Malawi Team

We seek to train local believers to take their part in the global fulfilling of the Great Commission so that their local churches will flourish and plant new, healthy Malawian churches.

About Team

About Malawi Team

Almost 80% of Malawians are professing Christians, but sadly, most are nominal in their faith, creating a need to evangelize the church. In the urban centers live other groups without Christ–Middle Easterners, South Asians, East Asians, and South American people group segments who are currently not engaged with the gospel.
The average median age for Malawi is 18 years old, making it one of the youngest nations in the world. Moreover, within the next 15 years, Malawi’s urban population is expected to double. So, by the year 2035, Lilongwe, the capital, will have swelled from a population of 1 million to 2 million.
Our team primarily serves in the central region of Malawi in Lilongwe. The foremost need here is leadership development and healthy church trainings. To see Malawian believers live out their faith, making disciples and starting new healthy churches successfully, we need healthy leaders leading healthy churches. To this end, we have created training courses for the church to help them embody their faith and spread it across the country and to the ends of the earth.
Your partnership with us will support “Healthy Church” training, “Biblical Family” training, and “Missionary Task” (M-Task) training to deepen the discipleship of believers and open their eyes to their part in God’s global mission. We want to help the Malawian Baptist Church see that they are no longer a mission field ready to receive missionaries but can become a major missionary sending force.
In addition to leading these trainings over the next three years, your partnership will enable us to continue casting vision to and discipling the next generation of Baptist leaders at the Baptist Theological Seminary in Malawi. God is at work there! Isaac, a third-year student, is currently taking Intro to Missiology. Recently, Isaac said, “I’ve been thinking about the Great Commission and how we’re all called to take the gospel to the nations. God has brought the nations to Malawi, and so we should take every opportunity to build relationships with people that aren’t like us so that we can reach them with the gospel.” He put this new idea into practice and reached out to a Lebanese shop owner, hoping soon to create a bridge to the gospel. We invite you to join us in this exciting work of developing the Malawi church into a missionary force passionately invested in seeing all nations worshipping around God’s throne at the end of time (Rev. 7:9-10)!

Gifts toward specific efforts show us what you are excited about. Occasionally, we may redeploy gifts as we follow God's leading with urgent opportunities or changing international contexts. Any gifts received beyond the goal go toward a similar project or our team support.

Training for National Missionaries

Effort Image

To reach our vision of a Malawian church making disciples in Malawi and beyond, we must cast vision and equip home missionaries to impact their people and those of different cultures. Help us train missionaries within the local Baptist convention, equipping them to share the gospel and plant churches in cross-cultural settings. We will work with Malawian missionaries to see the lost reached, disciples made, healthy churches planted.
