Pastors Training Institute
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. – John 1:1-3 (NASB)
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Scripture reveals that the world was created by the Word of God. Relative to the world we live in, Smith Wigglesworth once stated that 'there is no establishment outside God's Word. If you build on anything else but the Word of God-on imaginations, sentimentality, or feelings-it will mean nothing without the foundation; and the foundation will have to be in the Word of God.'
As such, The Pastors Training Institute is undergirded by and established on the spoken Word of God.
If you are actively pastoring a church and you would like to discuss your interest in teaching a module, please contact us to express your interest. Pastor Mike will get in touch you to talk over your interest.
Our first 1-week class session convened during December 2014 at the Nyampande Boys and Girls Boarding School in the Rufunsa District of Zambia near the border of Mozambique. We trained 54 Pastors from various rural sections of the Rufunsa District.
Our second 1-week class session convened during December 2015 at the OM-Zambia compound in the Central Province of Zambia near Kabwe. We trained 60 Pastors from various rural regions of the Central Province.
Each 1-week training session was taught by U.S. Pastors who were led to lecture on 1 of their favorite NT or OT books of the bible. These lectures included instruction on how to build sermons from the coursework materials. Pastor Cevie also conducted 3-day module on the need for pastoral Moral Integrity during the Kabwe session.
During our third 1-week class session December 2106, we reconvened both the Kabwe and Rufunsa Schools together in Kabwe for a special continuing educational 1-week session. We hosted over 114 returning rural pastors for this gathering!
In December 2015 we were informed of the availability of land near Kabwe, suitable for the permanent campus of our Pastors Training Institute. Kabwe is Zambia's second largest city. We are planning to break ground sometime in the later part of 2016. We have launched a capital campaign to fund the initial phase of the infrastructure build-out. We will provide future updates relative to the campus construction plans/budget and capital campaign progress.
