Could you use your teaching experience and theological training to train church leaders in Mozambique?
The Sofala Bible Institute offers five courses: Sunday school teacher training, Basic Bible studies, Certificates in Theology (Lower and Upper Secondary) and a Bachelor’s in Theology. Many of the courses are taught by Mozambican professors trained by Sofala, but the Bachelor’s course is still dependent on missionary professors.
Vision and strategy
Sofala’s vision is to train and disciple Mozambican Christian workers for diverse ministries in the church, in order to build up Christ-centred churches committed to God’s mission in the world. It seeks to encourage missionary vision, both in the institute and the churches which it serves, to see them sending and supporting national missionaries to their own people and others. The aim is for Sofala to be a Mozambican evangelical institution of theological education, led by Mozambicans, capable of generating and managing resources with a view to becoming self-supporting.
Ministry and type of work
Sofala needs someone who can be involved in biblical and theological training at the Upper Secondary and Bachelor’s levels, being available to help the other levels and courses should it be necessary. Could you work with Sofala to see the transformation of lives as well as the transfer of abilities, training and equipping Mozambicans to take on roles themselves?
