Lead Global Training Center

Establish a missionary training center in Nairobi, Kenya, for African cross-cultural missionaries.
Africa is on the rise! The history of Christian missions, rising birth rates, and the African church’s phenomenal growth put Africa on the course to becoming the largest Christian continent in the world. The African church is zealous and vibrant with a heart for going to the nations, and they are requesting training to become effective, long-term missionaries among unreached peoples globally.

Your gift will establish a missionary training center in Nairobi, Kenya, to train African Christians as international missionaries. New buildings are needed to house missionary candidates and their families, and older buildings must be remodeled to create larger education spaces, a cafeteria, and a kitchen. In addition, IMB missionaries are designing Missionary Task training to equip African Christians to effectively share the gospel while living in a new culture, learning a new language, and planting churches in a new cultural context. Africans can live and serve in many places around the world that are inaccessible to IMB missionaries. Equipping them to make Jesus known among the nations is vital to  spreading the gospel to the last unreached peoples on earth.

Beyond the centralized training center, IMB missionaries and African Baptist leaders will train church congregations across the continent to become missionary-sending churches. Then, as spiritually healthy churches, they will cast the vision to future generations to embrace God’s global mission.

IMB leaders in Sub-Saharan Africa agree that the Lead Global Training Center and the decentralized, church-based trainings “provide the opportunity for us to invest in the next generation of sending missionaries to the ends of the earth.” Give today to catalyze the global spread of the gospel by developing the Lead Global Training Center for African international missionaries!

Location

Sub-Saharan African 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.
