Introduction / History

The Bandoumu people are unreached, but also unengaged, meaning that they have few if any Christian resources or missionaries working among them.
The Bandoumu people are found in Gabon and Congo.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most of the people groups that live in Gabon are either farmers or livestock herders. They maintain an ethnic religion that is deeply rooted in their cultural identity. To change from this religion to another is tantamount to a betrayal of one's people.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The primary religion practiced by the Bandoumu is ethnic religion. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in a people's ethnic identity and conversion essentially equates to cultural assimilation. It is often interpreted as betrayal.


What Are Their Needs?

The Bandoumu people desperately need to allow Jesus Christ into their lives so He can transform their communities and provide them with abundant life.


Prayer Points

Bandoumu people need running potable water in their homes, and electricity. They need adequate roads to travel outside their communities.
This people group needs missionaries who will share Christ using appropriate music and drama.
The Bandoumu people need open hearts that will respond to the only Savior, Jesus Christ.
Pray for a Disciple-Making Movement among this people group.
