In partnership with a Filipino leader who works to train rural "village" pastors, TLI will begin a new, non-formal training location on the northern island of Luzon just a few hours outside of Manila. New Tribes Philippines has a camp near Olongapo used for training their national and international missionaries, with dorms and classrooms that will host our training. The pastors who will participate in the classes come from rural locations throughout the island of Luzon. They are already in pastoral ministry roles, but have little or no theological education.
Course 6: Letters (Ephesians)
Course 6 equips the trainees to understand letters accurately and to communicate them clearly and relevantly. Ephesians has been chosen as a representative of this genre. Sample passages from Ephesians will be the focus (e.g., 1:1–14; 2:1–10; 3:1–13; 4:1–16, 17–24; dip into chapters 5–6).
