Country Overview:
This country in eastern Africa is home to Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti ecosystem, one of the top natural wonders of the world known for its diverse wildlife. Like many underdeveloped countries, Tanzania needs assistance improving education, infrastructure, and availability of adequate drinking water. Witchcraft is prevalent, sometimes permeating Christian communities and practices. Training pastors in expository preaching will root the Tanzanian church in the Scriptures and feed spiritually hungry people the Word of God.

Training Opportunity:
Since beginning training in Tanzania several years ago, we have trained twenty men who have passed training on to over six hundred pastors and church leaders. Of those twenty, five men of the highest caliber will receive advanced training in Word Work (to sharpen exposition skills) and Program Work (to provide necessary training in administration and strategic planning).

Our goal in training these five “Mentor Trainers” is to empower them to take ownership and leadership of all future TNT training in the country and create a sustainable movement of God’s Word in Tanzania. Several of these five pastors are closely affiliated with Bible schools and are working to integrate the Training National Trainers process into the larger curriculum and educational paradigm.

We estimate these five men will lead six to twelve training groups of 15-20 Tanzanian pastors each and develop more “Mentor Trainer” movement leaders in Tanzania. Investing in these men will build upon the existing groundwork increase the spread of God’s Word among Tanzanian pastors and churches.
