FOWM #225 Theological Training for South Sudan's Women

Despite many years in Ethiopia’s refugee camps, the South Sudan church has remained strong by placing their hope in Jesus Christ. Yet the leadership of the church recognizes that they can grow even stronger with theologically trained leaders. They acknowledge that women are severely marginalized both in their society and in the church. They believe that new strength will come when women are provided theological training and encouraged to participate in the work that lies ahead.

Reverend Matthew Jock, program director for the ECCSS, recently wrote, “Our leadership is very enthusiastic to empower women in all levels in the church, but there are many challenges to fulfilling our wish. The lack of resources, together with instability in South Sudan, has prevented us from achieving this goal.” Thank you for helping the ECCSS to overcome one of their obstacles by raising $35,000 in order to send dedicated South Sudanese women for formal theological training.

Thank you for your generosity.
