It’s our joy and privilege at Redeemer to support those spreading the good news of Jesus Christ around the world. In particular, our current mission partner is a Bible School in The Gambia.

Mission Partner

Servants of the Word (SOW) is in its eighth year of running part-time classes for pastors, evangelists, children’s workers and others, attracting students from a wide range of ages and nationalities (The Gambia, Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea and Sierra Leone). This sort of training is desperately uncommon in the whole of West Africa, so there is a wide and exciting potential impact that SOW can have.

Currently SOW can only run part-time classes in rented classrooms, which makes it hard for many to attend regularly. But they have a bold vision for the future: work is underway to develop a residential site from which they can offer full-time courses. The new campus in a strategic location for the whole west Africa region. Courses offered will continue to train people for bible-teaching ministries, focusing on preaching and discipleship.

About The Gambia

The Gambia is a small country in West Africa, with a minuscule Christian evangelical population. In this context, very few people have had training or experience in how to understand and teach the Bible faithfully. For the church to flourish, there’s an urgent need for reliable local Christian leaders to be equipped to proclaim Christ faithfully from the Scriptures.
