“You yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
- 1 Peter 2:5
Africa’s challenges are very complex but many have defined it in simple terms: leadership. It is all about not having the right leadership. The same can be said of other nations as well and the same can be said of the modern-day Church. Instead of just complaining, we believe strongly that something can be done about it, thus the emergence of the Livingstone School of Leadership.
The Livingstone School of Leadership (LSL) is a Ministry of OneWay Africa. OneWay Africa is part of the OneWay Ministries family, which is an International Missions Organization that seeks “To activate people to exalt Jesus Christ and advance His gospel to the multitudes” OneWay Africa also runs the Livingstone School of Missions which was founded in 2005 in Botswana and has trained several Missionaries and missional Christians from 17 countries in Africa and beyond.
To glorify God by raising a new generation of Servant Leaders who lead with integrity, excellence, intentionality, and mission-mindedness toward the pursuit of Transformation in Africa and beyond.
