Our Mission

Liberté Ministries promotes Freedom in everything we do.

Freedom in Christ

Freedom in Education

Freedom in Economic Self Sufficiency

Liberte’ Ministries (Liberty in French) began in 2010 as a response to the earthquake that devastated much of Haiti. Once relief work shifted to recovery and then long term planning; the Haiti School of Biblical Studies (HSBS) began. HSBS is a 4 year, intensive Bible track that equips students to be both practitioners and communicators of the Good News. Students beginning their third year, who are in good standing academically, are offered the opportunity to receive a scholarship for vocational training in a variety of occupations. As the work grew and doors opened God provided an opportunity for involvement in the Lillavois Orphanage and school. Serving 50 children ages 1-18, the orphanage provides a safe and secure home for children in need. The elementary school not only offers education to the children living in the orphanage but also to children in the Lillavois community. Capacity for the school is 231 children.

Our Team

In all we do our all-volunteer team is dedicated to promoting freedom; first and foremost in Jesus Christ. We also believe that quality, biblical education and empowerment to be economically self-sufficient offers freedom as well. As we serve our family in Haiti we wish only to walk beside them and support them as they do amazing things for God.

Curriculum

The academic calendar begins each year in October with a one-week intensive class.  Fourclasses are offered in the months of November, December, January and February that meet for eight weeks each on nights and weekends.  A second one-week intensive class is offered in March followed by two classes in April and May for eight weeks each on nights and weekends.  The year concludes with two one-week intensive classes in July.  This format allows us to work with the Haitian school schedule and allow time for students who are employed or attending university to maintain that arrangement.  Based on this schedule a student attending full time will complete their degree, forty courses, in four years.  Students who cannot participate in full time classes may attend part time.
