The long-time dream of training African nationals to lead African ministries was celebrated with the formal dedication of the James Gribble Leadership Training Center in April 2018, in the capital city of Bangui, Central African Republic. In attendance were government officials including the Prime Minister, leaders from local churches, students and their families, and many other members of the community. More than just classrooms and books, the Center works to shape the whole life of students, their wives, and their children. This results in leaders who are highly effective in local churches throughout central Africa. Your ongoing prayers and financial gifts will help continue this eternally meaningful work.
