Adama, also known as Nazret, is a key city in Ethiopia’s Rift Valley on the main rail & road route to the port of Djibouti. It is majority Muslim, but “Pente” (the Ethiopian term for Evangelicals) are boldly planting churches there. Believers in Adama are in danger from the expansion and teaching of both Islam and Prosperity Preaching. Their shepherds need Biblical understanding, hermeneutical wisdom, and skill in expository preaching of the word of God in order to equip the saints to defend themselves from such error and to proclaim the truth to others. We currently train about 60 current or future church leaders: three classes in the Amharic language, one in the Oromo language, all through interpreters.
