From: Volume 13, Issue 2: Fall 2016, Educational Ministry and Missions Pages 340-360


Christian Education in an African Context” describes practical lessons learned in the development of a discipleship team of Malawian pastors who travel to churches throughout Malawi, discipling members and training teachers and elders. Distinctions between Western and African cultures and perspectives are emphasized. Problems the team faced, and their solutions to those problems, are explained by way of true stories and biblical principles. “What I have written here is my attempt to share some of the lessons that we learned along the way during our continuous pursuit to advance Christian education and discipleship among believers in Malawi.
