About LEADERSHIP EDUCATION MISSION FOR AFRICA - LEMA INSTITUTE

Location:

120 W Morrell Street, PO BOX 420, OTSEGO, MI 49078, US

Mission Statement

LEMA Institute exists to equip Christian leaders in Africa as well as immigrant pastors for healthy, biblical, financially independent ministries.

Description

WHY LEMA?

Christianity is exploding in Africa!
The lack of opportunities for higher education has left the church with many untrained leaders. It is believed that more than 70% of ministry leaders in Africa do not have any formal ministry training. Most of the immigrant pastors from Africa come from this pool of untrained leaders.

Without knowledge of God’s Word and a biblically trained leader to guide them, it is difficult for African Christians to live faithfully in the midst of political instability, poverty, and generations of unredeemed tribal customs. This leaves many churches in Africa vulnerable to corruption, false teaching, and ungodly worship practices.

The troubling factors mentioned above combine to create problematic ethics in ministry. All too often the corruption and abuse in the church place barriers in front of God’s lost and faithful, making it more difficult for them to live into the hope, promises, and truth that God has for His people. The cumulative result is that even while the African church is growing in numbers, it has not been able to realize anything close to its potential for sending missionaries to the world. Even in the US, immigrant pastors struggle with a lack of informed knowledge of how to lead and share God's word in the North American context.

The LEMA Institute has been established to address these needs by providing ministry training opportunities and accountability systems so that these leaders can improve their knowledge of the Word and flourish in their ministries.
