GoalThis project seeks to raise $6,300 to provide pastors' wives with education and preparation for ministry.
SummaryThe Kikongo Women's School prepares pastors' wives to meet the demands that will be placed on them as key members of the church and to carry out their own valuable ministries.
DescriptionIn many churches, the pastor's spouse takes an active role in ministry within the congregation, though unlike the pastorate, there are no seminary programs for this important role. Few pastors' wives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have the ability to seek out such an education for themselves, as three-quarters of them are completely or functionally illiterate. The Women’s School of Kikongo is a unique program that prepares them for the demands of rural ministry. This program seeks to educate wives in reading and writing as well as in biblical studies and evangelism while their husbands are trained in a partner program. The women gain confidence and the skills needed to become spiritual leaders in their communities.
