Engage with Africa
“My name is Nganadekoi Isaiu and I live in the village of Bowaya in the Central African Republic. There is a church in my village, but we have no pastor. One day God spoke to me through a verse in Isaiah. I was praying for someone to come and be the pastor of our church and then I saw where God asked, “Who will go?” and Isaiah answered, “Here I am Lord, send me.” That was when I decided I should go to Bible school. I moved to Bossangoa with my wife Pantella and our two children to study the Bible and become a pastor.
Life is not easy for Bible School students. When we heard about the Timothy Project all of us students were very encouraged. I’m praying for someone who is willing to partner with me to help with my school tuition and the many needs at the school. I know God is able to provide all our needs. Maybe He wants to use you?”
A new school has been created that is designed to offer a higher level of training to our Chadian leaders than that which they have been able to receive to date. The stated purpose of this school is as follows:
"The School of Missiological Studies Chad (SMSC) is a training center which shapes Christian leaders through a biblical worldview in order that they will be able to effectively communicate the gospel in diverse African cultures."
This innovative program is designed to not only give the student a thorough understanding of Scriptures but also to help him reflect more deeply on the way that those Scriptures lead to life transformation and more effective ministry. Download an information card.
Building strategic facilities to train upcoming leaders
The James Gribble Leadership Training Center will be constructed on 10 acres of land approximately 10 miles from the center of Bangui, Central African Republic.
Activities on campus will include the new Doctor of Ministry program, the Seminary, the new School of Evangelism, the new School of Youth Worker Training, and numerous seminars for training lay leaders.
Serving Central African churches through your teaching gifts.
Rapid growth among the churches of the Central African Republic has created a tremendous leadership training opportunity. Currently less than 50% of the 2,400 registered churches are led by trained pastors.
The Aquila Project supplements the training of Seminary and Bible Institute students through intensive courses taught by experienced North American pastors and teachers. Through a strategic partnership between central African church leadership and Encompass World Partners, you could have the opportunity to teach a one-week intensive course designed to impact the next generation of African leaders.
