The week after Easter was Evangel School training for church planters in Tanzania. Bishop Charles Sekelwa and the leaders of the CEC denomination gathered 110 church planters for a week of training.
After a week of preparation, training and prayer they were commissioned and sent out. Some will go as far as 500 miles from Mwanza in unreached areas of the country. Bibles were printed and each church planter had 20 to take with them for their ministry assignment.
One year earlier 25 church planters were trained and within three months 15 churches had been planted. The TUMI seminary of Tanzania is then training the pastors and leaders who will follow to lead these planted churches.
Bishop Sekelwa wrote "Our commissioning time yesterday was wonderful beyond expectation. People attended by hundreds to witness as the 110 church planters were commissioned. I invited several Bishops and Pastors just to be there and witness what the Lord's doing thru His chosen weak vessels, and we are already talking about having another huge training come next year 2021 if God wills it."
Please pray for these commissioned Church Planters and for Bishop Sekelwa and his team and they continue to train church planters and pastors for the churches that are planted. We want to see a healthy church planted in every community of poverty, and Bishop's work is making a huge difference in Tanzania and beyond!
