New schools train believers to spread the gospel

Recent graduates of the Tyrannus Missionary School in Mauritania

Dozens of believers in the West African countries of Mali and Cameroon left their homes this month for 10 months of intensive training to learn how to reach their countrymen with the gospel.

They live, study and learn at two new Tyrannus Missionary Schools that OneWay’s Streams of Living Water ministry opened in February. Those accepted to the school make a big commitment — not only to leave their families during the 10-month training program but also to spend three years in the field after graduation to reach out to Muslims and other unreached people in their community.

Tyrannus Missionary Schools are part of Streams’ mission to recruit, train and send workers to the Arab world. It is a ministry that has been expanding at an unprecedented pace in 2021 and 2022. More than 300 students have been trained at 13 of the schools so far, and more than 20,000 people have given their lives to Christ through outreaches held by graduates.

In addition to the two new schools that have opened in Mali and Cameroon, two more schools are expected to open this fall in Niger and the Central African Republic.

Attending the school “was a life-changing period in my life because I knew that God called me to the ministry, but I did not know how to serve Him,” said Wol Lual, a graduate who now helps train missionaries with Streams in Juba, South Sudan.

“With Tyrannus, I knew the direction of what to do for the Lord and how to lead a life that is pleasing to Him,” Lual said.

He now serves as an Arabic translator, church-planting expert, quiet time teacher, evangelization coach and administrator. The leaders provide intense training through hands-on practice going house to house with the gospel.
