About Discipling Believers

North Africa is largely hostile to the Gospel. Yet amidst the persecution, God is raising up young nationals to know Him and lead churches and ministries in His name. From their training center, they go out to countries across the region to places where they are uniquely gifted to serve with their appearance, language, and cultural understanding. The leaders of this project, Bubu and Bahiti, focus on discipling North African and Middle Eastern believers so that the nationals can go on to lead churches and ministries among their own people in this region. Bubu and Bahiti do it primarily through summer camps, English camps, and a nine-month internship program designed for intense discipleship. As a result of Bubu and Bahiti's North African ministry to young people, God has raised up dozens of nationals who love Jesus and desire to proclaim His name in their cities and countries alongside their local church.

Meet the Leaders: Bubu and Bahiti

Bubu and Bahiti disciple North African believers in their twenties to become reliable leaders in their local churches. They live among the people, learn their language, become friends with the local leaders, and invite the teenagers of the local evangelical churches to evangelistic summer camps and discipleship winter camps. In 2008, Bubu and Bahiti began a yearly, multi-lingual, nine-month training program for young potential church and mission leaders. Over the years many of their students have become full-time pastors, youth and worship leaders, and church planters in various countries in North Africa and the Middle East.
