“Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ Philip asked. ‘How can I,’ he said, ‘unless someone explains it to me?’ So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him”(Acts 8:30-31).
Favor’s Portable Bible Schools (PBSs) mobilize new disciple-makers into physical and spiritual war zones. Whether a life-time believer or brand-new convert, all come hungry for the Word and for training. These emerging leaders come from hidden corners, of nations restrictive of and hostile to the Gospel, for the two-month discipleship training that Favor brings to rural villages, always moving further outward into the unreached tribes. This ministry helps tens of thousands overcome barriers to study through literacy training and to spiritual maturity through the Holy Spirit and the Word, empowering them to live boldly in their contexts - persecuted or free.
Each boot camp trains participants to live Biblically in Jesus’s Kingdom and multiply disciples in their context. Taught by national leaders to multiply and accelerate new leaders, each PBS rejuvenates lifestyles around the Word and instills a love for the One behind the words.
Most importantly, each of the tens of thousands of African emerging leaders we graduate through PBSs graduate with a certificate, a physical Bible in their own language, and the training to make disciples and start (or rejuvenate) healthy congregations of people following Jesus together.
