Training is the heart and soul of Expand Ministries & Aid Int. We love training pastors so that they can teach sound biblical principles to their members. The sad part is that 85% of pastors in the world have received very little training or no training at all and the majority is of these Pastors is in Asia, Africa and Latin America. A large percentage of the enquiries we received is to help with training.
2 Timothy 2:1-2 (NKJV Strong’s)
You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
Some of the benefits of teaching others:
- They Grow Spiritually
- You equip them to train their members for their ministry and the kingdom of God grows quicker
- The quicker the kingdom of God grows the quicker the return of Jesus
- The word of God brings discipline and help people to look after themselves better
When we realise the need
The first mission trip I took to Kenya was very emotional and shocking to me. There were many churches that had an average of 10-50 members but very little of them had sound doctrine and the focus was rather on the pastor the creator. It was then that God said to me that he had called me to teach and train pastors. I made a very strong and maybe outline of a statement on a video presentation that I have made after the trip and it said:
That the harvest is starting to rot
The Ultimate Goal
Most of the members in Western Churches have more training then most pastors and are better equipped biblically. As a pastor our responsibility and our Goal should be that of Paul that he wrote to the church in Colossians
Colossians 1:28 (NKJV Strong’s)
Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
We are grateful that we not only can provide training for pastors but we provide training in difficult and dangerous places also.
