Since the start of Agape Mission (now known as Agape Mission Alliance) in 2009, God has given Rev. Peter T. Mang the vision for church planting and multiplication movements in Myanmar. Prior to serving as a church planter, he served as an itinerant evangelist for 2 years from 2009 to 2011. Peter and Alice are truly committed to doing God’s work in God’s way. With a high fervor and deep conviction of God’s call to the ministry, they have had God’s direction to start a new church plant in Hlaingthayar, Yangon.
Peter initiated a mission mobilization and church planting project in Agape Mission Alliance. On September 6, 2011, after much prayer and having received a confirmation, Peter and his family moved to Hlaingthayar to plant multiplying churches. The fund is established with self-support and generous support of those who share our God-given vision. Through a right discernment of God’s leadership, a faith-life has begun and a church planting movement was started from a humble beginning.
Agape Church conducted its first corporate worship service on Sunday, September 23, 2012. Worship services were conducted at a rented 2-story house of Agape Mission Center located in 13 Quarter, Hlaingthayar. In September 2013, worship services were moved to a rented apartment of Agape Center located in 6 Quarter, Hlaingthayar. A few months later a rented apartment was closed due to prohibiting restraints, and we gather weekly in small churches in homes since then.
The Impact of the Gospel
When we started Agape Church in Hlaingtharyar on Sunday, September 23, 2012, our attendees were just a small group of 12 people. Our beginning may seem small, but the progress is to greatness. We envision simple house church movements that accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
We are committed to seeing a church grow and multiply. Agape Church grew from a small group of people meeting in a tiny house once a week, providing small groups Bible study on a regular basis, to multiplying disciples making disciples.
We provide creative approaches to evangelism, discipleship, and mission mobilization, and develop innovative solutions that facilitate church planting, multiplication and growth movements that are both thoroughly biblical and fundamentally strategic.
