Valley House Construction

Valley House Construction

The current Pamoja property was bought by the ministry in 1999, with the intention of bringing the missionaries, volunteers and work to a single location. We purchased three acres which had several (very run down) buildings on the top 1.5 acres. We have slowly been working to renovate every single one of those existing buildings to make […]

Urbana is Coming!

Urbana is Coming!

We’ll be at Urbana in just a few weeks, and we’re really looking forward to it – this is an unparalleled opportunity for us to share Pamoja’s vision of discipling cultures through media with thousands of young adults.
