Christianity is on the rise in Africa. Praise God for the opportunities He is opening there to share His Word, train pastors, and grow the Kingdom. Over the next several weeks, our Vice President of International Training, Timothy Olonade, will be illuminating the scriptures as he trains pastors and leaders in Nigeria and Malawi. Timothy tells us:
“Wherever we turn in Africa, there is a palpable cry for biblical and theocentric ministry and leadership development tools as well as preaching content development for the growing number of God’s servants. All of these needs call for our attention, in spite of the increasingly severe persecution of the Body of Christ worldwide.”
Please lift Timothy and his training team up in your prayers this week and in the weeks to come. Pray also for those who participate in the trainings, that they might be inspired and strengthened as they answer God’s call to shepherd His children. Even as Christianity is growing in Africa, there is chaos and persecution across much of the continent. Please pray for God’s message of grace and salvation to reach all of the people of Africa.
