Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Development

Mission: Global Vision Citadelle Ministries is on a mission to bring the hope and light of Christ into the darkest places of Haiti. We do this by building the local church, impacting communities, and supporting children. We're different because we use the local Haitian church as the base for our outreach, we believe in getting buy-in and contribution from the people we serve, and we have a predominately Haitian staff (97%).

Target demographics: Rural Haitian Communities, children and students

Geographic areas served: Haiti

Programs: We empower 70 local Haitian churches with over 10,000 weekly attendees with spiritual and physical assistance though building projects, leader training, and operational support. We impact communities with medical programs that treat over 20,000 people each year and clean water projects that save lives. We support children by providing education to over 7,000 through our 24 schools as well as a home to over 130 in our orphanage.

This is my second time to GVCM in the last year. This is a first-class operation and very well run. I love their concept of working with the local churches to find and fill the needs of the local people. I think everyone knows Haiti has massive needs. But just throwing money or supplies is not the answer. Like any major problem, you need a well thought out game plan in order to maximize the RIO. These guys seem to do it better than I have seen with many of the other nonprofits. Don't get me wrong, there are many other great non-profits working in Haiti, I'm just saying, you can't go wrong helping GVCM further God's work in this wonderful country.

I have been to GVCM multiple times. I am often asked why I keep going back. I could tell story after story of why, but my response is "just come with me one time and you will understand". The children and staff at GVCM are precious. I always go with the intent to be a blessing and come away being so blessed by them. GVCM is an awesome place for Mission Trips! It is a refuge for over 130 children from the broken world around them where they are taught to rely on Jesus and to live for Him. It is also awesome to give to an organization that you can go to and see the work the Lord is doing!

This was my second visit to the GVCM compound near Mirebalais, Haiti. The first trip was an exploratory mission with another church member. This first visit convinced me that GVCM had an effective model for rendering gospel laden service to the Haitian people. I came back eight months later with a small team of four and an extra $2,500 that our church had raised for missions project. We were able to present $2,000 cash on site which was immediately applied to a contract to provide much needed reinforcement and repair of the security wall that surrounds the GVCM compound. We were actually able to observe and in a minor way participate in this wall work for the week our team was in Haiti. We applied $500 to purchasing school supplies and other children items and over-the -counter drugs for the GVCM medical clinic. We saw individual children who were thrilled to receive new backpacks and the medical clinic was very appreciative for the augmentation to their medicinal inventory.

Additionally, my small team went through old collections of construction material and organized and sorted and stored them in a new materials storage mini-warehouse on the property. We also participated in some much needed carpentry work. If that wasn’t enough, we led two 2-hour mini-VBS sessions at two different rural church/schools. Each mini-VBS was attended by over 150 children. The children immensely enjoyed the games, tasty snacks we brought, the translated Bible lessons and the hugs and attention.

Lastly, we attended the GVCM worship service and our presence along with another team was a clear encouragement to the poor struggling Christians of the area. Our traveling in the immediate area and interaction with Haitians continually opened our hearts and minds to greater works that we might be a part of in future mission trips.

I had the absolute blessing to work alongside some of the most generous, caring, and God-honoring individuals over the past 6 years while serving with GVCM in Haiti. I was able to see both the heart behind each aspect of the ministry as well as the fruit of the labor. I was blessed to see how GVCM ministers not only to the people across the countryside of Haiti but also to individuals in America, giving them an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ to their brothers and sisters in another country.

The foundation of this ministry is honoring the Lord, the vision of the leadership is on the Kingdom of God, and the heartbeat of every dollar spent is to further the reach of the gospel into the heart of every individual who has ears to hear.

One specific thing I find to be very special and unique about this ministry is the way it allows each person with a heart to serve Jesus by using the gifts and passions He has imparted to them to do just that. There is no cookie-cutter approach to ministry or missions. They have a vision and a mission, listen to the heart of those who desire to serve, and work with the Lord to find a way to fit the two together.

If you are looking for a way to bring your 'loaves and fish' to the Lord and watch him multiply it a thousand fold...this ministry will help you do just that, however that looks in your life.

May the Lord bless your desire to serve His children.

