Thank you so much for your prayers for our Fall 2014 Bible Conferences in India. Our graduation services were such a blessing both for our team and the graduates, their families and guests. We will be adding photos and summaries about our trip soon – stay tuned!
Please join our prayer team!
We are excited to let you know about our upcoming Bible Conference in India. Very soon a team will be leaving for a three-week trip to facilitate Bible training conferences in two parts of India.
We are particularly excited about this trip because this is our first graduating class!
This trip is the culmination of five years of Bible training with a group of 80 pastors from various parts of South and North India. Our team will teach through the tenth and final book in a series of instructional materials written by BTCP (www.bibletraining.com). These pastors have studied hard and put into practice what they have learned through our twice-a-year conferences over the past five years and they will be our first graduating class! Our team will teach through this last crucial book on Missions, Evangelism and Discipleship. We will have one five-day conference in Lucknow culminating with a graduation ceremony. Then we will travel to Hyderabad and hold a conference there for pastors in that area. About 40 pastors will be traveling to each city from the rural villages where they live and lead their churches.
The pastors will be bringing their wives to this conference and we will have special seminars designed just for these ladies. We will have the privilege to teach the Bible to these women who rarely have the opportunity to leave their villages or to gather as women to learn from one another.
In case you were wondering…
Yes, we are still raising funds for this trip! Each team member needs to raise $3,500 to fund this trip. Not only do we need to cover our own travel expenses, but we also need to fund the conferences themselves. The pastors that we minister to could not afford to get this training in any other way. Your tax-deductible donation will be helping to cover the cost of travel, meals and books for our team and these 80 pastors and their wives.
