Rowan's Story

Rowan Dogabu is from Dogura, the place where the Anglican church began in PNG. He was involved in crime as a teenager. His sister led him to Christ after 9 of his relatives suddenly died following a heavy night of drinking alcohol. Rowan hopes to teach the youth back home to follow Jesus Christ. The Community Development course will grow him as a disciple, show him how to teach others and give him the ability to establish self-sustaining projects that deliver practical benefit. It costs about $1500 a year for board and tuition at CLTC. Some people choose to sponsor a student to do the course.

Meet Desmond

Desmond Gi, one of our 6 students, is an Anglican minister who pastors a church in a remote location only accessible by plane. People in that community are very poor, like most of the people in PNG. His church knows the Word of God, but it has very little idea about how to put faith into action. He already knows theology but at CLTC he is learning to be a stronger disciple. Ministers in PNG are expected to establish self-sustaining projects to support their family and church. However, no one taught them how to do that. He is in his 2nd year at CLTC and is doing well.
