Ignite a movement of God’s Word in Cuba


Missions in Cuba

Quick Stats1

  • Language: Spanish
  • Population: 11 million
  • Percentage Evangelical: 8%
  • Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean

Location

Cuba is a country with a special aura due to being closed off to the United States for many decades. While official statistics share a high Christian population (56% according to Operation World), only an estimated 8% are evangelicals.

  • The evangelical movement in Cuba has been described as much wider than it is deep.
  • Challenges to gospel ministry include the prevalence of Catholicism and Santería, a spiritist religion common among those of African descent resembling Haitian voodoo.

Training pastors in biblical exposition is a strategic way to strengthen the Cuban church for biblical ministry.



Overview of Training

Our training in Cuba will consist of two groups.

The first group’s training will be done in conjunction with brothers we have trained in Atibaia, Brazil. We hope their faithful example will encourage our Cuban brothers to not only be transformed by God’s Word but to think in terms of a movement of the Word of God in their country. (Like is happening in Brazil.)

MOCLAM - Moore College Latin AmericaOur second group will work with MOCLAM (Moore College in Latin America) to train ten pastors and church leaders. This group’s advantage is that they are already trainers: they have been trained with Moore and have passed on their training in their networks. Lord willing, this will make passing on the training in biblical exposition second nature and fruitful for the strengthening of pulpit ministries in Cuba.

One Cuban pastor, Julio Cesar, had this to say about the Training National Trainers program:

We have experienced other courses in expository preaching in the past, and most of the time these courses become a monologue, or you could say a conference in expository preaching. The value TNT has is that one learns also from the student. Why? Because the student is also part of the learning and teaching process. It’s a double role, serving as a student and teacher.  TNT is really cool because students can develop thoughts and a sermon based on the principles we learn. This fuels us and also gives us feedback.

At the same time, the student can be reproducing this training in home groups, Sunday school, and other places. TNT has helped us greatly.
