Ethiopia is the newest country in which CMC International operates. With the conclusion of the trip there in June 2009, it has become clear that God is sparking a church planting movement in that country. We became acquainted with many pastors from multiple denominations from Addis Ababa and across the country. Many of these pastors have embraced the CMC vision, and have already committed to the church multiplication work that we presented. We have also met several people who are established leaders among the churches. We are thankful to have a new country coordinator, Mezgabu Tsemru.
Country Coordinator: Ethiopia
Pastor Mezgebu Tsemru is an ordained pastor and one of the founders of Addis Ababa Emmanuel United Church and Board secretary of Ethiopia Emmanuel United Church.

He has also traveled extensively to different parts of the Country to serve and support planting of similar reformation movement.
