Your gift will enable the IMB team in the Congo Basin to bring oral Bible story training to Christian leaders to create dynamic faith, evangelism, and discipleship among the remaining sixty-nine Unengaged Unreached People Groups (UUPGS) and the under-engaged peoples scattered across the Congo Basin. Sharing Christ using a story approach has enabled oral peoples to understand salvation and truths of the Bible that they had never before grasped. The oral methodology is a reproducible, reproductive, accountable discipleship method that the hearers are able to share with others using the common oral methods they use in their culture.
Faith comes by hearing, but if the people are not being presented the truths of Christ in a learning style they comprehend, they are listening, but not hearing. Help Christians in the DRC understand God’s Word and be able to teach it to others by supporting
Discipleship Training for Oral Peoples.
From the jagged Atlas Mountains to the vast Sahara Desert and the wildlife of the Serengeti, Africa is unrivaled for natural beauty and the hospitality of her people. Most Sub-Saharan Africans live hand-to-mouth, surviving on what they can harvest and herd, but regardless of status or wealth, most Africans share a common bond in community, family, and tribe.
Home to 2,500 ethnic groups, the region once characterized by sweeping poverty is redefining itself with bustling economies and technological enterprise. Eleven of the twenty-five fastest-growing global cities are in Sub-Saharan Africa. Whether urban-or-village dwellers, though, many Africans still try to manipulate spiritual powers through charms, sacrifices, and divination. The hope of the gospel is desperately needed.
African believers are catching a vision for sharing their faith. Sub-Saharan Africa is poised to become a tremendous missionary-sending force. Ask God to fan the flames of evangelism and cover Africa with his glory.
