In October 2007, Lifepoint Church began a partnership with a local church in a suburb on the outskirts of Havana, Cuba. Our team works to assist the church there with construction and painting in several of their mission churches throughout the city, helps to train new pastors and leaders for the future growth of the church in Cuba and builds relationships with many people in the city who do not know Christ in a personal way.
