Training Church Planters
Jesus said that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. A great need in India today is to have trained men and women who are able to present the gospel in hundreds of thousands of villages.
Zion Gospel ministries has established one Training Centre to train men and women for that purpose. Each year approximately 25 trainees graduate from these centers. Every state in India has a distinct, different language and within each state many other languages exist. Therefore, Training Centers in different states are needed to train local people who understand the situation and culture in which they will work. Churches in the west are making it possible for such training bases to exist through partnership. For about 49.000 p rupees per month 25 men and women can receive training. That is $US1.000, a month for one. Year What a tremendous investment! Zion Gospel Ministries has now trained 50 graduates, and 30 churches have been planted. We invite Christian churches and businesses to help and establish the finance for further Training Bases and so provide desperately for the needed workers
The International Curriculum Bible Course is a 180 hour teaching program specially developed for third world countries. It now has forty courses operating among the Zion Gospel churches in India, bringing the world’s best bible teachers to the remotest places of India. Several of our leaders have stated that this has been the best gift to the Indian churches. A training system can be set up for as little as $US200, which helps to equip and educate lay people in established churches. This must be one of the best investments anyone can make in the kingdom of God.
