The Bentleys live in Dar Es Salaam working to catalyze movements of the gospel in Tanzania. They see their role in Tanzania as identifying, equipping and releasing leaders who will multiply the gospel into their natural social networks.
Tanzania, like many developing countries, is going through a huge shift from rural to urban. In 2007, for the first time in world history, more people lived in cities than people who lived outside cities. Not only is Dar Es Salaam a large, growing city, it is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and in recent years its population has increased dramatically. It is the economic, social and cultural heart of Tanzania, and so that is where we want to place ourselves. The city is a tough place to live sometimes, but it also has the potential to have an incredible impact on the country of Tanzania. Our vision is to equip leaders in Dar who will multiply disciples and house churches in the city as well as throughout Tanzania.
