Since opening in November 2003, MERF’s training centre at “Loki” has trained more than 1000 evangelists, pastors, elders and lay leaders from various tribes. Brought by charter plane from remote areas of South Sudan, they receive four months of basic biblical and theological teaching. They return home equipped to share God’s Word with their communities. Guest instructors are experienced pastors, elders, and Bible teachers who sacrificially serve these groups of about thirty students.
MERF supports and resources an International Church at the Lokichoggio compound. The church was recently extended to accommodate a growing congregation. MERF also supports a number of local pastors (trained at Lokichoggio) around Lake Victoria and among the Turkana people.
This has led to another five churches being established in the surrounding region.
