School Established in Gorblee in May, 2010
School Established in Monrovia in January, 2011
There are 2 schools of Global Missions in the West African country of Liberia. The country of Liberia is a republic of about 5 million souls. Liberia is recovering from an extended civil war in which it lost about 90% of its GDP. Much of its infrastructure was destroyed and most Liberians are without reliable electricity and running water. The people struggle ro provide the basics for their families, like clean water and daily food. But they are working hard to gradually rebuild their beautiful country.
The first school established by Global Missions was in Gorblee in May, 2010. Gorblee is a rural community in Grand Bassa county and is about an hour and 45 minutes from Buchanan on the coast.
Brother Maxwell J. Whea is the dedicated director of the school in Gorblee. Maxwell has been preaching and teaching the gospel in Liberia for many years. There are many precious souls in Liberia who have obeyed the gospel due to his tireless efforts.
The first graduation in Gorblee was in July, 2013

The school graduated 12 men and 3 women in April, 2019. While in school, these students labored with 9 different congregations, helped to establish one new congregation, baptized 202 into Christ, and restored 59 who had fallen away.

Report From Gorblee, Liberia
By Maxwell Whea, Director
We are grateful to the Almighty God for his grace, love and mercy upon us during the pandemic in that God kept all of us alive to enter another year, 2021. It was the working of God and not of us. Our appreciation and thanks to all of our supporters, especially 21st Century Global Missions, through J. C. Enlow and the rest of the hard-working staff. In this report, we will give you a report of evangelism done in Grand Bassa County during the last month, December, and early January 2021 where more than five (5) souls were saved.
We will also highlight the program held in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County. The program in Grand Bassa was organized by churches of Christ in that region. The good thing about the program was that every aspect of the program was facilitated by 21st Century /Gorblee School of Preaching trainees and former graduates. God has blessed us that through the training, some of the men that graduated from the preaching school have become elders and deacons in the Corn Farm Church in Grand Bassa County. I am humbled and proud to see that the training has yielded a wonderful fruit by producing elders and deacons in the church in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
Below on the right are two men who came to accept Christ and brother Zaway, one of the graduates and now elder, is taking their confession. They were baptized later. There were 265 attendants at the program.
