At the being of 2010 God clearly said,
“It was time to enlarge our tent and strengthen our stakes.”
I felt clearly it was time to birth a Spiritual work in the Teso area.
Shalom Bible training centre was started on the 6th March 2010, with about 10 students. The aim was to equip and encourage leaders and Pastors in the word of God, and give them a strong foundation in the Word of God and on how to walk out the Christian life .
We also provide teaching on basic subjects of leadership and major doctrines in the Bible. We offer support and counseling to Pastors and go around the local churches encouraging and supporting them.
Our tent is certainly being enlarged and we are having many applications to start Bible courses in rural villages and nearby towns. People are hungry for sound teaching of the Word of God. The desire is to bring Pastors and teachers from the UK and other places to teach in the Bible College. We had our first KSM Conference in October 2011, seeing 120 saved. The speakers at this conference were Pastor Cait Rice from God’s House of Prayer to all Nations, based in Carlow, Southern Ireland and Olive Bustard from Ballymoney, Northern Ireland. Both of these teachers are returning this year on separate occasions. From that point we have had Christine & Jim Black, who have come out on 2 occasions for conference and evangelical outreach. Also, Olive Bustard has continued to come every year since as a speaker for conferences.
We now have Sunbeam Community Church, which is doing well.
If any one feels a burden or desire to sow into this area of the work, it is possible to give a donation or set up a standing order.
Below is Ellen’s Bible School Group 2015-2016
This is the group of students that graduated Shalom Bible School with a diploma. They attended a 5 day seminar in Kisumu where Ellen was one of the speakers. All students thoroughly enjoyed the event.
Interested in getting involved?
Maybe you would be keen to come out to teach in the school even for a short period or speak at a conference. We would like to hear from you, we hope in the future to bring out evangelistic teams and youth teams again if you feel you would be interesting in bringing teams from your church please let us know. Our desire is to bring the local churches in Teso together, for prayer and fellowship, as in unity God says we can ‘command a blessing and revival can come.’
