Berean Safari brings Christian leaders to Nairobi, Kenya, annually for transformational Bible study. Last year seventy-five leaders came from several countries, primarily in Africa. The gathering takes its name from the Bereans in Acts 17:11-12, who examined the Scriptures daily, and from the Swahili word safari, which means a journey. So Berean Safari is a journey of discovery into the Scriptures. This journey gives the leaders an opportunity to refresh, reflect, and refuel their lives through intensive study of Scripture together. Those attending range from pastors to young people 18-25. So not only are seasoned believers being challenged to dig deeper in the Scriptures, but emerging leaders are also being trained.
At the same time they are learning study skills that are instilled in new churches planted among unreached peoples. The method of inductive study which is used is particularly helpful for new believers, not only in learning to understand what the Scriptures are saying, but also in applying the Scriptures to their own context. So many of the issues they have to deal with are different than what we face in our own context, and they must learn how to apply Scriptures to whatever situations and issues arise.
Thank you for your support that enables a strong foundation for the future to be prepared in areas where the gospel has just begun to penetrate.
