There are many exciting things happening at CDL and around Mozambique this month!
- CDL is privileged to have Dr. Jim Howard teaching New Testament Theology and Dr. Fred Sharpe teaching Biblical Leadership & Ethics September 11-22. The Biblical Leadership and Ethics course will help our students and church leaders minister with a Christian worldview.
- Dr. Howard and Dr. Sharpe will also lead a pastors’ conference called, “Creating a Healthy Christian Culture in the Midst of a Secular Culture,” September 17-19.
- September 18-20 Dr. Isaias Uaene, Executive Director of CDL, will be facilitating training on Church Pragmatics—helping leaders enhance their skills on church planning and development. This will be done in partnership with Bellevue Baptist Church and Pioneer Missions Global in mission target areas of the Baptist Convention of Mozambique—Manhiça, Chimoio and Nampula.
Please pray for anointing by the Holy Spirit in all these ministries. Please pray also for partnerships being developed between the Mozambican Baptist Convention and Pioneer Missions Global/Bellevue under the leadership of Dr. Wade & Barbara Akins.
Last week Dr. Richard Hamlet of Memphis, Tennessee, USA, taught several sessions at CDL. Dr. Hamlet, president and CEO of Global Ministries Foundation, trains pastors all over the world.
His focus at CDL was to train local pastors in the practice of expository preaching. With the help of translator Dr. Isaias Uaene, founder and executive director of CDL, Dr. Hamlet instructed over 50 people. This training will allow these pastors to teach the Word more effectively.
Thank you for coming, Dr. Hamlet!
