Bible Pathways (BP) is a 9-session, 3-year curriculum developed by Alan Lewis of Evangelical Free Church of America’s (EFCA) mission arm – Reachglobal. SHARE implemented the curriculum among the Turkana pastors and missionaries of Kenya with the primary purpose of training them in expository preaching. The ultimate goal is that local churches will thrive under compelling sermons based on the solid foundation of the text and structure of the Word. That will result in believers who are confident and well-versed in the Truth, as they are fed through their shepherds.
The first class of 14 Turkana pastors/missionaries graduated in November 2017 and the last class of 46 graduated in December 2018. Throughout the program, 2 Tim 2:2 is heavily taught – that the students need to be teaching other pastors the BP material, so sound expository preaching can be self-multiplying and self-sustaining throughout the churches being planted in Turkana, and beyond. The pastors have been working on training other pastors and missionaries, and even elders, in their respective home churches in remote villages. The latest BP training was held in March 2021, where 18 trainees attended (4 Motivators and 14 church leaders) attended and pledged to train a total of 80 other leaders on the methodology by end of April 2021.
