Shepherds Bible Institute, Kenya
Launched in 2013, Shepherds Bible Institute provides biblical, theological, and practical education for Kenyan pastors who do not have the opportunity to receive accessible, affordable training. Using the Bible Training Centre for Pastors and Church Leaders (BTCP, BTCL) ten-course curriculum, we graduated our first class of 19 pastors in December 2017 (pictured above). These graduates are now equipped to teach, lead, and serve their congregations more effectively using the knowledge and skills they have received.
By providing small loans, training, and resources for needy widows, we are helping them rediscover their personal dignity and self-worth by becoming productive members of society. We have sponsored sewing classes that enable women to learn a trade and either start their own businesses or obtain good jobs as professional seamstresses. In this way we help not only individual families, but communities as well by lessening the financial burden on local and federal government agencies to care for the most vulnerable in society.
Our second class at Shepherds Bible Institute, consisting of 17 men and five women, commenced in June 2018 with an anticipated graduation date of December 2020.
In order to better serve our students, we are seeking financial support to construct a dormitory that will allow them to live on-site while classes are in session. Our long-term goal is to become an accredited training institution offering degree programs in addition to the current certificate program.
There is a large orphan population in Kenya. Through financial gifts from our supporters, we seek to care for those in need by providing food, clothing, and medical and educational services. Our long-term goal is to construct and staff an orphanage to provide for the physical, spiritual, educational, and vocational needs of those children most in need and at risk in western Kenya. Currently, we provide scholarship funds for 13 orphans to assist with school fees, food and other daily necessities, and medical expenses.
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
