Pastor Training – Haiti
Is Pastor Training needed? Please answer these questions.
If your pastor could not tell you where to find anything in the Bible could you accept that?
If your pastor read a verse as a passage for his sermon and then spoke about everything else but that verse and never referred to the Bible, could you accept that?
If your pastor did not know how to interpret the Bible by using the context, other scripture and misinterpreted the scripture, could you accept that?
If your pastor had no way of improving his Bible teaching, would you approve of this course for him?
These are Haitian pastor’s problems.
We have been working with a group known as the Bible Training Centre for Pastors for the past 5 years using Creole materials. The ten courses are custom designed and self-contained to provide a comprehensive training equivalent to a foundational level Bible college or seminary. The manuals also provide the pastor or church leader with a lasting resource for future ministry and personal growth. www.bibletraining.com
The concept is that local men become the trainers so that the materials can be moved into their culture yet retain all the soundness of Bible Doctrine.
We are using 3 pastor-leaders to train the rest of our pastors. We have chosen the most “servant hearted” pastors to be the teachers. Training began July 24, 2006 and will end on May 2013. We have a graduation celebration set for the weekend of May 25 and 26. This will be a great day for the pastors as they have worked hard to complete this course.
Pastors in a small group study
The cost is about $100 per pastor for the materials plus the ongoing cost of the training including travel and meals. Right now we have 32 men taking the training. They are taking this training back to their church and are already teaching books 1,2 and 3 in many of the churches. There are about 165 people in the churches taking the course at various stages. This is promoting greater understanding and hunger for the Word and helps to withstand false doctrine.
The personnel involved with this project need your prayers. Mike Comtios, from Winkler, Manitoba, is leading the organization of the training and training the 4 leaders. He travels to Haiti 2 times per year. Paul Romeus and Bernadin Belizaire handle the finances and lead the training.
