Donate to the 2018 Lent AppealThe 2018 ABM Lent Appeal supports three program areas: 

leadership formation and training

ABM’s Church to Church Program supports the theological formation and leadership training of our Partners.

Funding for the Lent Appeal will go towards Newton Theological College in Papua New Guinea, helping in a number of spheres, such as curriculum development and the provision of running water. Bishop Jeffrey Driver is currently working with the college to mentor a new Principal.

The Church to Church Program is supporting a men’s mentorship program in the Dioceses of Machakos and Makueni in Kenya. The dioceses have identified men as the ‘missing’ part of the Church, and want to re-energize them by developing Christ-like character in their families and community.

ABM also supports Leadership Formation and Training at St John’s Anglican Seminary in Kitwe, Zambia.

Please help our Partners to enable their lay and clergy leaders to reach their potential, bringing Christ’s love to the people they serve.

This project is non-tax deductible.
