their lives into full-time disciple-making and missionary endeavor whever the

How will you make Disciples at Straight Paths Eden?
Dependence on God: Prayer
We believe we can do NOTHING without abiding in Jesus Christ. With this reality in mind, prayer, and communion with God through prayer is of the utmost importance to our Discipleship philosophy. We are given the grace to know God and we pursue knowing Him well!
Renewing our Minds: Studying God's Word
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and it contains revelation of the person and will of God for His children. We seek to immerse every student in a culture of study and application of God’s Word as authoritative in the life of a born-again follower of Jesus Christ!
Continuing Jesus' Earthly Ministry
We seek to walk with Disciples and lead them by example in seeking to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with lost souls, trusting that He will stretch out His hand with accompanying signs and wonders to make Himself known in this world. This includes daily, intentional outreach, witnessing and prayer in the local community.
Sustainable, Tent-Making Evangelists
We long to see every one of our Disciples learn a vocational trade so that he or she can support his or her own family or life without being a burden or financial liability on the villages and new churches that they plant as they go out with the Gospel! This is a vision for Sustainable-Church-Planting.
MEET THE DISCIPLE-MAKERS
Disciple and Discipler, 20 years as an active, African Pastor. He LOVES Jesus and wants to see everyone know Him! Dedicated in every fashion of the word, Edwin's faith is always full of action.
Debs is the head of the girls side of discipleship at Eden. Deb has a passionate desire to see all the young women at Eden knowing they are loved by God and valuable in His sight. We look forward to integrating the girls discipleship program into Straight Paths very soon!

There will be several more disciplers joining the team soon, but we cannot announce them yet!
Please keep praying for more passionate discipler-makers to join us!
Several young men who have grown up at Eden have discerned the calling of God to go into the world to serve Him and proclaim His love in Jesus Christ. They are the first generation disciples ready to go and seek the next generation and sow the seeds of the Gospel believing for Kingdom Multiplication in rural Zimbabwe and to the ends of the earth.
We believe "faith comes by hearing, and hearing from the word of Christ."(Rom.10:17) By faith, we long to get print and solar audio Bibles into the hands of every village, family, and person in our district by 2020. Printed Shona Bibles cost an average of $10 and are quite readily available in the capital city at this time. We would like to distribute 2,000 every year through evangelism and church planting. Will you join us?
The Clinic is our greatest outreach tool into the greater community of the Doma region. We treat nearly 300 people per week entirely free of charge and you can make this ministry of compassion continue! You can help us extend the loving, healing hands of Jesus to the sick and fearful of this region.
