ABWE missionaries in Togo, in partnership with Togolese pastors and teachers, have developed a plan to create truly Christian schools–including writing African Christian texts, training Togolese teachers, and providing some permanent classroom facilities. Beginning with a core of 17 church schools, in 2006 we are training 21 first grade teachers and providing Bible, math, and language curriculum for that grade. Over the next 5 years we will train second through sixth grade teachers and provide curriculum for each grade. As God sends personnel and finances, we would like to train secondary school teachers as well.

Togolese for Christ.

The Church Resources Team provides Christian literature and audio-visual materials in French and some local languages at affordable prices to West African nationals and missionaries. The Communications Resource Center (CRC) and Print Shop in Togo provides evangelistic and discipleship materials at subsidized prices including Bibles, songbooks, Bible studies, various Christian books, Gospel tracts, recordings, correspondence courses, and more. Literature is acquired by direct purchase from within and outside of Togo, or it is written or translated and prepared for publication by members of our translation team.

This full service hospital gives opportunity to minister to both the physical and spiritual needs of the patients that come each day to the clinic and hospital. We are always looking for individuals to come and help in the tremendous ministry.Hospital Administrators-Annette Williams-Administrator and short-termers helping with finances.
We aim to
accomplish this purpose through five major objectives: 1) Evangelism;
2) Discipleship/mentoring – encouraging missionary and Togolese women
to be involved in discipling and/or mentoring at least one other
person; 3) Chronological Bible Studies – enabling Togolese women to
teach others using a chronological Bible study method; 4) Development
of a structured program of Bible education – working in conjunction
with the Africa Baptist Theological Schools to develop a multi-level
program of Bible education for women; and 5) Health education –
teaching and training in disease prevention in local churches both as
an evangelistic outreach and as a means to enhance the lives of
Team Coordinator-Dr. Sharon Rahilly
The leadership training team helps local churches to train their people to better understand the Word of God. We will be working through the African Baptist Theological Schools (A.B.T.S.) to accomplish this. This starts from the local church level to the seminary level on one of our campuses.

The Literacy program exists to strengthen our churches by helping
our members learn how to read the Bible in their mother tongue. We are
currently training teachers in our local churches to teach classes in
both the Ewe and Kabyé languages.
We are also using literacy
as a form of evangelism in the southern part of Togo. Teachers are
opening classes to anyone in the village and able to share the gospel
during the classes. We hope to use literacy as well for hard to reach
people groups, such as in the Anufo language for the Northern Outreach
With the New Testament translation currently finished in the
Kabyé language, we are concentrating literacy training in Kabyé because
only 5% of the people can read in this language and would love for someone to pick this up and run with it.
for this ministry, for the teachers that they would have strength and
love as they teach and for the students that they would persevere.
