Reformation Bible Church


Newton Chilingulo served with Living Hope Church in Pretoria, South Africa, first as a pastoral intern, then as a pastor, for a few years after he graduated from seminary. He is originally from Malawi, and he had a burden to serve as a pastor in the country of his birth. Living Hope sent out Newton and his wife, Vanessa, as church planting missionaries in 2014. They have 1 daughter and 1 son. Newton is now pastoring Reformation Bible Church in Lilongwe, Malawi. We praise God for supplying funds to purchase land, a tent for church services, and new bathrooms. Currently, funds are being raised for their family house project and automobile.


We are very, very encouraged by how God is at work through the Chilingulos and Reformation Bible Church! God’s Word is being faithfully preached. Men and women are being discipled and are growing spiritually. Evangelism is taking place through multiple  avenues, and God has used the ministry of this church to bring people to saving faith. The Lord has provided Reformation Bible Church with godly men to serve in leadership alongside Newton, as well as a core group of lay people who are serving faithfully in the church. For all of this, we praise God!
