The pastor training

The pastor training

The Pastor Training is an online course for pastors who have had little or no opportunity to receive a formal theological education. The internet enables pastors like you to take this course in your own time, and without having to leave your community to travel elsewhere to receive education.

 

Training pastors remains a major challenge for the global church, but the internet creates possibilities that didn’t exist before. Even in parts of the world where training possibilities simply didn’t exist in the past, the internet is now a major facilitator.

In June 2020, GlobalRize entered into a partnership with NET Foundation. This organization developed training material suitable for students who very often only completed primary school. Together with NET Foundation, GlobalRize developed the Pastor Training.

NET Foundation - GlobalRize
  • The number of untrained pastors in the world is estimated to be between 1 and 4 million. GlobalRize does not consider internet training to be ideal, but recognizes that it is a way to reduce the number of pastors who have had no training at all, by offering them an education.
  • Many pastors in Africa do not have access to a formal Biblical education, but they often do have a cell phone. This is why the course format is suitable for use on cell phones, as well.

Seven course modules on essential topics

The course consists of seven modules. Each module covers a different topic.

Module 1
God’s way of salvation

The first module covers salvation and repentance, focusing on how sinners are saved, and reconciled with God.

Module 2
God’s call to ministry

The second module covers how God calls sinners and the ministry God gives them.

Module 3
Passion for preaching

The focus of this practical module is on preaching. Students learn how to prepare sermons and learn the fundamentals of preaching. Mentors who are pastors themselves are available for extensive support.

Module 4 Survey of the New Testament

The fourth module covers the New Testament and its background. Why is it important to read the New Testament and what can we learn from it?

Module 5 Teaching in God’s way

This module considers the commandment to teach people about God’s way. In the Bible, we find various instructions to teach people to love and obey God. The practical implementation of these is addressed in this module.

Module 6 Survey of the Old Testament

The Old Testament is as important as the New Testament. This module deals with the content of the Old Testament and the importance of studying it.

Module 7 Living for Christ

The seventh and final module of the Pastor Training takes students through the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. Christians are commanded to follow our Lord Jesus Christ and make disciples of all nations.

Preparation

Before you begin with the Pastor Training, we ask that you complete our (free and mentored) Bible basics course.
This informative course will introduce you to our course format and will help us to assess your needs with regard to mentoring.

Salvation is more than being born again. It is a lifelong journey that requires the grace of God and can never be earned.

Student

I like how patient my mentor was throughout this course. He took his time to explain things to me and make them understandable. I appreciate him for all the effort he has made to work with me.

Practical

Practical information

All lessons have a similar structure. The student starts the lesson by reading a text and then watches videos related to the topic. As soon as the theory has been studied, the student is invited to answer multiple-choice and open questions. On the basis of the answers provided, a personal conversation between the student and their pastor/mentor follows. The pastor/mentor may ask additional questions.

Joseph's story

One of our students who became a mentor himself, is Joseph Oroma from Uganda. He has been a pastor in a local congregation since 2011. In 2021, he discovered the Pastor Training and having completed it, was eager to share his acquired knowledge and experience with fellow pastors who, like him, were unable to study at a physical college.
Being available online for his students can be a challenge, due to a poor internet connection or because he has to devote time to his own congregation.
When over the summer, for instance, the area where he lives was severely affected by drought, he had to do a lot of pastoral and diaconal work and sometimes couldn’t be online for weeks.

Joseph's testimony

“I received Jesus Christ in 2004 around November, when I had just returned from the war. As a child, I was kidnapped by a rebel army, which is how I became involved in this war. I was able go to church consistently because others were going, but it was only when I came into contact with the Holy Spirit that the reality of being a Christian became apparent to me.
I flourished in church and was very involved with serving God. By the grace of God, I was able to plant local churches in different villages. Around 2011, God gave me a vision to start a Gospel ministry, “MOUNT ZION GLORIOUS INTERNATIONAL GOSPEL MINISTRY”.
I kept asking for God’s will in this until the vision was born in 2021. Although this development is still relatively fresh, we are really seeing great favour from God in this ministry and so far, we have already been able to establish the church in at least two different districts.
We are praying as we strive to bring the ministry to the Islamic world because we hear God saying that we need to move in that direction.

I welcome the strategies and vision to reach everyone for Christ. The nature of GlobalRize’s work makes it possible for me to serve God with them even while working at a local church. I really like this because it also helps me to gain more experience, especially when I meet pastors from different cultures and backgrounds online, as well.”
