Africans Teaching Africans Bible Training 2Tim 2:2 “and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men Currently there are many thousands of men and women in Africa who are serving as pastors with little or no Bible training. These sincere pastors need training to be able to teach and preach faithfully from the Bible. We recognize that these pastors will continue to serve even if they are never trained. The purpose of Africans Teaching Africans is to train these pastors where they live, regardless of any money or education they lack. ATA is mostly concerned with teaching pastors and church leaders who are unqualified and unable to go to Bible College. Additionally, there is a great hunger all over Africa for learning the Bible. Africans Teaching Africans is not just for pastors; it is also for any person desiring to learn God’s Word. It is currently being taught to many members of churches, in prisons, and in Scripture Unions in secondary schools. Africans Teaching Africans is a non-denominational effort. We are Christians of all denominations working together for God’s glory. There are many graduates from various Bible schools scattered throughout Africa. Our plan is to help these graduates enthusiastically enlarge their ministries by sharing their Bible knowledge with other Christians. This will benefit God’s kingdom by seeing these untrained pastors cease to teach their erroneous opinions and begin teaching the truths of the Bible. We provide teaching notes to help teachers organize their classes. We have no money to pay our teachers. Their payment will come from God. The ministry doesn’t need money because we suggest that teachers only teach part time and continue to do their regular work. Also they teach only part of a day so people don’t have to be fed; teachers should teach where they live so that there is no need for transportation money. Take your current ministry and expand it. Continue your current ministry and teach pastors as a part time ministry. Our goal is to replace ignorant teaching with Bible teaching. Think of the implications for the kingdom. You can be a part of this exciting vision. We are not starting Bible colleges; we are starting teaching points all over Africa. Completion of the program qualifies those formally enrolled to receive a certificate. The certificate will be issued when a person can successfully prepare and deliver a Bible sermon. Certificates of attendance are awarded to those who are not pastors who complete studying the curriculum. It is important that all preachers and Bible teachers only teach what is in the Bible. It is equally important that Christians only believe what the Bible says about God and that they quit believing “what the man of God” says about God unless the “man of God” can support his words from the Bible.
