The Protestant Baptist Church of Works and Missions occupies a 6 story building in Yopougon, a suburb of over one million people near Abidjan, Ivory Coast.  Began 35 years ago by Pastor Yaye Dion Robert, the congregation has swelled to over 190,000 members.  Those interested in membership in the church participate in 6 months of intensive discipleship which includes deliverance and personal attention from one of the over 2500 formally recognized volunteers in the church.  Often a person attends the church and a small group for more than nine months before receiving permission to be baptized.  Within their first year of members, each member is directed to a ministry where they are trained and released to serve according to their gifts.  This church is an army that is taking their community, their city, and their nation for the Kingdom of God.
