) and his home country.
