Livingstone School of Missions branches into year-long program


New program will provide young people with more in-depth training


Sixteen young adults from nine different African countries are part of the first class of a new year-long missions mobilization and training initiative offered by the OneWay Africa team this year.


The training is an intense residential program where students gain invaluable field experience to take with them back to their homes and communities.


The program is an expanded version of the Livingstone School of Missions month-long training, which has equipped more than 160 people for gospel ministry since it began in 2017. The program has been incredibly effective the past five years in raising up young people in Africa who are passionate to advance God’s kingdom.


“LSM has given me more zeal and passion for lost souls,” said Hannah Bonah, a student from Sierra Leone.


In Ghana alone, graduates have gone on to serve as staff with OneWay Africa, as workers with The Jesus Film Campaign and as volunteers and evangelists in urban missions outreach.


By expanding the month-long program to a full year, students are able to gain even more hands-on experience sharing the gospel.

In May 2023 these young men and women will have spent three months of training at Philip Center West in Accra, three months serving in a Muslim community, three months serving in an animistic community and three months back at the Philip Center for skills development.
