French Ministry Training
French Ministry Training is something CLI is seeing a need for in the world. French is a spoken language in over 40 countries. CLI is in the process of translating classes into French in order to provide French ministry training everywhere.
Over 20 countries in Africa have French as the official language. Graduates of CLI in French Africa report the desperate need for French ministry training. One graduate, Domoina, lives everyday in a place where the Muslim religion is active and spreading. This graduate writes “my goal is to reach people in my country and in French countries, mainly in countries where Muslims still misunderstand the place of women in the family and society. According to the Muslim religion’s point of view in 10 years, Madagascar will be ‘muslimed’.” CLI wants to raise up more leaders in Africa by offering CLI classes in French.
Africa also is a place where Christianity is growing very rapidly. One problem is that many of the ministers have little training for being a pastor in a church. CLI is adding French in order to allow French ministry training to be available everywhere in Africa.
The French Ministry Training is needed in Africa but also in France, Haiti, Belgium and so many more countries. Adding the French language to CLI will allow for millions of more leaders to have the opportunity to be trained for the ministry.
The French program is being lead by Dr. Paul Mpindi, who has a passion to help French speaking people all over the world. Mpindi’s “Mission French Africa exists to preach and teach the Gospel to win French speaking African Muslims to Christ, to disciple African Christians in Biblical stewardship, and encourage the Body of Christ in America.” Mpindi’s vision and the CLI mission connect at a strategic level and French Ministry Training will be available at CLI soon.
