What does SRM do in Africa?

In the beginning .....

A mustard seed-ministry

Since 2010, SRM has been providing training services to churches to help pastors and leaders grow in their capacity and competence to serve as ministers in the world-wide church of Christ. We invite leaders from all denominations to participate. Areas of teaching include: church growth and renewal, discipleship, evangelism, worship leadership, Biblical scholarship, church dynamics, theology of ministry, and conflict management.

Again he said, "What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade."

 Mark 4:30-32

Pastors' Training Conferences and Seminars

Since 2009, Spirit Renewal Ministries has made a significant commitment to partner with Kenyan based ministries for the purpose of training pastors, and providing Bibles to churches in Kenya. To date, we have traveled to Kenya in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020, undertaking training conferences and preaching events. In 2020, we conducted training in eight sites in Kenya and Uganda, with ~ 400 pastors and leaders in attendance.

We also undertake a ministry of care for widows and orphans in Western Kenya. The work continues even in the absence of pastors from Canada - SRM has an amazing network of offices, coordinators and volunteers in East Africa - we have so much to be thankful for and look forward to many years of service there. Please pray for and support this vital ministry.

Evangelism and Bible Distribution.

SRM ministers and leaders have been preaching and teaching in rural and city churches throught the region since 2010. Churches are expanding, lives arer being transformed, and there is a great sense of gratitude in communities of faith wherever we service.

The primary mandate of Spirit Renewal Ministries’ (SRM’s) Bibles For Africa program is to distribute Bibles to the poorest members and adherents of churches served by pastors who have attended SRM’s training programs in East Africa. In some cases, the Bibles are used for local mission outreach, specifically to those who have no income and who could never afford a Bible. Additionally, the program helps pastors who have attended SRM’s training conferences who have no personal Bible. Since 2011, SRM has provided 2,854 Bibles to churches in Kenya and Uganda. The Bibles are sourced from the Kenya Bible Society in Nairobi, in the languages of Kiswahili, Luo, Maasai, and English. SRM thanks the many donors!
