Ghana - June 2017 with Community Life Church

Undisclosed Location June 15-25, 2017

We are training local church planters in a Christian-minority part of Ghana. The majority of the population follow the traditional religion, while Islam is growing fast. Most of the new churches in the area over the last two years have been planted by our students. Due to demand, in January 2016 we added a second cohort of around thirty students. We are partnering with Community Life Church to train pastors in Ghana. Classes: Genesis Galatians

Follow along as teachers in the field offer their experiences as they share theological training with local church leaders.

Jun  23rd,  2017Ghana Trip Recap

Sorry for the lack of updates this week.  We have had a combination of long days and spotty internet.  We taught two cohorts totaling around 80 students.  The newer students studied Genesis.  We are looking forward to seeing their growth as they continue their studies.  The older students studied Galatians.  It was a cultural struggle for them as their culture is used to viewing their relationships with God through the prism of obligations and earning God's favor.  Interestingly, the students struggled with the transition from preaching narratives to preaching letters.  Their churches almost exclusively preach narratives, so they struggled with preaching letters.
