This past year marked a number of new milestones for our ministry. We graduated
our first students in Greece and Romania from our three-year training program.
They came from Iran, Afghanistan, Ghana, Eritrea, Nigeria and Romania. We
opened our second school in Novi Sad, Serbia. Our staff and missionary force
doubled in size. We published the Journal of Global Christianity and curriculum
for training in 5 languages.
We have a significant year-end need of $125,000. Every year a significant amount of support comes into TLI in the final month. Read more below and go here to help. We are way behind going into the last two weeks of the year.
TLI trainings pastors in groups of 12-15 people per teacher. We meet three times a year for three years. We emphasize how to interpret the Bible, Biblical Theology, the Attributes of God and Expository Preaching. We translate the curriculum and teacher notes into the language of the students to help them have a long-term resource. At the end of three years the pastors and leaders are better equipped to lead their churches as they can better interpret and preach scripture.
We partner with churches in the US to send missionaries to teach in formal schools. We have missionaries in Indonesia, Vietnam, Serbia, Brazil and Uganda.
We partner with leaders around the world to start formal schools to train pastors. We have started schools in Brazil and Serbia and are planning to start to schools in India.
