2018 Combined Kabwe & Rufunsa School of Ministry Session
This December we will once again hold a combined 1-week Pastors Training Institute (PTI) session of the Kabwe and Rufunsa Schools of ministry. We have secured the OM Zambia Kabwe Ministry Campus! We expect to accommodate approximately 100 rural Zambian pastors and a 15 member teaching / ministry staff.
Our December 2018 PTI school session will feature daily modules on Biblical Theology, Pastoral Practices (sacerdotal duties), and Pastoral Ethics. We will also introduce a new text book into our New Testament curriculum titled Introducing the New Testament: A Historical, Literary, and Theological Survey - 1st Edition by Mark Allan Powell. Please stand with us in prayer as we are believing God that each rural pastor will receive a copy of this comprehensive book.
Our First School!
We are excited to report the Pastors Training Institute (PTI) of Pastors Hope Ministries under the local leadership of Bishop John M. Ngandu, Senior Pastor-Grace Exploits Center, established the Rufunsa School of Ministry last December on the campus of the Nyamphande Orphanage Community and Rural Health Centre school. The Rufunsa District is located in a rural region of Zambia near the border of Mozambique. We are grateful for the benevolence of Bishop John H. Mambo, Founding President-Nyamphande Orphanage, who graciously granted us the privilege to utilize the boarding school's dormitories, class rooms, and dining facilities at NO COST!
Our Second School!
In December 2015 we convened our second School of Ministry at the OM-Zambia compound in the Central Province of Zambia near Kabwe. We trained over 60 Pastors from various rural regions of the Central Province.
Our Rufunsa / Kabwe Combined School Session
In December 2016 we convened the Kabwe and Rufunsa Schools of Ministry for a combined school session. The USA pastoral team taught for 5 days on the ministry of worship, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, The Gospel of John, The Epistle of Hebrews, The Books of James and Philemon. Each rural Zambian pastor and their bishops received personal copies of the Jack Hayford Bible Handbook (hard back), and a resource binder of daily devotions, biblical insights and exhortations, handpicked and compiled by the USA pastoral team. The Lord moved in a mighty way as His Spirit inhabited our lectures, exhortations, admonishments, praise and worship throughout each day of our school session. We concluded the final day of our school session with our customary certificate conferment and a Worship Communion Service.
Zambian Land Grant Offer Update
As part of our pastoral team’s December 2016 in country school session, we formally visited 'walked, blessed and consecrated' the 30 equivalent acres offered to Pastors Hope Ministries for our permanent campus site. Our goal in 2017 is to initiate our ground breaking with a utility infrastructure and structural foundation project once the land survey and subsequent architectural drawings are completed. We anticipate a 2-3 year build out time table for the permanent campus contingent upon our fundraising activities.