I was very impressed with the whole setup and philosophy of ministry behind GVCM. It is one thing to read about the ministry and hear all that they do, it is a whole other thing to visit the ministry, serve with them and really see how they use the donations that come in. You get a great sense of just how far $5 can go and that they look to make the most impact possible with the funds you give. Their model of Church, Community, Children and the purpose behind each pillar of that model is one any person can get behind. We were able to see that the churches they help are, in turn, impacting the communities around them in amazing ways. I feel very confident, as a senior pastor, to encourage my congregation to look to give and partner with GVCM. I hope to have more teams come down and serve in missions capabilities as well as give to this ministry. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, caring and hospitable and the accommodations are also fantastic. If you are looking for a ministry that is reaching the ones in the places often forgotten about, you need to look into GVCM. If you are looking for a ministry to partner with for short term missions, you should look into GVCM. If you are looking for a ministry to think about serving in a full-time status, you should look into GVCM.

I love the work that GVCM does. We were invited to visit GVCM to explore all the different facets of work that they do. The core work that they do not only involves helping to support the churches in Haiti, but they also help setup schools and orphanages.

My friend and I stayed at GVCM for about 5 days. The power and water is not always consistent, however that comes with being in Haiti. Overall it was great fun seeing how the love of God is lived out by GVCM. Would love to come back again!

I love Global Vision, it's an organization full of people committed to loving the people of Haiti to God Himself. After many trips, my heart is full of moments watching and being transformed. Using the tools of teaching, preaching, medical, food and prayer God changes lives and hearts. I love joining God as He redeems His children.

I started going to GVCM in Haiti about 5 years ago and have loved every minute of it. The staff at the orphanage are like my second family and will forever have a piece of my heart. I go several times a year and will continue to do so. Pastor Yves is an amazing man of God and a very special person to me and my family.

Myself and my church, Community Life Church-Shawnee, KS, has been working with GVCM and Yves for over ten years. This has been the best experience we have ever had with a Global Partner. We have found GVCM to be a ministry of Godliness, purpose and integrity. Our partnership with one of the GVCM churches in Colora, Haiti has helped connect our congregation to another church to spread the Gospel of Jesus beyond our borders. It is truly a partnership were we have the resources to support them but we get the best of the partnership their prayers. I would encourage any church, individual or family to become a sponsor and you will not be disappointed. Pastor Chris Winn, Lead Pastor

It has been a blessing to be a part of this great organization. God has put the Phophetes in my path and I have tried my best to fulfill his vision for the organization. Thru the Lord’s blessing and strength I was able to make several trips to the mother land and I am praying that the Lord direct my path that someday I can really be token of blessings thru this ministry for the people of Haiti and for His glory.

The amount of Love that comes from the children and staff overwhelms us each time we drive into the orphanage. I would recommend visiting the Island whenever possible.

I have recently returned from my fifth trip to share in the ministry of GVCM. Two of the trips included medical personnel from the congregation I served at the time. GVCM’s relationship with the people they serve opened wonderful doors to bring needed medical attention. The last two trips have been to provide training to the pastor’s in the network of almost 60 churches across Haiti associated with GVCM. Nearly 80 pastors, deacons and others attended the teaching conferences. Their joy and commitment to serving Christ is evident, even in the face of the many challenges they face. This network of GVCM churches provides the foundation of the GVCM ministry, but does not fully define its scope. Seventeen school educated thousands of students. (80% of education in Haiti comes from private schools.) Over twenty other ministries, including the Vision Farm, a new medical clinic, a school for the deaf and orphanage for 130 children expand GVCM’s ministry to tens of thousands each year.
I believe the indigenous Haitian leadership of GVCM gives special heart to the work they do. Those who are engaged day to day in envisioning and engaging ministry know the culture and know the people. They serve with dedication and generosity in seeking to respond to the multitude of ministry opportunities in their nation.

We were invited by our pastor to go with him to provide a pastor's conference for the pastor's affiliated with GVCM in Haiti. We wanted to learn more about the behind the scenes missionary work as well. We were not only pleasantly surprised with the comforts of our room and board, but the details and planning, even when we went off the plan, were accommodated without hesitation. And the kids are wonderful! So many wonderful people, we will definitely be back.

I joined a team from my church for a mission trip through GVCM in January 2019, and I was very impressed by the work they do. The children at the orphanage are well cared for and educated, giving them so much more opportunity than most of their countrymen. They were fed and had access to medical care. The staff were very helpful to our team, enabling us to serve the partner churches/schools and the pastors who lead them. We would not have been able to navigate the culture of their culture to offer any help to the people without their support with planning, translation, safety concerns, negotiating business, and host of other issues. Not only are they tremendous in the work that they perform on behalf of the people of Haiti, they are a conduit for teams of people to be able to come in and have an impact as well.

