Pastors' Training Conference
Eldoret, Kenya, October 26-29, 2011
God enabled me to speak at the African Renewal Pastors'
Training Conference in Eldoret, Kenya in October 2011. Here are some videos and
photos from that trip.
- Interview with Bishop Chriss Barasa Lusweti, Eldoret, Kenya about evangelism and church planting in western Kenya.
- Lessons from Nairobi Pentecostal Church (23 October 2011).
- Photos from the mission trip to Kenya
A major project that has resulted from the conference is the preparation of a two-disc video set of my teachings to the pastors. You can see each of these teachings on YouTube from the following webpage:
Baraka ya Kutoa / The Blessing of Giving. Funzo la Uwanafunzi kuhusu Kutoa / Discipleship Lessons in Tithing and Giving (a series of 7 teachings in Swahili and English). https://www.jesuswalk.com/kutoa/
As I shared with you earlier, our missionaries did a good job teaching Africans to know Jesus, but they didn't do such a good job teaching them to tithe. Perhaps they felt they were too poor to give. But the result is that most pastors in western Kenya don't have any support from their churches -- and may not even be tithing themselves. God put on my heart to prepare a series of teachings for this conference, listed below. The teaching is in both English and Swahili. You can view each of these videos online at https://www.jesuswalk.com/kutoa/
- Too Poor to Give (40:49).
- Stewardship, Ministry, and the Tithe (44:55)
- The Blessings of Tithing (Malachi 3, 43:48)
- The Blessings of Sowing Generously (2 Corinthians 9:6-15, 43:27)
- A Critique of the Prosperity Message (42:18)
- Financial Integrity for Pastors (35:00)
- God is Your Source (4:01)
For those of you who prayed and gave toward this conference, thank you! Please continue to pray that God might put the teachings we brought deep into the hearts of pastors and their churches, that God's work in Africa may increase.
Yours in Christ's service,
