Systematic Bible training goes mobile.

By March 1, 2004

International (MNN)–Mobility,modular and ministry–the three major components of an outreach program by the Evangelical Baptist Mission.

The program, also known as Tri-M takes systematic Bible training to Christian leaders where they live. It enables the students to remain in their own countries, and continue in their local church ministry with minimal interruption.

According to EBM, the program provides a curriculum of one or two-week courses which are taught two or three times per year. Each module generally offers instruction in up to three areas: doctrine, Bible exposition, and practical subjects.

Ministry goals include equipping national pastors and Christian workers in their local churches, establishing new churches, assisting in the establishment of indigenous Bible training programs, and encouraging evangelistic outreach.

The “target group” consists of those who are presently involved in ministry. What they learn can then be taught to those over whom God has given them spiritual responsibility.

Explanation aside, teams are now in the field using the program to advance the Gospel. Teams just finished a training session in the Ukraine and Moldova.

Another Tri-M team taught elements to both men and women in Niger’s churches. Pray especially for the pastor of a new church plant there that he would be enriched in his learning and be able to share that which he is learning with his newly formed church family.
