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.
Doing the Ministry of the Word
Course 9 applies the skills and knowledge gleaned from Courses 1–8 to diverse areas of Christian activity. While Courses 3–8 primarily focused on preaching and teaching, Course 9 extends the skills to many realms of Word-ministry (e.g., discipleship, Bible study, counseling, personal devotions, evangelism, apologetics).
