About the DAI Haiti Ministry Center
Development Associates International (DAI) is excited to welcome a new member, Haiti, to our fellowship of committed servant leader trainers, mentors, and coaches! Rather than creating a ministry from scratch, DAI wonderfully inherited one that has a long history of impact in Haiti. By joining DAI, we believe God can also use them to impact leaders in the rest of the world.
Enel Angervil, his team of trainers, and the 50+ Micah Scholars are setting a new course for their homeland through developing Christian leaders and their community.
This team of committed and passionate Haitians have a 13-year track record of tackling the most pressing issues in their community. Issues like poorly trained authoritarian leadership, creation care, poverty alleviation, women’s rights, and child rights. They train the Haitian Church and Christian leaders to embody the radical change their nation needs. They are changing Haiti from within.
What is Next
The Churches Program is so critical to the future of Haiti and DAI wants the work to continue. That’s why as they transitioned out of Haiti Partners, they found a new home in DAI. Enel, his team, and the Micah Scholars now make up the DAI Haiti Ministry Center.
In addition to continuing their strong leadership development programs, the team can now incorporate DAI's 18 workshops on Christian servant leadership principles and practices and hopes to launch DAI’s Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership.
Here’s the catch, we are not satisfied with keeping their wisdom on the island of Haiti. We want them to reach out to the Haitian diaspora worldwide, starting with their neighbor the Dominican Republic. We will translate their curriculum from Creole into French and English so we can incorporate it into DAI’s Biblical leadership training across 85 nations. And we will translate our courses into Creole.
We want Haiti to teach the world how to succeed!
We hope you will continue to invest in Micah Scholars and the Churches Program through this transition and beyond! What you have faithfully invested in Haiti is going global and we want you to be a part of it!
