GOING AND GROWING
Reverend Richard and his wife Dr Carole Jackson, former missionaries in Sierra Leone (1969-79)received an unexpected invitation in May 2001 to attend the Conference of the Methodist Church Sierra Leone (MCSL).
The churches, mosques and the country had been ravaged by ten years of destructive conflict which was coming to an end. This return visit inspired a vision, originally outlined on an aeroplane 'sick-bag', of how an International Learning Centre based at Cliff College in the Derbyshire Peak District, but working in partnership with the churches in Sierra Leone might contribute to the renewal of their church ministry and mission. 'Going and Growing' shares an inspiring story of how this pioneering adventure of 'Partnership in Training', has grown into the Cliff College International Training Centre, providing Value Added Training with churches in Sierra Leone, Cuba and Nigeria. Trainers going from Everywhere to Everywhere help Everyone to grow.
