Training Bible School - 2017 Update
Following a meeting with the Regulatory Committee here are some
recommendations for ATBS
THE IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING VILLAGE PASTORS:
“With so many people throughout Africa coming to Christ,
there is a growing need for sound theological training. To help
meet this need, the ATBS opened the doors of the African Pastors
who can’t afford to go to any other Bible School. Our trainings
are easily accessible from villages of Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia
and some villages of Congo and now Burundi.” Apostle
OUR HISTORY - EDUCATION:
Though still under development, the ATBS was opened with the first
6 Tanzanian students in January 2011. Now we are reaching 400 pastors
in the countries mentioned above.
WHO IS FUNDING THIS PROJECT?
All accepted students attend the training free of charge, but are
required to contribute their farm produce. United Caribbean Trust,
a Barbadian registered charity, under the leadership of Jenny Tryhane
has been playing a big role in the support of these pastors. Assisting
us to purchase Hope Farm enabling us to feed many of the Pastors
who are unable to contribute. To God be the glory.
WHAT IMPACT DO YOU THINK ATBS WILL BRING?
The ATBS has the potential to change lives, not only of the thousands
of students who will be trained, but of their future families and
the tens of thousands they will reach as they graduate and spread
to regions across Africa.
EDUCATION LEVELS OF YOUR STAFF:
- BISHOP MWALYEGO PHD THEOLOGY
- APOSTLE DAVID AKONDOWE –DEGREE (NOW DOING MY MASTERS)
- JENNY NJEZA (DEGREE)
- STELAH AKONDOWE (DIPLOMA)
We have been recommended for what we are doing because they have
proved that what we do really does reach the people who really need
THINGS THEY WANT US TO CORRECT:
ATBS is required to hire a full time secretary by August so that
we have someone who will be a full time worker to communicate with
all these Pastors in case they need our help from these centers.
She will also spearhead the Translation Program not only for the
Follow Me 48 week children’s curriculum into French, Swahili
and Chichawi but also the Stonecroft Bible Studies and the International
House of Prayer director – Mike Bickles’ training notes
for Pastors in Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi and DR Congo.
OFFICE FOR ATBS:
They said an institution like ATBS which reaches 400 pastor plus,
must have its own office to administrate its things where Pastors
can visit anytime they want and this secretary must be in that office
as well. Since HOPE FOR AFRICA are building their own office we
think we may turn this to be ATBS office, because the price per
month is US $150 per month and the cost to employ a Secretary in
US $300 per month.
ATBS needs US $450 per month to cover administrative costs.
