New Innovative App for Rural African Church Leaders.
A new and promising app for African pastors, eVitabu, was recently launched at a Ugandan conference. Released by the UK-based African Pastors Fellowship, It came preloaded on tablet PCs given to church pastors from East African countries. The app is designed to bring Christian teachings and practical skills lessons to communities across East Africa.
Installed on solar-powered Google Android tablet PCs, the ‘eVitabu’ app was developed for free by Jonathan Haddock and Michael Berry, both members of Canterbury Baptist Church.
The eVitabu app includes studies on personal, spiritual and pastoral growth; audio Bibles in local languages; theology courses; video lectures by Christian leaders; community development toolkits; and guides on family healthcare, leadership, advocacy, peace-building, and sustainable agriculture. The app is designed specifically to support the African church in remote areas.
Dave Stedman, CEO of APF commented: “APF resources and enables African Christian leaders, of all denominations, to minister effectively through the local church. eVitabu has the potential to enable thousands of rural church leaders to access great quality training material, possibly for the very first time. Excitingly it also provides a unique platform for the voice of the Africa church. African leaders can use eVitabu to upload and share their own material with other church leaders, so everyone benefits.”
The app is a welcome development as it will help develop the knowledge and leadership skills of rural church workers and pastors. It will also facilitate seamless exchange of information and ideas within and around the communities that make use of it.
