Bible teachers needed for 2013 Ghana Preachers Workshop
More than 500 ministers — from Churches of Christ and a variety of denominations — are expected to attend the 2013 Ghana Preachers Workshop, scheduled for Feb. 1-18.
Dwin Davis Sr., a member of the Sunset Church of Christ in Springfield, Mo., and coordinator of the event, seeks additional ministers and Bible teachers to donate at least a week of their time to help with the ministry training event. For more information, see the event’s website.
Davis first traveled to the West African nation in 2008 on a trip sponsored by the Mesa Church of Christ in Arizona. He works with Ghanaian evangelist Noah Mends. (See a 2010 blog post where we quote Mends.)
According to the website:
(Dwin Davis Sr.) studied with lost souls during the day and with preachers, in his hotel room, at night. Dwin was asked by an African preacher to come teach him and other preachers. In 2010, he taught 25 preachers in the daytime and evangelized villages at night. In 2012, Dwin taught two workshops with 53 attending the first week and 47 attending the second week. The Ghana Preachers Workshop has rapidly grown every year with 500 preachers wanting to attend in February 2013.
For examples of African Christians reaching out to their own continent, please see my recent blog post from Lusaka, Zambia, during the 2012 Africans Claiming Africa for Christ conference.
As Churches of Christ in Africa continue to grow — outpacing those in the U.S. — how can U.S. Christians best support ministry there? What are the continent’s greatest spiritual needs? How can Americans help — and not hurt — the work in Africa?
