The Pastoral Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) trains pastors and church leaders in Biblical, theological, leadership, and reconciliation principles and practices while cultivating pastoral skills and encouraging an expansive love of God and others. The program seeks to achieve ALARM’s goal which is to strengthen and empower the African church by equipping the untrained leadership with basic pastoral skill and ministerial tools. Our passion is to enable the African leaders to develop Biblically-based churches that are spiritually vibrant and whose message is culturally relevant, ministering to the whole person and bringing hope and healing to the hurting communities.
This class of 30 PLTI participants in the DR Congo have attended 3 of their trainings for this year in April – July. These participants were taught the Essentials of Ministry, the Bible Survey of the New and Old Testament, and a Synthesis of Christian Theology. As these leaders continue to attend trainings and strengthen their leadership skills, they are equipped to effectively lead their churches and communities.