I had the amazing privilege to travel to GVCM in the winter and I will never forgot the time I had there! All the staff and pastor Yves where so welcoming and caring! I love all that GVCM is doing in Haiti with their schools, churches, and orphanages!! I got to meet some of the sweetest kids and I love them all dearly! One of the things I love it that they have a deaf house and school and I learned sign language so I was able to talk and connect with them! If you ever have the opportunity to visit GVCM you definitely should!!

I have had the great privilege of getting to know the people of Haiti, more specifically the people of GVCM over the the last 3 years. I am proud to say that the people of GVCM have become family. It has been a blessing and an honor to serve alongside GVCM on several different levels. GVCM welcomes and loves everyone with open arms and a serving heart.
The heart of GVCM is truly to serve. With 58 churches, 17 schools and All God's Children Orphanage, GVCM is truly bringing the hope and light of Christ into the darkest depths of Haiti. I have had the opportunity to see with my own two eyes the great impact that GVCM is making, not just on each of the communities that they have churches and schools located in, but truly the entire country of Haiti. It seems as if every Haitian I've ever talked to outside of GVCM, whether in the airport or a surrounding community, knows of the kind heart that Pastor Yves so fully and so willingly loves others with. I've never met a GVCM Pastor who has ever not prayed over myself and the people I am with. I've never encountered a GVCM Staff Member who has ever hesitated to serve and assist however they may be able to. When I travel to Haiti, I have the opportunity to stay at All God's Children Orphanage and the children will change your life. I have developed deep relationships with many of the children in the orphanage who have rocked my world and changed my way of thinking and loving. I couldn't be more thankful for the work that God is doing through Pastor Yves, the Staff, Pastors, Children and Ministry of GVCM. Mesi Jezi!

GVCM is an amazing organization that impacts many lives in Haiti. They are resourceful with the resources they have and work extremely hard to meet the needs of as many people as possible. They support many communities develop by helping to provide for the physical and spiritual needs of the people they serve. While staying at GVCM, the staff is extremely hospitable and willing to help in any way they can, if you have a question or need something all you have to do is ask and they will do whatever they can to help your stay go smoothly. They value each and every one of the children in their care at all God’s Children Orphanage and do all they can to help each child reach their fullest potential. I am so thankful for all that GVCM does in Haiti and I am so thankful that I have gotten to play a small part in serving with them.

I have been visiting GVCM for almost a year. I have made five trips to the orphanage because my first trip opened my eyes to not only the needs of the children there but to how even the smallest work of kindness can go a very long way, both materially and especially emotionally or spiritually. The orphanage has always been so welcoming and thankful for anything I’ve done and has taught me so much about human connection. Their staff give their whole lives to care for the children and the families around them. It’s inspired me to do the same.

I recently traveled to GVCM in Dec 2018 with other volunteers from my home church. From the moment we arrived to the airport to the moment we left GVCM was there to welcome us and assist us the whole way through. Entering GVCM was like entering a safe haven in the middle of Haiti. They provide a safe space for the volunteers and orphans to walk hand in hand and connect with one another. Even more they provide a life for the orphans that guarantee them protection, food, shelter, community, education, a clinic and a church. GVCM is more than an organization, it’s a big family with the Lord as their foundation. The amount of love I received during my one week visit was inspiring. To say a visit to GVCM is life changing is an understatement. It’s been over a month and my heart is still full. GVCM has encouraged me to live a life that gives more for the Lord and for others. I encourage everyone to step out in faith and visit GVCM at least once in their life. What you end up receiving is far more than you could ever give back.

GVCM is an absolutely wonderful organization that does such amazing work in the lives of Haitian communities. I led a team of young adults to Haiti in December of 2018, and was welcomed immensely by the staff there. We were able to work alongside Paster Yves and many others that work at the GVCM orphanage and school to distribute shoes to the kids in the surrounding areas. This organization goes above and beyond for their visitors, but their compassion and love for the people of Haiti is what sets them apart. This organization is God-honoring, and aims to share the gospel and the love of Christ with the people of Haiti in any way they can. I would recommend GVCM to anyone who is looking for an organization in Haiti to work alongside with!

