No mission work could be termed completed without the training of indigenous leaders who would take over the mission work after the exit of the missionaries. The GMB School of Missions is aimed at training leaders for the various people groups that we are reaching or intending to reach. It is our strategy to reach the unreached and at present, GMB School of Missions has over 25 people groups in training at our Schools of Missions.
The schools were established to help people called by God on how to fulfill their calling of the Great Commission. The schools seek to produce committed Evangelists, Church Planters and Self Supporting Missionaries (Tent Makers). Majority of our students are farmers, artisans and traders mostly from rural areas. The schools are affordable and enriching.
Global Missions Board has, at present, three dry season schools of missions in Oke-Bola, via Oghomoso, Minna, and Gidan Ahmadu. The operation, apart from timing, is similar to the explained school of missions for professionals and others. The students receive the training during the dry season and return to their farm within the communities they came from to put the training into practice as tent-makers. The training is within 3 contact sessions of 3 months (January – March) per session.
