We are hugely thankful to the Lord for the generosity of supporters who are enabling the work of the Institute of Bible and Ministry here Tanzania.

Through developing the Retreat Centre in Sanga Sanga our goal is to have long term financial sustainability for the work of IBM.  The Retreat Centre will be a source of income itself through the renting out of its facilities to other organisations and individuals for conferences, workshops, weddings etc.  Our Retreat House, Bandas and campsite are already generating income.  However, the building progress at the Retreat Centre is reliant upon finding funds from supporters.

'It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.'
