Church & Pastoral Development
Living Water Community Transformation seeks to transform the community of Akot by developing strong churches that will introduce people to a personal, growing relationship with Jesus Christ. The goal is not to have the churches look and function as the Western church, but to equip the local pastors and church leaders to be able evangelize and disciple their native people in a way that is conducive to their culture. This involves the provision of sound Biblical and doctrinal teaching for the local pastors to give them the foundation they need to lead their churches. The Pastor Training Center on the Akot Christian Ministries Compound utilizes a two-year Bible training curriculum to provide this foundation and it is open to pastors of any denomination. The curriculum was specifically designed for African pastors and is taught by local and visiting Bible teachers.
