Next year, we’re excited to announce African Enterprise will be rolling out a new, universal training program for our staff and local evangelists.
Since our founding in 1962, the social landscape has understandably evolved, and with it, the needs of our teams and those they serve. Over our 57 years we’ve consistently adapted our approach to missions, and this latest iteration of training will further equip evangelists to confidently share the Gospel message to diverse communities around the globe.
Bringing a unified approach to missions, the training program will teach from 3 key pillars: preparation, proclamation and preservation. Enabling leaders to set up a mission’s event well both spiritually and logistically, and to walk with new believers from salvation through to their maturity in Christ. That final stage is imperative, as African Enterprise seek to strengthen local churches’ capacity to maintain relationship and facilitate the growth of those impacted by missions.
Trainees will undertake a two day initial intensive before advanced training, graduating with an ‘African Enterprise Advanced Certificate of Evangelism & Missions’. Motivating them to approach the process with excellence, and an appreciation for their work as a professional vocation.
Teams will be briefed in a new reporting structure that brings additional accountability to all projects, enhancing our ability to be the most faithful and effective catalyst for holistic urban evangelism in Africa.
They’ll also be unified in their understanding of God’s heart for the lost though the course, along with studying Apologetics and discipling new Christians.
African Enterprise CEO Ben Campbell says, “This training material consolidates the significant evangelistic experience and partnership between us and many contributing organisations.
“This new training blueprint for the African Enterprise missions process promises a much clearer focus, and opportunity to consistently and effectively reach out to more people throughout Africa in partnership with the church.”
