Christians for Israel Training-the-teachers program
In 2012, Christians for Israel International is focussing on "training the teachers" as part of our mandate to provide ongoing support to new and developing C4I branches in the nations. Our goal is to equip, train and support (young) teachers and communicators in the various regions in which C4I affiliates are active. We are doing that through a series of Training conferences in 2012, coupled with the development of an online educational website. Four conferences are being planned in 2012 in partnership with the local Christians for Israel organisations:
- Vienna - 5-8 July — for C4I affiliates and partners in Europe
- Kampala, Uganda – 18-23 September 2012 — for C4I affiliates and partners in East Africa
- Nigeria – 24-27 October 2012 — for C4I Affiliates and partners in Central and West Africa
- Singapore – November 2012 — for C4I affiliates and partners in Asia Pacific.
Our vision is to teach and equip a new generation of speakers and communicators in the regions, who can take our important message into the churches and nations, and also train others to do so.
We are looking for sponsors to support us financially in this exciting and important project.
Please pray for the preparation and organization of these conferences and for the further development of the online educational website. More information: email@example.com
