CCR & KICS
Christ’s Church Rwanda (CCR) and Kigali International Community School (KICS) are thriving ministries, that are the result of the prayers and actions of faithful Springs families and others who believed God was bigger than our fears. Ultimately, four Springs families served as missionaries in Rwanda between 2005 and 2021. These families and the many Springs families who have supported these ministries are a small reflection of The Springs’ history of sending and supporting missionaries and ministries around the world for decades.
CCR’s current senior pastor is a former Rwandan Presidential Scholar who studied at Oklahoma Christian University. He and a national team lead CCR as it seeks to share the Good News of the Gospel through preaching, teaching, small groups, and community partnership.
KICS is PreK-12 international Christian School led by an independent board under owner agencies including ROC Partners founded, chaired, and served by Springs' members. With over 300 students from as many as 30 nationalities in a given year, KICS is fostering the intellectual and spiritual growth of young people with the potential for global and generational impact.
