TRAINING FOR DISCIPLESHIP
At BTBAB, our primary focus is to grow people (not an organisation). This way God can grow the organisation through people who are growing in themselves. Discipleship is central to equipping people for ministry and has been incorporated into our Toolbox programme as a tool for the body of Christ.
