Helping to Equip Faculty
Please join us in helping our first school planting partner, EPPIBA (Pastors School of the First Baptist Church of Atibaia), pursue their vision for fully equipped and credentialed local faculty.
The leaders at EPPIBA have recognized Tiago Silva as a gifted teacher and scholar who would benefit from further training. Tiago is currently serving as an instructor at EPPIBA, the senior pastor of First Baptist church in Pedreira, and the Director of the Post Graduate program for Preach the Word.
Tiago will be enrolled in the ThM program of a well-respected U.S. seminary under a special status. The program is residential, but the seminary will not require Tiago to move. Instead, they will require him to travel to the U.S. 7 times to participate in classroom-based instruction. Tiago will then write his thesis in Brazil. Tiago and the stakeholders in Brazil will be paying for the flight costs as well as his lodging for his visits to the U.S. TLI is seeking to raise $7000 to cover the tuition cost for Tiago's ThM degree.
