Africa Fire Mission utilizes the CHE model as we seek to empower fire services, governments and communities.


 

+ What Is CHE?

Community Health Evangelism (CHE) is a Christ-centered educational program that is being used by hundreds of Christian churches and organizations across the globe. CHE equips communities to identify issues and mobilize resources to achieve positive, sustainable change. Lives and communities are transformed as people come to Christ and work together to address local needs. For More information on CHE: www.chenetwork.org

+ What Outcomes Are We Expecting?

The Success of our training activities can be measured by the following transformational indicators. These are the outcomes that are consistently seen in mature CHE programs around the world, and what we are looking for in the lives of those we train. We know that this transformation can only be accomplished with long term commitment to the fire communities where we work.
