Few people realize that Africa has the youngest population in the world. In fact, around 40% of the population is under the age of 15. Astonishingly, the median age (where half the population is younger than that age and half is older) is around 20 years old, compared with 38 years old in the USA and nearly 44 years old in Europe.
These statistics bear out a conviction the Lord has placed individually and corporately on the hearts of the leaders of the DPM work going on throughout Africa: Without delay, we need to develop the enormous potential of the young people.
Let’s go back 65 years to when Derek and Lydia Prince first went to Kenya in 1957. For five years, Derek was the principal of a teacher training college in Nyang’ori near Kisumu. His desire was to sow into the lives of the young men and women who came to be trained as teachers—and his influence had a profound effect. Not surprisingly, many of his students rose to prominence in their professions. From time-to-time, we meet them in our travels.
Derek Prince Ministries Bible School - East Africa some graduates of 2021
"First week of December 2021, 530 DPMBS students graduated in 14 different places in Kenya. This took place after successfully completion of recommended study.
It’s a great testimony, that some of the students have come back to volunteer in DPM outreach programs. We have finished grouping them, some will be handling Prison outreach across the Nation, some we directed to minister to the sick in hospitals as they give Derek Prince Newsletters and proclamation cards.
We give God the Glory and the honor." Geoffrey DPM Coordinator.
