Discipler of Pastors and Pastor Wives

Senegal is 95% Muslim and at most .1% Evangelical Christian. While the Wolof are the dominant people group and there are only about 100 known believers among them, WorldVenture is related to some 27 churches primarily among the Serere People. Help us build these churches through mentoring and discipling of the pastors and wives of these churches. Give foundational teaching in small groups. Disciple couple to couple. Your discipleship will make better leaders. Come join us. Help us train, disciple and mentor leaders for the church in Senegal.

Learn Serere and/or Wolof and some French. Use your love for the Bible to mentor and teach foundational truths of God’s Word. Work with each pastor couple in wrestling with truths through application and the implications of the truth in their personal life including family life and shepherding the flock (mentor). Train them how to study and learn from the Bible so they can demonstrate Christ to their congregations, children and neighbors.
