Ruth’s Shawl was led by the Lord to start the School of Ministry in 2012, because there is very little actual biblical training in the villages of Malawi.  The Schools of Ministry present curriculum and materials for teaching inductive bible study, pastoral training, biblical instruction, and biblical foundations for leaders in the villages.  The Ruth’s Shawl staff and interns not only teach the current curriculum, but also facilitate examinations with follow up and mentor the learners so that they are encouraged and strengthened to pass on what they have learned with confidence.  The goal is that the learners go out to their villages to share the Word of God with knowledge and integrity.
