A Message From Our President
Dr. Donnie Brake
In 2005, we initiated the Boma Project as a Christ-centered endeavor to bring both spiritual and physical support to the Murle tribal community in Boma, South Sudan. We first began by building a Christian school to provide education for children grades K-8 and continued into community development.
All our efforts were grounded by a desire to serve the Lord and to share him with others. As a result, God has blessed us with many additional opportunities that I hope you see throughout this website. May God bless you as you view His work in Africa.

Make A Difference
A group of Sudanese evangelical church leaders met in March of 2004 to formulate a plan to begin the process of restoring the lives of their people. After more than 2 decades of devastating war, these leaders believed that Christ and His Church held the only hope for a New Sudan.
Later in that year, SEA Partners was formed to promote and implement five initiatives: education, food security, clean water, community health and evangelism. As a US non-profit 501(c)3 corporation we began operating in South Sudan since 2005.
