Saved, Discipled, Sent

Saved, Discipled, Sent

Just as Jesus called his disciples to himself, taught them the Truth, and then sent them out on mission in groups to tell others, Bubu and Bahiti are doing the same.

Bubu and Bahiti lead the Discipling Believers project in North Africa. Their mission is to see nationals from the Middle East and North Africa trust Jesus for their sins, to disciple these young believers, and then to send them out into the mission field in their own region.

The Discipleship Method

To best accomplish their goals, Bubu and Bahiti use an internship model with their disciples. Each school year they gather a group of interns they train in theology and practical ministry methods. At the end of each year they run summer camps to give the interns practical training in outreach ministry among other young people from the Middle East and North Africa.

God Gives the Increase

Through prayer and by God’s grace, He has done miraculous things in the lives of the graduating interns Bubu and Bahiti have worked with so far.

All of last year’s 11 interns are now sent as full-time missionaries with Bubu and Bahiti’s team. And each of them have a vision for their future ministries in the Middle East and North Africa regions.

Here are just three of these students’ visions »

We’re convinced that God will continue to use national believers who are sent as missionaries to grow the local church in North Africa and the Middle East. Many of Bubu and Bahiti’s former interns have been trained in using portable electronics like smartphones, mini projectors, and speakers to reach areas where people can’t usually read or write or where there is no electricity.

It’s exciting to imagine and pray about what God might do in the lives of many more nationals from the Middle East and North Africa in the coming days.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20–21)

About Discipling Believers

Bubu and Bahiti call and 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.Even the most outgoing national Christian communities in North Africa were facing massive challenges to disciple and equip young grown-ups to become the leaders of the next generation church.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 Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
