PASTORS TRAINED

Formed in 2011, the Pastoral Leadership Institute trains grassroots pastors who have received the call of God, but do not have formal theological training. The three-year course focuses on making disciples of Christ who are transformed holistically. Graduates are given a cow to sustain their families with while they continue in ministry.

THE NEED

  • Grassroots pastors in East Africa are not paid and their families suffer while they work in ministry

  • There is a shortage of pastors in DR Congo and other regions because of the hardships in the calling

  • Grassroots pastors do not have formal theological training due to financial or educational constraints

  • Africa suffers from poor leadership and needs strong disciples of Christ to lead by example

A disciple of Christ, a leader in his community

ANTHANESE’S STORY

PLI TRAINING

  • A three-year program with two training sessions a year

  • Training courses take place in Musanze, Rwanda

  • Pastors and their wives from Burundi, DR Congo, Rwanda, and Kenya attend

  • Educators from the U.S. and Africa teach theology, biblical values, business development, and holistic transformation

“The main problem in the African continent at the church and national level is that of poor leadership. All leaders in our continent have sight, but not many have vision” Dr. Faustin Ntamushobora

HOLISTIC TRANSFORMATION

  • PLI training empowers the learner to think critically, to love both God and others, and to bring change in his or her community

  • Process of holistic transformation takes place through divine revelation, self-reflection, written material, and one another

  • Graduates leave intellectually enlightened and economically empowered through the gift of a cow to provide for their families 

Too often education is equated with knowing something, or being able to do something, and does not form us and transform us into godly people who are salt and light in the world” Dr. Kevin E. Lawson

BACK TO THE BIBLE

  • One-week conference to continue theology training after graduation

  • Exposition of one book of the Bible

  • 100 grassroots pastors from Rwanda, Burundi, and the DR Congo come together to study a chosen book and methods of interpretation

  • They work on how to apply the teaching in their lives, families, and community
