Several years ago, an opportunity arose to train pastors and church leaders in Zomba, Malawi. In the course of conducting Bible conferences, the Passion Center for Pastors (PCP) ministry began to see the need to focus their efforts towards village pastors. With over 70% of Malawians living in the villages, these pastors are strategically positioned. Each of these men have the desire to shepherd God’s flock and to take the gospel to areas that are dominated by witchcraft and the spread of Islam, but they have little to no Biblical training, nor do they have the opportunity to attend a Bible College.
We are persuaded that God has placed this open door before us. We believe that as a greater number of village pastors are trained, we will begin to see the transformation of lives, the weak being cared for, and God’s grace and healing touching this nation. Right now, nearly 300 pastors and leaders are coming to our quarterly Bible conferences and 144 are in the year-round Bible Training program. This ministry has been so powerful that we have had other areas ask us to bring the Passion Center for Pastors Training program to them! Pastor Pilira Chibwana recently said the following, “I think growing by taking the program to other places is not a question. I think we need to pray and strategize how to grow because God has already commanded us to go to all the world.”
Would you please join us in asking God how and where we should go next? If you are able, please consider making a year-end gift so that we can walk through this open door. Your prayers, support and gifts are deeply appreciated! Thank you and may God bless you.
