To train and empower indigenous leaders to transform their communities.

We believe a trained leader is not only the HOPE of Africa, but the HOPE of the world. In our commitment to build and empower the indigenous leader education and training is at the core of what we do.

Four Leadership Tracks

Education is the great engine of personal development.

"It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another."

Concepts learned go beyond leadership theory and integrate best practices and practical tools to lead people and manage the procedures, systems and procedures around them.

7 Areas of Focus

Listed below are seven areas and teaching outcomes we believe are fundamental to our call, and essential to the longterm growth and health of the churches we plant:


Our preferred outcome is to train spiritual leaders who are equipped to correctly handle the Word of Truth and are ruthlessly committed to the authority of Scripture.


Our preferred outcome is to clarify the pastoral calling of spiritual leaders to go into all the world and make disciples, not just win converts, and to inspire them with a compelling vision that both shepherd and sheep are at their best when making disciples who make disciples.


Our preferred outcome is to equip spiritual leaders with an understanding that the health of their church and its impact upon the village in which it is planted hinges on the shepherd’s effectiveness as a skillful and wise leader.


Our preferred outcome is to call spiritual leaders to vigilant alertness to theological drift and doctrinal error by equipping them with sound doctrine.


Our preferred outcome is to inspire spiritual leaders through anointed Bible preaching by our teaching team.


Our preferred outcome is to equip spiritual leaders with a skill set for organizational management and strategic planning, and to introduce them to accountability for kingdom productiveness.


Our preferred outcome is to paint the picture of our Divine mission for spiritual leaders, demonstrating how a clear and compelling vision will determine the path, set the pace, marshal the resources, produce the energy and create the accountability necessary to accomplish what God has set before us.
