Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Missionary Training Center

Kilimanjaro School of Missions is a partnership between Brad Smith Ministries and the Kenya Assemblies of God to train up Kenya nationals to reach out with the Gospel into the neighboring border countries. We offer a twelve month residential program that takes those who are already ministers in their home country and teaches them the necessary skills to work cross-culturally.

Population(s) Served

Through regular monthly services and the purchasing of bibles and devotionals for inmates, BSM and their team minister hope and healing to those who are incarcerated.

Population(s) Served

Brad Smith Ministries takes teams of people on exploratory journeys in the deep bush of Africa to reach tribal people who have never been reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After making converts, we send pastors and plant churches among them.

Population(s) Served

Brad Smith Ministries focuses on raising up the next generation of ministers along with coming along side of those who need extra help. Ministers who are in transition, need help financially, or who are going through a life crisis such as health, death, or divorce are our focus. Through physical and spiritual means, we strive to make them whole again.

Population(s) Served

Brad Smith Ministries not only offers weekly content for free on YouTube and other social media outlets, but also makes their ministry products (books, devotionals) available on a donation basis only. This is to ensure that no one is left out of hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ due to a lack resources.
