Botswana's 1st Baptist Seminary


Botswana has about 26 Baptist churches in the entire country, but only about 15 of them have someone in permanent leadership/a pastor. This year, we will be starting the first Baptist Seminary in Botswana that will allow people to be trained from all over Botswana to not only go and make disciples, but also to train leaders to help strengthen some of our existing churches and train pastors to teach at some of our existing churches and hopefully new church starts we will have in the near future. We are so excited to see how the Lord is going to use this seminary so that all may hear the Good News! The Principal of the Seminary recently wrote: “At Baptist Convention Seminary, we focus on the importance of God’s Word and not men’s ideas and provide practical ministry tools. With emphasis on the Word, the anointing of the Holy Spirit and prayer, we endeavour to prepare men and women to fulfil the destiny of God on their lives.At Baptist Convention Seminary, we focus on the importance of God’s Word and not men’s ideas and provide practical ministry tools.
