Transforming East Africa

In most of sub-Sahara Africa, 90% of the population lives in rural areas (“the Bush”) where the roads are dirt at best, and utilities do not exist. Water, if drinkable is drawn from a local source and sometime carried miles each day to survive. without irrigation, a drought or late rain spells disaster, disease and death. There is very little actual investment or services provided by their nation’s government because whatever has been allocated by their government or outside loans from nations like the US is all but siphoned off by layers of corruption before it ever hits the Bush.

Yet the greatest force that keeps Africa labeled as the “Dark Continent” for the last 200 years has been the corrupt values entrenched in Tribalism which bends the souls leaders at almost every level of society, including the Church.

Here is what our Pastor-Teachers do for pastors, children and women in need in their assigned “Region.”

Serving as Regional Shepherd to Shepherds – a Typical month

  1. Travel as a team (2+) to their  regional pastoral conferences (25-200)
  2. Train for 2 days, teaching the Warrior-King
  3. Lead 22% of pastor attendees into first time salvation
  4. Give Swahili Bibles to those (18%) who have none
  5. Return to the same area every 60-90 days alternating their support and in the filed training of pastors to other practical Bible College level courses with training in Nutrition, Chigger and Malaria relief, microbusiness (help facilitate microloans as needed), and 21st Century Farming and Animal Husbandry. In many cases they will bring medicine with them as well as charts, and  expert videos
  6. Recruit and Mentor interested leaders to enter our 12 month  training-mentoring model to join help expand the circle of Regional Shepherds

Much prayer, planning, and communication, goes into each event. Core 300 USA reviews and approves each proposed conference and its budget and then funds the expenses for each of our African leaders. The lions share of cost is the event itself which works out to about $4 per attendee. It includes a 55-page syllabus, food for two days, a pen, a place to sleep, counseling if needed, and a Swahili Bible if they do not have a Bible of their own (20% do not).

The first day calls each man to follow Gideon out of the winepress (Judges 6) into the Arena of God’s calling as a “Mighty Warrior.” Old armor is exposed and torn away exposing the real man needing acceptance and healing. They then join Gideon’s 300 to claim victory over any all things that have beaten them down and recover their ‘mojo’ or their dignity and value as both a man on earth and an adopted son of their Father in heaven. Freedom is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

The second day of our training teaches every man, who now stands erect in victory, to look to Jesus as his Mentor-Servant-Leader, and beginning with his wife and children, serve them like Jesus serves and loves us. Finally they become skilled in finding and leading other men in the same way and families and churches are transformed.

This August, we made our 3rd trip to West Kenya to train 500 pastors, bishops, elders and senior leaders from over 10 denominations. In addition, business, denominational, correctional, and senior government leaders were present from 5 countries. All were called to a radical new model of Biblical leadership and then equipped for their Arena as husbands, fathers and leaders. Their mission was not just to learn, but to go and teach other leaders using our curricula. and as this movement mushrooms by Holy Spirit’s initiative, true inside out transformation is happening!

Through this messages I repented of beating my wife. My tribe taught me beating her was the only way to be a real man, but now I see Jesus is a servant first. I am no longer afraid of these men, and my wife and children are so very happy!”   – Pastor Onchano – March 2017

Today, using our Warrior-Priest-King curricula, momentum is growing at a annual rate of 380%! Every month as groups of pastors as large as 450 gather for our 2-day conferences, trained volunteer pastors spread these words of transformation across East Africa.

We don’t pay salaries because these men have their own churches or businesses, but by faith we have been covering much of their ministry expenses. But since March 2017, we began to outgrow our small ministry’s capacity to support these good men. Will you and your family join by coming alongside of one of these Pastors for $150/month for 12 months to cover their travel, food, conference and mercy service expenses?

DONATE  now so we can help support these 14 teams of volunteer pastors who are traveling across the countrysides teaching pastors and bishops so they can break the spells of tribal brutality and teach their men to love their wives and children. Any monthly gift helps us meet our $2,400 per month commitment to cover their on-the-ground expenses.      

Core 300 (Principle Based Leadership) is a 501c3, Volunteer-led ministry. Every donation and all published materials serve our mission to empower Pastors and rescue men worldwide.
