The School of the Bible is entering a new phase. As you may know, the school has been one of our main outreach efforts in the city of Recife, making Bible classes available for the community since 1982. And it has become the main focus of my ministry here over the past couple of years.
Our goal is twofold: 1. To teach the Bible and make new disciples and 2. To train future church and ministry leaders. The first goal we accomplish by offering basic Bible and language classes (English and Spanish using the Bible) to the public. The second goal we accomplish by a new Theology training course that is divided into 12 modules such as Interpreting the Bible, New and Old Testament, Apologetics, Preaching, Spiritual Formation, and so on. This course is more structured and demanding then our regular courses, but its purpose is to meet the needs of busy church members by presenting theology training in an accessible manner. Students are expected to graduate from the Theology course in two to three years.
