Since 1992, Pamoja has been involved in leadership development, through seminar, church, and Bible school involvement, and also through our media products and ministry partnerships. Through our partnership with World MAP, Pamoja has been able to deploy over 50,000 copies of The Shepherd’s Staff (Fimbo Ya Mchungaji in Swahili) to Church leaders across all denominations. Similarly, though our partnership with Good Shepherd Ministries, we have been able to train thousands of church leaders with the International Curriculum.
But we need to do more. The need for leadership training and development increases daily as the Church in the region grows. New pastors are daily pushed out into their communities to lead in spiritual, physical, and social development, and most are woefully inadequately resourced. We are increasing our involvement, from teaching missions with the Global Pathway material developed by Go To Nations, to training leaders in their communities with the Calvary Bible training materials, and we are expanding our reach to new places from the refugee camps in the North of Kenya to the South coast of Tanzania to the jungles of Eastern Congo, we are pushing on to see the Church equipped.
