Need 2 more teachers
Pastor Tesfaye Nenko Edema, a trainer of ministers who is widely respected among many denominations, invited TLI to launch its first cohort in the Rift Valley city of Hawassa in 2015. That first cohort graduated in March 2018. He and TLI launched the second Hawassa cohort in March of 2019, using TLI’s all-new Curriculum 2.0. Six Ethiopians teach alongside TLI’s teachers as “Mentors.”
Currently 47 trainees, mostly pastors and other church leaders, divided into four classes, are learning skills for preaching each genre of Scripture. Each trainee is required to pass on the training, not when he or she graduates, but after each workshop, to a group of others. Though delayed for one year by COVID-19, the Hawassa 2 cohort is due to graduate in October 2022.

Course 2: Knowing the Bible's Story
Course 2 explores the general flow of Christ-centered redemptive history from Genesis to Revelation. Major themes that appear throughout—each including aspects of continuity and discontinuity—are God’s kingdom, covenants, people, kingship, priesthood, prophetic ministry, and mission. Each theme is embedded within Scripture’s testimony to the fundamental storyline of God’s plan to reconcile the world to himself under Christ’s kingship for his glory.
