Most of the leaders working with Naboth and Alice are young men and women who deeply love the Lord but are ill-equipped for the tasks facing them. Many of them have never received any formal education at while others have received only primary school education.
Very few-less than 10 out of the 150-have reached secondary school.
More disturbing to Naboth and Alice, however, is the lack of adequate information about ministry. Virtually all the leaders had even never had the most basic instruction about ministry.
They also lack clear knowledge of foundation doctrines of the Christian faith.
To alleviate this situation, Naboth and Alice have partnered up with Josh and Ann Dunagun to open up HARVEST BIBLE INSTITUTE (HBI). The institute provides intensive short term courses in foundational Christian doctrine and ministry, for the start. The courses are residential, lasting one week each monthat a time.
9 courses are held in one year. Emphasis is laid on how to do ministry within the rural African context.
The institute admits any one called to the ministry but priority is given to those already in leadership positions. Courses taught in English with interpretation into all the local languages of students who won't be able to understand English. Both leaders from Redeemed Church and from other churches are accepted.
The institute is located at the Central Redeemed Church Makenke Mbarara , a few steps from the simba batalion miltary barracks base . A fee of not more than 10 dollars per student is charged to cover costs for scholastic materials.
Accommodation and food will be free.
