Dispatch Africa 2012:
Dr. Sheehan and I representing, World Hope Bible Institute, gathered with national leaders from 3 Baptist conventions on a wild game preserve conference facility near Gweru, Zimbabwe in a historic meeting to consider launching a Bible institute to provide theological education for indigenous pastors who have no other training option. The meeting concluded with leadership from all groups electing to use the Diploma in Ministry from the World Hope Bible Institute to satisfy the basic educational requirements for ordination across their 3 conventions. This allows new church plants to have qualified and recognized pastors throughout the nation. This could also be a first step toward unification of the 3 conventions into a single more effective national convention. The group joined for a photo (below) including WHBI faculty member Noel Vincent, missionary Dr. Greg Fort, Dr. Stuart Sheehan, and Baptist leaders from throughout the nation.
