AFCA Village Ministries

AFCA Village in Port au Prince, Haiti, was the vision of Lydie Noel, wife of Partners founder, Dr. Jean Claude Noel. Over a quarter of a century ago, Lydie had compassion on the homeless ladies and children on the streets of Port au Prince. With the help of Christian friends in the United States and elsewhere a ten-acre parcel of empty land on the outskirts of Port au Prince was purchased.

Initially the ministry provided housing, training and employment for the women, and offered education for their children. Over the years the work has grown, along with the surrounding community it serves. Many short-term teams and individuals have contributed their labors and financial support. Today the ministry is comprised of a 200 member church, 300 student Christian school, clinic and several duplex housing units.

Pastor Renes Deciere

Rev. Renes Deciere has been lead pastor of the AFCA Baptist Church since its founding in 1998. Pastor Renes was born in 1965, and raised in Les Cayes, Haiti. He attended the National School, and then went to professional school to learn mechanics. His older brother shared Jesus with him, and in 1981 he accepted the Lord as his personal Savior. He was baptized in 1983 and in 1986 he moved to Port-au-Prince and finished high school.

Renes began listening to Rev. Claude Noel, then pastor of the Nazon Evangelical Church, on the radio. Renes wanted to become a member of Claude Noel's church and in 1987 started attending it. Renes met his wife, Monique, at Nazon and they were married in 1991. They have a son, Billy. Monique has been on staff with Partners with Haiti since 1989. She directed the Bethany Project for 23 years and now is the coordinator of PWH Sister Church ministries in Haiti.

In 2013, Pastor Renes received advanced training in Community Development from St. Francis Xavier University, Coady International Institute, Antigonish, New Brunswick. His passion is to disciple younger believers spiritually, and to enhance their professional and entrepreneurial skills.

In January 2017, Pastor Renes was installed as the President of APCH, the association partner of PWH. In this role he superintends the ministries founded in Haiti by Dr. Claude Noel, and others. Monique Deciere, Pastor Renes' wife, is the director of APCH Sister Church Ministries.
