Bible and Technical Training Institute of Lichinga
22 April 2016
Our goal is to establish a Bible institute in Lichinga, Mozambique which will be in conjunction with a technical school. The vision is to provide vital Biblical training to pastors and lay leaders in the church while also giving them livelihood skills in order to support their families as they minister. There are no other Bible schools in the Niassa province. We aim to gather students from the province and train them to love God and to disciple others and to reach out to the many least reached Muslim people in the northern part of Mozambique.
Lichinga is surrounded by the Yao people group, which are being evangelized at present. SIM is involved with church planting in this people group which still has many people who do not know Christ. This project will also serve these churches in cross-cultural ministry engagement and equipping, to enable local people to participate in God's ministry.
We believe this Bible institute will help to establish a viable church in the Niassa province, one that is mature and self-multiplying.
