Light of Hope Missions Bible Training will help you prepare for more effective service in pulpit ministry or as a layperson committed to being a more effective asset to your pastor and the local body of believers. Apart from Bible Training, we seeks to raise up indigenous missionaries through this intensive 3 years ministry training by starting Bible Training Centers in our villages across Kenya and in Africa by using BTCP Curriculum. This training includes pastoral ministry, in depth bible study, evangelism, and apologetics. In addition to spiritual training and discipleship, we intend to teach our students skills in small scale farming/starting a small business so that they will be able to support themselves once the ministry training is done. The goal of our School of ministry is to equip and send ministers and missionaries into the remote, impoverished villages in Kenya and Africa as a community.Once the students are through with classes they will begin ministering to remote communities through evangelism, Bible studies, prison ministry, children’s ministry, and adult literacy trainings (so that believers can learn how to read the Bible).
