The Purdys live and minister in Blantyre, Malawi. They currently serve in four major portfolios: Field Director for Malawi, President of Pentecostal Bible College, TELTAC coordinator, and Lead Pastor for City Pentecostal Church. Malawi is one of the world's poorest, least developed, and spiritually dark nations.
Harlyn and Helene have a goal to build leaders to change a nation. City Pentecostal Church (an international congregation of 500+) ministers to over 200 street children weekly, counsels victims of abuse, rape, HIV, etc., conducts crusades throughout the nation, disciples believers, and responds to various humanitarian needs. Pentecostal Bible College equips men and women to become godly, Spirit filled leaders through training, mentoring, and experience. TELTAC serves PAOC colleges on the African continent to assist with program, curriculum, teaching, staff, and faculty needs so they can attain quality accreditation status.
The Purdy's provide leadership for PAOC ministry in Malawi with a desire to effectively raise up an army of godly leaders who will take their place of influence in ministry, business, education, government, etc. Building leaders to change a nation is more than a logo it is a core value for the Purdys.
