TLI partners with the First Baptist Church of Atibaia (PIBA) in Atibaia, Brazil. Since 2013 TLI has provided consulting, support, and instructors to help them start their own church-based seminary (EPPIBA). Students receive both academic training and supervised ministry experience as a PIBA elder mentors them over the course of three years. The school has graduated 15 men in two cohorts, with another 5 men set for graduation in early 2021. EPPIBA's graduates are active in pastoral ministry across Brazil, conservative Christian publishing and in the leadership of an international mission. TLI continues to provide credentialed instructors who prepare their own courses three times a year.

Every pastor has his dreams. I have mine. One of my dreams for my ministry in Atibaia was a Pastor's School. I always understood that the responsibility of pastoral formation falls upon the local church.
