Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Rural pastors have little access to theological or Biblical training, the health and wealth gospel is prevalent, and Islam is expanding country-wide. Yet there is a solid core of Pastors and leaders who want to preach and teach well. They are eager for training. Our current cohort of trainees started in August 2022 and consists of 60 Pastors and Evangelists, as well as Womens and Youth Ministry Leaders. Many travel a day or more by bus or motorcycle taxi to attend.

Course 2 - Knowing the Bible's Story
Course 2 explores the general flow of Christ-centered redemptive history from Genesis to Revelation. Major themes that appear throughout—each including aspects of continuity and discontinuity—are God’s kingdom, covenants, people, kingship, priesthood, prophetic ministry, and mission. Each theme is embedded within Scripture’s testimony to the fundamental storyline of God’s plan to reconcile the world to himself under Christ’s kingship for his glory. The point of the whole course is to equip the trainees to answer the hermeneutical Question 2: How does it fit in the Bible? The issue of the Bible’s whole story is hermeneutically potent and foundational to handling individual texts and passages rightly.
