Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Cambodia, especially in the rural parts, is poor, agrarian, vulnerable, and uneducated. The country as a whole is also almost completely void of Christian faith. The people have very urgent physical needs (food, clean water, medical treatment) and urgent spiritual need (they need to know God and His love). There is also a great opportunity to educate and equip Cambodians for a better life and a better future.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our primary goal is to spread the love of God through Jesus Christ. That means, for us, providing physical help in the form of clean water (drilling wells), food, education, medical treatments by qualified doctors and nurses, as well as providing for orphaned children. It also means providing spiritual help to a people who mostly do not know God or the saving grace of Jesus. Our long term goal is to, not only help rural Cambodians improve their physical and spiritual well-being, but to train Cambodian leaders to carry on the work and ministry and equip them for self-sufficiency. We want to teach and train and then ask Cambodians to carry the torch, teaching and training others. In this way, we hope to change generational physical and spiritual poverty.

CCM owns and operates a medical clinic and preaching school in Cambodia through an NGO. We also coordinate annual medical mission trips with dozens of medical personnel both from the USA and from Cambodia. Our preaching students are educated in Bible and church-planting, but also in farming and agriculture, often times construction, and English. We have volunteer teachers who travel (at their own cost) to Cambodia through the year, but we provide regular teaching via video conferencing that is both effective and almost free. Then our students go among the people helping where they can with extra food, sharing Jesus, teaching and serving, and most recently helping the area we work in recover from disastrous flooding.

Our primary staff member, Sokhom Hun, is a hero. He is a native Cambodian and a refugee to the US from the Pol Pot and Khmer Rouge Cambodian genocide (1975-1979). He chose to return to a place full of bad memories to share the love of God with his people. He has an incredible work ethic, humbly serves and leads and sets a fantastic example for all those who know him. Sokhom knows the culture and the language. He has citizenship and connections that allow him unique opportunities. More than that, he loves his people and is committed to helping them. Sokhom returned to Cambodia in 2009 to share the gospel and to physically help the poor of his home country. He is our man-on-the-ground and runs the day-to-day operations with a small but trustworthy group of Christian Cambodians.

Because Sokhom and our students and workers are Cambodian citizens, they allow us to work in ways we couldn't otherwise. Together, we make a great team for the mission of God's love in Cambodia.

CCM established a headquarters for our school and medical clinic. Already we have graduates who are actively helping in different regions. Sokhom and the school mentor and oversee students, past and current, and hold regular Leader Care and Training Seminars (6 in 2018). Our medical mission trip travels from village to village treating roughly 12,000 people each year (medical, dental, optical). We have drilled over 200 clean water wells. We have 3 doctors that run our medical clinic, which provides daily care to the surrounding area. We have cared for over 100 orphans and are currently caring for around 40, providing them with an education and regular health checkups. CCM has also served impoverished areas during flood disasters the last few years. We help relocate affected people, supply rice for food and farming at no cost, and treat medical issues in the villages we go to.

We hope to expand our educational offerings over the next few years. This effort would be spearheaded and worked by students and others that CCM has trained. We also are handing off more and more responsibility to Cambodian people. We take our goal to equip for self-sufficiency very seriously and have made great progress toward financial independence and increasing Cambodian oversight of the work in the last few years.
