Theological Education by Extension (TEE) is a program designed to give church lay leaders on-the-job training. During the three-year course, lay leaders learn about the Christian family, the life of Christ, Christian doctrine, and how to witness to nonbelievers.
Our residential school, Bethel Bible Institute, graduates 10 every other year. The church is growing at such a rate that there will never be enough pastors for all the churches if our Bible school is the only way Christians can be trained for the ministry.
Even a small gift goes a long way in helping with salaries, travel expenses to the villages, and printing costs for the fill-in-the-blank students courses.
During the three-year course, lay leaders learn about the Christian family, the life of Christ, Christian doctrine, and how to witness to nonbelievers. This project has trained more than 200 lay people. Funds will be used for salaries and transportation costs fo the team that teaches the courses and/or fund the cost of printing the courses being taught.
A gift of $100 a month would supply more than half of the director’s salary. Fifty dollars a month would pay for the director’s travel to encourage the study groups in the villages. We are encouraging the national church to pick up the director’s salary and travel costs. Other funds could go to electricity to keep the computers working and to reprinting student manuals.
