CBMC West Africa Training

Ogun State, Nigeria – May 5-8, 2016  The training took place at the Youth Place, Redemption Camp with the Theme: “Raising and Developing Marketplace Ambassadors.” On 19th October 2015, CBMC Nigeria was legally registered. The team then planned to start establishing other CBMC Teams. Togo, Cameroon, Ghana and Ivory Coast wanted to start CBMC Teams as well.

The objectives of the training were:

  1. To raiseMarketplace Ambassadors in West Africa
  2. To train the trainers
  3. To ensure all CBMC countries in Africa follow the ends of CBMC.
  4. To develop CBMC West Africa regional leadership to manage the region’s training needs.

Alex Chisanga, Zambia and Masimba Chimwara, Zimbabwe led the training. After review of the CBMC Mission, Vision, Values and Ends, the group was challenged to look at their business and work place as a mission field. Alex urged the participants to make the gospel their lifestyle, so others could see Christ through them.

The materials and tools reviewed included:
1. CONNECT 3: The purpose of connecting with God, one another and the cause of the Gospel.

2. The key roles of a LEADER (Servant, Shepherd, Equipper and Overseer).

3. BUILDING SPIRITUAL REPRODUCERS covering the following areas:
What Is Disciple-making? Why Disciple? The Goal of Disciple-making. How to Disciple. The Cost of Disciple-making. Who Is a “Paul?” Who Do You Disciple?

Day two started with the first session focusing on Outreach, Follow-up and Visitation. The participants were encouraged that hearing the Gospel is not enough, understanding the Gospel is required.

In evangelism and discipleship, the participants were encouraged to remember:

  • Fear is the opposite of faith and without faith it’s impossible to please God(Hebr.11:6),
  • God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline (2 Tim.1:7).
  • We can do nothing apart from Jesus (John. 15:5).
  • Our weakness is no excuse, it’s actually our strong point (2 Cor.12:9,10).

The West African CBMC Team was then formed and was challenged to do their best to encourage and help CBMC grow in this Region.
