about cornelia

sector missionary in the Democratic Republic of Congo with Overland Missions

Cornelia has been involved in missions in Africa, Europe, and Southeast Asia since 2006, and joined Overland Missions in 2019 after completing Advanced Missions Training. 

On assignment to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cornelia is part of a dynamic team pioneering the Gospel of the Kingdom to remote people in Lualaba and beyond. 

The Democratic Republic of Congo is a vast and war-torn country. Corruption has taken over and has caused multiple armies to form rebel groups — the government and outside influences grapple to take charge in different areas.

Yet, amid war, confusion, and poverty, we see tremendous breakthroughs as Congolese meet the Prince of Peace, and the Kingdom of God brings restoration from one generation to the next.

For Christ, we communicate the Gospel with emphasis on the new creation, making disciples, equipping and empowering them with the Holy Spirit, and raising indigenous leaders.
