The Didache Institute has officially commenced on the ground in Kenya.
Sixteen pastors have committed to a deep discipleship and training process that will last 18 months. Last week the group of pastors completed their first 35 hours of in-class instruction, and they are now working on projects associated with the courses.
The two courses taught were:
What is the Gospel?
The Work of the Pastor
We will be on the ground with them again in February for the second module.
In addition to the training in Murang'a, I (Ryan) spent time in Kitale and Mombasa to train pastors and explore future partnerships.
What does the future hold?
- Continued training in Murang'a (4 trainings in 2017).
- Initiation of Didache Institutes in El Tambo and Shushfindi Ecuador (12 weeks on the ground in 2017).
- Exploratory engagement in Vietnam (Feb 2017).
- Work with partners in South Africa (Feb 2017).
- Continuation of Didache Institute Online (13 students from 5 countries).
