Our mission is to spread the gospel
and break the cycle of poverty
by empowering people to achieve
their God-given potential.
Founded in 2013, ICF Cambodia is the first ICF Movement church in Asia. After the arrival of family Strupler in Siem Reap in August 2013, the church has grown from a handful to over 800 attendees who join us for weekly celebrations. Every weekend, we offer celebrations for kids, teenagers, and adults where more than 200 people have been baptised. We believe the strength of a church is not in its seating, but in its sending capacity.
In 1973 Sophal was born in Cambodia and at just three months old was abandoned by her parents. A Red Cross nurse found Sophal in a basket on the streets of Phnom Penh and a few months later she took the baby to Switzerland to escape the invasion of the Khmer Rouge. There, Sophal found a new home with loving parents
Since the founding of ICF Zurich in Switzerland in 1996, ND had been one of the key people in the leadership team. During this time, he served as a youth pastor for 10 years and then trained church planters for the following 7 years. In 2010, family Strupler visited Cambodia for the first time and were extremely touched by Cambodia’s cruel history and its still visible legacy. After the second visit in 2012, they decided to move to Cambodia and start a new church.
