Pastor John’s Story
Adopted as an orphan boy and raised by a Senior Pastor who is now retired, Pastor John began a fellowship in 1990 in a little room with just a few people attending.
So far, 170 fellowships have been planted by this ministry. All of the church planters who have established these fellowships have been trained and equipped through our indigenous partner’s Church Planting Schools.
A school that shares about God has been established with help from our indigenous partner. This school has funded one Church Planting School class containing at least 10 Church Planters each year.
Through the new fellowships planted, a total of 35 schools that share about God have been established with over 12,000 children enrolled.
We thank God for Dr. William Scott, who helped us to construct the school building which today has 42 spacious rooms and a capacity for 1,500 students.
Pastor John. writes “In the beginning there were lots of problems. Classes were held in open air and under trees. We thank God for Dr. William Scott, who helped us to construct the school building which today has 42 spacious rooms and a capacity for 1,500 students. Many in the school have come to know the true light and today are in full-time ministry. Demand for schools in the surrounding villages has greatly increased. We have started 35 primary schools where we have village fellowships. These schools make a positive impact on the village people and also are helping the fellowships to grow fast!”
Dr. Scott dedicated a new fellowship established by this ministry in 1996. It was located in a remote area on the edge of the jungle. It is inhabited by a tribal group known as the M. Dr. Scott had to walk through a river to get there.
In 2006, this fellowship was visited by staff of our indigenous partner who discovered it. It had grown from two families to a fellowship that is overflowing and packed tight with first generation followers. From 10 followers to 600 members and 400 school children in 10 years! These new followers are bursting with energy and enthusiasm.
