Since the 1990s Cuba has experienced huge gospel growth but the political situation means that churches are limited by size.
Lots of small house churches have sprung up but they're often pastored by men who have had no training for the role. Two thirds of those teaching the Bible on a regular basis have received no training – that is around 4,000 churches.
Prédica Fiel (which translates as Faithful Preaching) has a vision to train thousands of Cuban church leaders and bible teachers how to faithfully interpret and teach the Bible. Before this project began, there was no one teaching others how to do expository bible preaching in the country.
Prédica Fiel runs three day training courses in expository bible preaching and runs pastor preaching conferences five times a year. It is headed up by Alexis Pérez – a local church leader who has a degree in Theology and studied on the Cornhill Training Course in London. Alexis travels around the country to deliver courses to churches and also spends time preaching in order to model the form of simple, clear and faithful bible teaching that Prédica Fiel teaches.
We are back to in-person workshops in Cuba!
It is a true joy to share this news with all you. We just finished three workshops: two in Havana (one for women and one for men) and another for men in Santa Clara, a city in the centre of the island. We were very encouraged to see how pastors came back to train with us – in both venues, many of those who came had attended our workshops in the past. It was also great to see new faces at the workshops, with around half of the participants being first-time attendees. By the end of February, we had a total of 95 men and 40 women in attendance. It feels really good to be back to the in-person training work that the Lord has given us.
