Our national partners, Pastor Garry and Pastor Smith, lead a seminary and biblical institute located just outside the city of Santiago in the Dominican Republic. They are providing theological training for Hattian pastors and aspiring ministry leaders in their native languages of French and Creole. Due to the ongoing violence and instability in Haiti few opportunities remain for Haitians to receive theological training in their home country. TLI has partnered with Garry and Smith to bring theological tanning to approximately 50 Haitian students who are committed to growing in their ability to understand and communicate the Scriptures.

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. The point of the whole course is to equip the trainees to answer the hermeneutical Question 2: How does it fit in the Bible? The issue of the Bible’s whole story is hermeneutically potent and foundational to handling individual texts and passages rightly.
