CCI Ministry in Bahamas: In 2004, Charles & Sharon Vassallo approached the president of CCI about the need for training in Black Point. Charles and Sharon had been going to Black Point every year by sailboat and been involved in the ministries of the Holy Bible Mission. They realized, however, that they were not equipped to help the church any further. The CCI staff helped train several church leaders at Black Point. In 2011 CCI celebrated its first graduation in the Bahamas with 4 church leaders. For more information and project needs, please contact us.
