28 Leaders Start Training in Ghana
Earlier this year a proposal was developed for training more leaders in the West-African country of Ghana. After some initial planning and conversations, Bob Bagley, Global Partners (GP) Africa Area Director; Felix Kinful Baafi, Wesleyan Church of Ghana National Superintendent; and Dennis Jackson, GP Executive Director, were all able to collaborate and eventually develop a formal proposal for the support of 28 ministerial students who will receive training through three different pathways this fall.
With details such as expenses for travel to classes, professors’ compensation, meals, and reading materials – some of the costs for these 28 students have been covered by the Amplified Leaders initiative. Starting this fall, nine students will work towards licensing, 10 towards commissioning, and five towards ordination. Would you pray for these students as they start their two-year–journeys of preparation?
The remaining four students – one going to a Bible school and three to a four-year university – will also use their training to serve as pastors and other leadership roles in the church. The hope is for these four to also be future trainers of more pastors and leaders. As this new group of leaders is being raised up in The Wesleyan Church of Ghana, we thank God for a new season of sustainability in local leadership. “Amplified Leaders is helping The Wesleyan Church of Ghana to not only train pastors but to strengthen the national church leadership structure as they continue to multiply,” said Mike Morgan, GP Director of Executive Initiatives.
This is just one great example of what partnerships within the Amplified Leaders program look like. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We’d love to have a conversation about how you can play a role in amplifying sustainability in the global church by supporting a global pastor!
