Prek Ompel Methodist Church

In 2003, AMC embarked on our first missions project by partnering with Prek Ompel Methodist Church (POMC), Located in the village of Prek Ompel in Kandal province, POMC is about 1 ½ hours travel from Phnom Penh. Over the past 13 years, we have been involved in the ministries of the church by providing financial support for the pastors, giving university scholarships to students from the village, and building a new church building in which the congregation currently worships. Mission trips sent over the years have been involved in a variety of ways including digging wells, running computer, English as well as youth camps, and medical outreach.

Methodist Hostel


Students who come from the provinces to study in the universities in Phnom Penh have few options for living accommodations. Unless they are fortunate enough to have relatives with whom they can temporarily board, they must stay in rooms packed with up to 15 students or in temples.  The Methodist Hostel in Phnom Penh was started in 2008 by Dr Seet Ai Mee with the vision of providing a safe Christian environment for youth from the villages to stay in the capital city as they pursue their studies. The hostel provides nurturning support for students coming from Methodist Churches throughout Cambodia, as well as a non-threatening atmosphere for pre-believing students to come and experience the love of God. It began with a rented shop house catering to 20 students and has since grown and moved to its current purchased premises catering to about 50 students. A discipleship programme is run within the hostel inclusive of bible study sessions, pastoral care groups, worship sessions, and annual camps. Mission teams run seminars and training programmes for the hostelites and hostel leaders. May the Lord continue to use this ministry to raise up a generation of His servant leaders in Cambodia.
Hope House (Slum ministry)


Chabar Ompov slum, located near the Monivong Bridge on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, is one of the poorest areas in Phnom Penh. Approximately 200 families live in wooden shanties with primitive sanitation and limited access to clean water. There is a public school nearby; however, most of the slum children work long hours in a fish processing facility where they earn US$1 per day cleaning fish. Many of the parents are drug addicts, alcoholics, gamblers, or sex trade workers. About 1/3 of the families are Vietnamese who lack identity papers required for their children to attend public school.
The vision of Hope House is to improve literacy and provide basic nutrition and healthcare for the children of Chabar Ompov slum in a clean and safe Christian environment. It aims also to relieve spiritual poverty by sharing the good news of Christ and imparting Christian values. Additionally, opportunities for new areas of social outreach will be explored in this community.
