Oral Bible Schools – Kenya

Most of the pastors in Africa are trained in Bible schools which use literate (often Western) methods. These schools haven’t experienced other methods. The pastor then graduates and tries to communicate the Bible with his people. They often struggle to understand their pastor. He in turn becomes frustrated by their lack of response and changed lives. He wants them to grow in maturity and naturally pass on the good news.

Could there be another way of doing teaching, evangelism training and even theological education? This video from Kenya explains oral Bible schools and the impact that they are having.

I particularly like the fact that the video is about Kenya and all the people speaking are locals.
