Canaan is a Christian community and ministry located north of Port au Prince, Haiti. It exists to provide a holistic ministry through five unique components:
The ultimate goal of Canaan Christian School is to open our students’ eyes to the beauty and wonder of the world God has made.
Using a peanut-based food product, the nutrition initiative seeks build friendships with Haitian families in the communities surrounding Canaan to treat severely malnourished children.
For various reasons, families bring children to Canaan for help. Pastor Henri and Sister Gladys have a heart for these children, and are always trying to find ways to provide for them.
The leadership of Canaan had always envisioned opening a clinic on campus to facilitate the local medically underserved. In 2009, friends of Canaan raised money to start construction of a true clinic that we hoped would be able to provide excellent care & attract permanent Haitian medical staff. The clinic was completed in 2010 & is considered one of the best facilities in the area.
Of all that Canaan is, it is firstly and worshipping community of faith. At the very foundation, supporting and sustaining all of Canaan’s efforts, is worship and praise and devotion to Christ.
