Why has God blessed WordPartners so much in equipping pastors to teach God’s Word? One reason is EMPOWERMENT.
Take Cuban Pastor Julio Cesar, for example. He’s experienced other courses in expository preaching before. “Most of the time these courses become a monologue or a conference. The value of [WordPartners] training is that one learns also from the students. We are all part of the learning process. It’s a double role, serving as a student and a teacher.”
Participation in our training is key. We want to do more than offload information to students, we want to empower partners with a shared vision of advancing movements of God’s Word around the world. This means not only giving pastors tools to preach and teach the Word, but gauging their progress and providing feedback to make sure it’s working.
Julio Cesar gets it.
“[WordPartners training] is really cool because students develop thoughts and sermons based on the principles we learn. This fuels us and also gives us feedback. At the same time, the student can be reproducing this training in home groups, Sunday School, and other places. . . . WordPartners has helped us greatly.”
Through faithful men like Julio Cesar, a movement of God’s Word is taking root in Cuba. And training in Cuba wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for key partners from Brazil and Ecuador who have completed training with WordPartners and now travel to Cuba to train with us.
This is empowerment in action!