I’ve traveled to Haiti and supported GVCM for many years. It’s been exciting to see this ministry’s growth and success in changing the future of Haiti. The leadership is prayerful, selfless and driven. This ministry has changed and improved countless lives in Haiti and America, including mine. I strongly encourage support of GVCM and travel to Haiti and allow GVCM to change your life too.

The GVCM organization has truly blessed many, many lives with very little funding. With over 130 children, ~58 churches, ~17 schools and a large sustained farm this operation is extremely busy. Every visit I have made has been truly an awesome experience. The staff does all that they can to in sure a good experience for visitors.

GVCM has made a difference in 1000’s of lives- Haitians and the volunteers that visit Haiti. Pastor Yves is a man of integrity who has sacraficed much to help is fellow Haitians. I have traveled to Haiti for many years and have seen so many improvements it is hard to even name all the good that has been accomplished!

Thousands of kids attend schools sponsored by GVCM, a farm is producing food, wells have been dug in many communities, a clinic has recently built and every year multiple remote villages receive medical attention, over 100 kids are growing up in a safe home receiving education and food and love, a library was established, a radio station promotes Christian living, homes have been built for widows, preachers are trained and churches are growing...the list goes on and on.

If you want an experience and opportunity that will change your life and improve the situation for those in Haiti, volunteer for a trip to GVCM and serve with other like minded people or be blessed by giving funds to help the Gospel be lived out in action!

Global Vision Citadelle Ministries has been a huge blessing to our church family. We have brought over 100 people over several trips to serve the people of Haiti alongside GVCM. We have seen God move in many ways in the lives of our team and the communities we have visited. The orphanage is an amazing place to identify and visit the children you can sponsor. That's right, you can visit the child you sponsor. There are several churches and schools within the GVCM network that you can serve in many ways as well. Pastor Yves is a man of integrity and his staff is a great team to work with.

Over the years I have helped dozens of orphanages from Cameroon to Calcutta, where in the 1970s I once volunteered in Mother Teresa’s Home for the Dying Destitute. I know the difference between service and disservice. But whether Christian or non-Christian when the leader ( in this case GVCM’s head pastor) and volunteers live far better than the orphans they come to serve, then ask yourself, who is the orphanage really for? And when the GVCM’s Haitian accountant drives a nice Montero 4x4, but asks for sponsors at the orphanage’s online site, as does the pastor’s brother-in-law, then what is going on? These are just two examples. And while the pastor and (spoiled) American volunteers live with air-con, screens on the windows of their nice rooms, and eat meat everyday, the 130 Haitian orphans live without all of these. So then what is it all about? Is this a model to follow or to oppose?

I voluntarily came to GVCM towards the end of February 2017 and seeded a nice nursery of 3000 Hawaiian papayas in grow bags at their 40 acre farm. One papaya in the area costs over 125 Haitian gourdes, or about $2. And the kids at GVCM rarely eat any fruit. Soon I began some investigations into disparities and irregularities I was witnessing.

The end of my time at GVCM suddenly happened March 5th, 2017, ironically about one hour after the head pastor gave his sermon. A US woman volunteer said something to the head pastor about certain things I mentioned, though I know not what. And once before she lied to me, so who knows what she said?

Suddenly, much to my surprise, the head pastor approached me seething in anger. He told me to leave immediately. Going then to pack my things he followed me to my room. But within a few seconds he violently attacked from behind and pushed me very hard sending me stumbling forward. Then he threatened to call the police and have me thrown in jail. “For what,"I asked? On my way up the stairs to my room he grabbed me from behind again almost making us fall. Again he threatened to have me thrown in jail. He refused to let me get my things and told me to leave without them. Of course I refused. Finally he and the woman, who precipitated all this, got my stuff and took it down for me to pack. “This is how you treat someone, who has just spent some days seeding 3000 Hawaiian papayas,” I ask the head pastor? “I don’t care about those papayas,” he barked back. Then when leaving I was refused exit by the orphanage’s 24 hour guard armed with a stubby 19 guage shot gun. Only when the head pastor gave him permission to open the huge steel gate could I leave.

The Friday night before the head pastor slept in Port-au-Prince’s 5 star Marriott Hotel, which overlooks one of the world’s worst slums. When departing I wished him, ”Enjoy the view!” And the night before he and his brother and two other pastor-d-zastors paid another hotel $320. I refused and slept outside, which they didn’t like. But while they spent over $500 for two short nights, yet the orphans have no fans and screens on their windows to keep out the hoards of mosquitos. I guess the head pastor feels he is entitled and learned all this from his father, who also runs an orphanage in Haiti. But one can one expect from an orphanage named after Haiti’s horrendous Citadel, whose 19th century builder, Haiti’s king Henri Christophe, murdered thousands?

