Liberia August 2017

Undisclosed Location August 3-12, 2017

We received over two hundred initial inquiries when we agreed to train pastors and church leaders just north of the Monrovia. Our local partners, Center for Leadership Development, have worked to identify one hundred key leaders from those who expressed interest whom we will be training. Church leaders are desperate for training to help them in their ministry and are committed to pass along what they are learning to others. (MDiv required - see below) Teaching: Attributes of God

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

Our first short-term team to Monrovia, Liberia arrived safely late on Friday evening (Aug 4). Our seven-member team will be training 100 pastors and church leaders in Liberia who little to no access to theological education. They are committed to completing three years of training which TLI is providing. Many of them will be traveling a long distance to attend this training including a few from the countries of Guinea and Ivory Coast. 

Yesterday, our team had the opportunity to fellowship with our national partner here in Monrovia, Dyonah Thomas (3rd person on left in photo below), who has been involved in training leaders in West Africa. The organization he started, Center for Leadership Development has invited TLI to partner with them in help provide theological training for the pastors in the area.

On Sunday morning, our team preached at the worship services of 6 different churches in Monrovia. This morning, our team will begin leading the pastors and church leaders through a study of the Attributes of God which is the first of nine courses in the TLI curriculum.  The attendees will be divided up into six classes of about 16-17 students in each. The training will be held at the Grace Life Church facilities, where Dyonah is the pastor.  We are looking forward to the week of teaching, interaction and fellowship with those in each of our classes. Even though everyone in Liberia speaks English, there is still a communication gap; the people understand us and we understanding the people. Praying for us as we teach in this cross-cultural context.

One evening after dinner, our team talked about the nine courses in the TLI curriculum and that the goal of the training to produce pastors who are expositors of the Word. It was a good reminder to us of our goal, desire and prayer as we begin the training this morning.
