Welcome to Wajumbe Training Center!
Wajumbe Training Center, an outreach ministry of Kingdom Driven Ministries, is a short-term, full-time, discipleship training boot-camp designed to inspire, inform, equip and mobilize ministers in all aspects of field ministry and church planting and development.
Wajumbe means “messengers” in Swahili, and it refers to the itinerant field ministries of apostle (modern equivalent to missionary), evangelist, and teacher. These roles are the most often neglected in the pastor- and Sunday-service-centric ministries of today. However, these roles played an indispensable part in the efficacy and vitality of the early church and are still needed more than ever today.
The best description of the the material that is presented at Wajumbe is biblical and apostolic, or early church. This can be further articulated as “kingdom” and “charismatic.” Kingdom, first and foremost, refers to the supremacy of adhering to the literal teachings of Jesus Christ. Charismatic means believing in and operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Both of these attributes are presented in the New Testament and likewise the first couple hundred years of the post-Apostolic, or Ante-Nicene (pre-325 AD) church. These two descriptors accurately describe the genre of the materials taught and practically modeled in the training.
Since in discipleship more is caught than taught, the training will not simply be an intellectual download. Yes, theology, from a distinctly kingdom perspective, will be taught. After all, teachers and evangelists need this requisite foundation. However, the instructors (who are all experienced field evangelists and teachers) will also demonstrate and model all vital aspects of field ministry. For this reason, class size will be limited, so that field operations may be simulated through drill and practice and teams will actually be able to venture into the field.
The course emphasizes New Testament practices as best practices for fruitful kingdom expansion. Some examples include: going out in pairs preaching the kingdom, healing the sick, expelling demons, making disciples, baptizing them and teaching them to obey Jesus, establishing fellowships that meet in private homes, a Spirit-led interactive service, every saint a soldier on the mission, complete and total surrender to the Lord’s service, unity of mind, spirit, love, purpose, all in humility.
