Why Africa?

Do you have a heart to reach
the people of Africa?

Greg and Kim Hart live in Mozambique with their children Gabi aged 6 and Thomas aged 4. In partnership with ACCWM we are committed to spend 10 years helping to bring the gospel to people of Africa who need to hear the truth of Jesus.

Harts for Africa train pastors in rural Africa. We see the need to disciple church leaders in Africa. We are training a group of people in a bible college course and discipleship programme. These trainees then help us to run bible college courses in various rural locations. At these training sessions up to 20 pastors and church leaders will take part in a bible college course. These leaders are from various church groups. They travel to one church to receive the teaching and in turn are encouraged to take it back to their churches and teach all the members of the church.

Why a rural location? Because in Africa Christianity is a “mile wide and an inch deep”, rural churches are mostly led by pastors with no Bible training because they don’t have access to it. Harts for Africa takes the training to them. When a pastor is unable to understand the word of God a church full of false doctrine is formed. This false doctrine causes people to misunderstand the nature of God and allows people to include traditional African religion into the culture of the church. We believe God will transform these churches once the leaders understand the biblical truth and are taught how to test tradition against the word of God.

Is this training effective? Yes! We train pastors leading churches and encourage them to plant new churches. The pastors involved in the ‘train the trainers’ program, have planted over twenty churches between them, but are desperate to receive Bible training. God is testifying to His word with signs and wonders. The sick are healed and the cursed are set free.

We use the Church Planting Institute training material developed by
Ps Gerald Rowlands which has been used to plant thousands of churches worldwide.
