GETTING TO KNOW AQUILA FOUNDATION SOUL CENTER
Aquila Foundation Soul Center is committed to providing learning, support and various resources for Christians and Christian leaders around the world.
The founders of Aquila Foundation, Clint and Lida Dias, have over 25 years of ministry, bible school and church planting experience, as well as owning a variety of successful businesses over the last thirty-odd years. Clint and Lida Dias are committed to sharing their knowledge and experience with others to help them grow in their faith and leadership (both Christian and MinistryBiz.) The Soul Center will be supported by Ashley Deutschmann (a Christian Leaders Alliance Ordained Minister) who also has over 25 years of secular senior management experience, and a host of other team members mentioned on the Aquila Foundation website
Aquila Foundation Soul Center is inspired by the belief in the power of working together and using education to empower lives and enrich futures. The lead pastor and co-founder, Lida Dias, is committed to guiding and empowering students on their educational journey of faith. The aim of Aquila Foundation is to create an environment where faith is cultivated, knowledge is gained, and practical skills are developed, enabling Christians to make a lasting impact in their community.
Aquila Foundation Soul Center will draw inspiration from Isaiah 40:31, which says, "But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
The mission of Aquila Foundation Soul Center is to provide Christians and Christian leaders with the resources and support they need to soar on wings like eagles, to run and not grow weary, and to walk and not be faint.
THE SOUL CENTER FOCUS AREAS:
1. LOCAL CHURCH
Aquila Foundation already has a local physical church in Zambia to provide a place for worship and fellowship for Christians in the area. The local church is a place where Christians can come together to worship, pray, participate in the sacraments, be baptised, and learn from the Bible. The church also provides a platform for Christians to serve their community and share the gospel with those around them. We currently support a local school, whose facilities we use as a temporary meeting place.
2. CHURCH PLANTING MINISTRY
Aquila Foundation Soul Center will focus on biblically based education to equip and mentor students to become community ministers or Christian leaders. The church planting ministry will train and support individuals/groups who are called to plant churches in their communities. The ministry will also provide resources and support to existing churches to help them grow and thrive.
3. ONLINE (EVANGELISM, RESOURCES AND EDUCATION) MINISTRY
Aquila Foundation Soul Center will offer an online ministry at aquilafoundation.org to provide evangelism, resources, podcasts, and education to Christians around the world. The online ministry will provide a platform for Christians to connect with each other, share resources, and learn from the Bible. The ministry will also provide evangelism tools to help Christians share the gospel with those around them. We currently also offer podcasts to help grow and nurture Christians globally.
4. MENTOR CENTER
Aquila Foundation Soul Center will establish a face-to-face and online mentor center to provide mentoring and support to Christians and Christian leaders globally. The mentor center will provide a platform for Christians to connect with mentors who can help them grow in their faith and leadership. The center will also provide training and resources to mentors to help them be effective in their ministry.
5. EDUCATION CENTER
Aquila Foundation Soul Center will offer biblically based online education to provide Christian support and resources to Christians and Christian leaders around the world. The education (eLearning) center will provide training and resources to Christians who want to deepen their understanding of the Bible and grow in their faith and take on leadership roles in their communities. The center will also provide training and resources to Christian leaders to help them be effective in their ministry.
Aquila Foundation is a government-registered ‘non-governmental organization’ (NGO) based in Zambia, dedicated to church planting locally, and to providing local and global training for Christian ministers and church leaders through our eLearning platform.
Inspired by the words of Isaiah 40:31, we believe in empowering Christian learners and leaders to soar on wings like eagles.
