Training of Pastor Osca

Published 04 January 2018

Pastor Osca leads the Nyahaha church with his wife Dorcas and the embryonic church at Mwandalya. Neither of them have received training in the Bible or how to lead a church so when we visited Singida in late 2017 we decided, after discussing the situation with Pastor Deo, to sponsor Osca for a 2 year Bible college course. The college course is 4 semesters each year with each semester being for 10 weeks and is followed by 3 weeks at home. Our expectation is that Osca will be equipped to lead the churches in a more powerful way than before which will lead to a deeper level teaching and pastoral support. We are excited by the growth that we expect to see over the next few years in those two churches.
