Madagascar 3M Launches the Christian Heritage Tour

By God’s grace, we are hoping to open our Preaching Institute on August 19th 2023. As part of our strategy, we are looking for ways to subsidize students’ tuitions to make it accessible and affordable.

The Christian Heritage Tour (CHT) is an exciting opportunity for you to sponsor our students. The first tour will be on May 15th to 21st or 25th, 2023.

The idea of CHT has been in my mind since I was able to be part of the Christian Leadership Tour of the Grand Canyon by Canyon Ministries in 2017. We then brainstormed ideas to put together a tour that would enable participants to discover the island’s unique endemic ecosystem and God’s faithfulness in bringing the gospel and preserving Christianity in the country.

Now you can be part of an adventure of a lifetime!

CHT enables its participants to enjoy the unique fauna and flora of Madagascar, while learning about the history of the first missionaries and the development of Christianity in the island. The participants will also engage with local congregations as the trip includes visits to present-day churches.

CHT combines History, Nature, and Adventure. Field experts in History and Biology will be on the trip to answer questions from the participants, providing insightful inputs as to the unicity of the fauna and flora in Madagascar.

Though primarily designed for pastors and church leaders, couples, young adults and other believers are also welcomed on the Tour.

Facing a Task Unfinished

In a country plagued with syncretism because of the cultural attachment to animist practices, as well as an increasing influence of Islam and the Prosperity Gospel Movement, there is, by God’s grace, a few remnant churches faithful to biblical truth. Among the few, one group of churches that has remained conservative is the FFBBM (Malagasy acronym for “Association of Biblical Baptist Churches in Madagascar”). There are currently over 100 churches in the FBBM Association scattered all around the island, the majority being countryside churches. 60 to 65% of the pastors of those churches have received very minimal to no theological training at all. There are also still thousands remote villages where people have not heard the name of Christ. The Lord is at work raising a new generation of leaders within the FBBM and a great effort is currently done to make training accessible to pastors.

The intent of Madagascar 3M is to come alongside the existing structures and all the relevant stakeholders and be involved in identifying, training and equipping men to study, obey and teach God’s Word. Ultimately, our desire is to open a Bible-teaching seminary in Madagascar, focusing on expository preaching, so to develop a generation of godly church leaders whom will then impact many lives. Our primary objective is to work with Malagasy pastors. But in the future, and as the Lord sees fit to provide the opportunities, we are praying to be able to reach other men of God from French speaking countries.

Our strategy is to offer training opportunities to different audiences and in a progressive sequence. In the first phase, we will offer:

  • Lay Leader Biblical Training at Ankadivato Biblical Baptist Church: It will be available to any men desirous to join, especially those involved already in church ministry, in and around Antananarivo, the capital city. It is planned to start early 2018 and will take place every First, Second and Third Saturday of every month.
  • Modular Countryside Training for Pastors: Upon request from local churches, Madagascar 3M will start to offer in August 2017 to organize 9-10 day (Tues-following Friday) intensive courses focusing on basics of Pastor Ministry. Topics ranging from: Bible Study Methods, Bible Storyline, Pastor’s home and Christian living, Mechanics of Preaching.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in joining us in our endeavor to see a spiritual revival take place in Madagascar.
