The CRC IN Fiji
Local CRC churches have been established around Fiji in Suva, Labasa, Daku, Savusavu, Lakena, Navua, Sigatoka and Lautoka.
The Fiji School of Discipleship and Christian Ministry opened in 1994 with Papua New Guinean missionaries Pr David and Manoka Jaruga at the helm. This Bible School continues to run each year at our national centre in Suva.
A major strategy for reaching the ethnic Fijian and Fijian Indian peoples has been the successful establishment of a number of preschools throughout the nation. These have proven a very effective method of evangelism.
There are currently eight Bethel Crusade Preschools located around Fiji in Sigatoka, Lakena, Suva, Nacavanadi, Savusavu, Labasa, Daku and on Koro Island. The preschools are held in high esteem in each of these communities.
Our preschools are currently running a three year tax deductible project. If you would like to discover more about the project please visit Global Development Group or you can look at the Tax Deductible Projects tab of this website.
