In the past 150 years, Sub-Saharan Africa has experienced an amazing growth in Christianity. In Malawi, about 80 percent of the population are Christians. Churches are well attended but most churches are served by leaders and members who have little or no access to Bible training to equip them for helping their churches and communities.
The question is, how do we make training accessible and affordable to many leaders and members? One answer is to train local facilitators who in turn will train members in their own church communities.
