Inductive Bible Study Methods

May 2016 Pastors Conference in Zambia
Teaching Inductive Bible Study Methods

Training the indigenous pastors is the heart and mission of Hope Builders Ministries Zambia. Jeff Hawkins (Hope Builders Ministries USA) organized a Bible Study Methods seminar for May 22-28. 48 first and second level leaders from HBMZ gathered in Musenga outside of Chingola, Zambia for 4 days of study. Pastor Dan Finfrock with Intensive Care Ministries was our guest speaker and trainer.

The men were generally overwhelmed with the amount of information given to properly study the Word. This, however, also opened the door for a deeper awareness of the need to study the Word Inductively. HBM and HBMZ has always taught the importance of Inductive Bible Study Methods but this is the first intentional and in depth seminar on “HOW” to do that. It is our desire to make this an integral part of the 3 year curriculum for all the pastoral students.

Thank you for praying with us and for us as we partner with Indigenous Missions in Africa training pastors in the Word of God.
You can partner with us and support this mission below.

YOU can also be an advocate and HELP raise support for this mission by introducing and inviting your friends to partner with HBMZ.

Sharing the WORD of LIFE

Support INDIGENOUS MISSIONARIES in India this Christmas.
HELP provide Bibles to poor Christians in India.
Pictured is Missionary Prabhukiran and wife Swarna ministering in a church in a slum compound in India. These brothers and sisters struggle to survive working as day laborers seeking to provide for enough food for the day. They can not afford Bibles but desperately long for the precious Word that gives eternal life and hope for daily living.

Your brothers and sisters in Christ need the Word of God just as you do. YOU can help. Send a gift to HIMIndia to help support Prabhu and Swarna and other Indian missionaries bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to their people in India.

Bible Blessings in Zambia

Last November I was joined by my dear friend and partner in ministry Pastor Keith Walsworth in Zambia. We spent a month working with Hope Builders Ministry Zambia sharing the Word of God and ministering to ministers of the Gospel. One of the joys was to not only share in teaching the Word but also giving the Written Word to our brothers. Many, and I can say most, of the men we serve in Zambia do not have the means to own a good study Bible let alone study in a Bible School. Hope Builders Ministries in the USA provide a three year Bible curriculum to pastors, a program to train them and also Bibles for them to use in their studies.

Here are a few pictures of the Lusaka North Hub studying Marriage and the Family with Keith and receiving new Life Application Bibles to help them in their studies. Last year when I first met the men they had some old tattered Bibles. Some had only a small Gideon New Testament. Some had none at all.

Today these men are advancing in their training and learning to preach the Word expositionally and contextually. It has been a great privilege and joy to watch them develop in the knowledge of the Word and the proper use of the Word in preaching and ministry.

Join us in supporting these Ministers of the Gospel in Zambia. Your gifts provide the training and resources we take for granted.
