After Ghanaian Christians were introduced to oral Bible storytelling, many of them said, “We wanted to evangelize, but we just didn’t know how. Now we do.”
This Story Together Bible training focuses on languages spoken in Ghana’s Muslim north. Language teams will develop a catalog of 40 to 60 Bible stories specifically tailored to their language and people group. The stories will relay biblical truths that address their current beliefs. Your gift will cover training for the language teams and recording of the Bible stories in local languages.
After training, each language team is required to use what they have learned within their home community. A built-in expectation in the master plan is that, as training progresses, each person will be training other believers — West Africans training other West Africans. The method has been proven to be reproducible and effective in other West African countries. Learning to train others is part of the continued development of Christian leaders.
Give today to North Ghana Story Together Bible Training to develop strong Christian leadership that will catalyze the work of the gospel for generations!
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.