So now I know that the man Ron, whose post GVCM people try to disparage, is correct.

At GVCM, we believe that serious allegations deserve a thoughtful response. This particular reviewer alleges that GVCM takes better care of its staff and guests than the children in its care, that our executive director/ head pastor lives large, and that we kicked out the reviewer for no stated reason. We will respond to each of these allegations in individual comments (due to word count restrictions). In general, the reviewer assumes that all people who serve the poor must live in poverty comparable to the people they serve. By extension, this would imply that everyone who serves the homeless in the U.S. should also give up their homes. We think this approach is a bad way to encourage people with talent and treasure to share their resources with the poor. Furthermore, our organization did ask the reviewer to leave, because of his malicious behavior, and because our responsibility to the people we serve is greater than the fear of offending someone who may leave an unpleasant review.

First, our Haitian staff is paid the prevailing market wage for the services they perform. Just like anywhere else in the world, pay is commensurate with an employee’s level of responsibility and skills. We know that a job advertisement for an accountant that says the accountant would be “required to live in desperate poverty as a condition of employment” would not result in us getting a quality accountant who would faithfully manage the funds people entrust to us. We’re proud to provide our staff with quality jobs in a country that has chronic unemployment. As far as visitors, they all pay for the amenities they receive as well as simultaneously donating to help us provide for the people we serve. In the winter, many of our North American visitors are coming from places that are 50+ degrees colder than Haiti. If we didn’t provide air-conditioning, many would experience heat related illnesses and few would return to help us support our ministry.

Second, our executive director’s annual income is about 20% less than the national average for non-profit executive directors – this is about the same as a McDonalds manager, except with fewer benefits. In exchange for this salary, he typically works about 60-80 hours a week and is separated from his wife and sons in the U.S. for most of the year. His wife also works a separate job full-time to help them provide for their family and future. How our director chooses to spend his money is up to him, but a large portion of it ends up finding its way back to Haiti to care for the people has dedicated his entire life to serving. This is a labor of love for our director, as anyone who has spent time with him can attest.

Finally, we are not in the habit of kicking out guests for no reason. We did ask this reviewer to depart early, because he was taking young men from the community out drinking and using the opportunity to denigrate GVCM. He was spreading unfounded rumors to staff, visitors, and the community, that GVCM was engaged in criminal activity. His beliefs may have been sincere, and made sense in the context of his other conspiratorial beliefs about Christianity and the United States. Regardless of his motives, GVCM works very hard to build trust with the people we serve and we could not continue to host someone who was viciously spreading lies about our organization. Our director made the decision that the reviewer had to leave. That confrontation was conducted in a professional way which we submit that the reviewer has misrepresented in his own interest. We have three corroborating accounts for why we asked this reviewer to leave, which we would share with anyone who has serious concerns.

Ron has no idea what he is talking about. I see how the money is used and it is used to feed the children, educate them, drilling water wells for a community to be self-sufficient, and helping the community around them by giving them food. I have been there a few times the past couple of years.
It was an awesome experience. The radio station Ron talks about is a volunteer ran and spreads the word of god to a community full of despair. Pastor Yves should be praised for his good work and should never be ridiculed by people like Ron that doesn't have any idea what he is talking about.

This 'Charity' does nothing more than take advantage of a desperate situation in order to create positions of power for people who do absolutely nothing to deserve it. These people receive donations meant to assist the people of Haiti and divert them into book stores, radio stations and housing that divide communities and spread sudo science. badly needed resources are squandered on indoctrinating desperate people.

GVCM is a Haitian-led ministry that makes no apologies about the fact that we believe in the teachings of Christ. We empower Haitian pastors to teach Haitian congregations about the value of hard work, faith, and love. We also provide free or low cost medical treatment to no fewer than 20,000 patients and education to 6,000 children each year. We have a free library, but no book stores; we partner with a radio station, but spend less than 1% of our resources on it. Our highest paid staff member could have made the same annual income as a McDonald's manager and done so without having to live in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. I'm sorry that Ron seems to oppose all religious charities; Christian charities have done a lot of good in Haiti, and we are proud to be numbered among them.
