Bishoftu, also known as Debre Zeyit, is a key city in Ethiopia’s Rift Valley, the site of several universities and resorts, and the main base of the Ethiopian Air Force. TLI taught one cohort of church leaders in Bishoftu in 2016~18. Some graduates of that cohort now teach alongside us as we train a new cohort in Biblical understanding, hermeneutical wisdom, and skills of expository preaching of the word of God. We want them to equip the saints to defend themselves from errors of Islam and Prosperity Preaching and to proclaim the truth to others. We currently train about 45 current or future church leaders: three classes in the Amharic language, one in the Oromo language, all through interpreters.
