Pastor Training Course
Equipping a new generation of pastors
Africa’s greatest need is not only for more Christians, but particularly for more disciples. While people come to the Lord across the continent in the thousands each day, the church has often been described as “a mile wide but an inch deep”. This is because the growth of the church has outpaced the capacity to train church leadership. As a result, much false teaching, including the ‘prosperity’ gospel, has become a major concern across the continent.
African Enterprise is committed to helping train godly leadership, equipping church ministers to be faithful to the Gospel, and has been doing this for many years.
Opportunities for biblical training are too few. Many Christian leaders cannot afford the time or money to get full time theological training. There is an absence of and a need for high quality, short term and low cost theological training.
African Enterprise’s Pastor Training Course is developed from Moore College material in order to equip men and women with a clear biblical theology which they can then put to use in their local context. Whether through short term intensive classes, small groups, or online courses, Christian leaders are given opportunities that in turn build up the local church.
Through PTC, African Enterprise can work toward achieving our mission:
To evangelise the cities of Africa through Word and Deed in partnership with the Church.
Each year, pastors are being trained throughout African through PTC. Through your support in prayer and finance, you are equipping many more to teach of the saving power of Jesus.
GEORGE WHITEFIELD COLLEGE (GWC)
George Whitefield College (GWC) is an accredited theological college based in Cape Town, South Africa, with a mission to shape minds via a classical theological education, nurture hearts devoted to service and train voices to effectively communicate the word of Christ.
Their vision is “That Africa be filled with preachers and teachers who deeply love the Lord Jesus and who have a profound understanding of Scripture, in order that Africa may increase its share in the Kingdom of God.”
The church in Africa is growing and they need trained teachers of God’s Word. Teachers who are capable of understanding, preaching and teaching the Gospel. George Whitefield College exists to provide high quality tertiary level education and training for Christian life and ministry.
To this end, the GWC program aims to deepen student understanding of the message of the Bible as a whole, to develop their capacity to relate to the many complex situations of modern life, and to minister the biblical message to a needy world. This is accomplished by educating people in the principles of Christian knowledge and related fields and by training people for Christian life and ministry with an emphasis on teaching the Word of God.
GWC offers engaging programs in theology, the core subjects being doctrine, biblical languages, church history and biblical theology. One of the distinctive features of GWC is that students live in a diverse community of 15 African nationalities.
