Vijayawada, India. Do you know where that is? Neither do I. But as of today, Ryder Kumar and David Nelson are starting to train a new group of pastors in India using the BTCP materials.
In 2009, using these same materials, we began training 50 pastors in South India, and 50 pastors in North India. In a few days we will begin training them on book 7 out of 10. One of the pastors who began learning this course in 2009 is named Vinay Kalapala. He and his brother have been so impacted by the BTCP course, and how it has made them more effective as pastors, that they are now hosting a new group of pastors in Vijayawada. So this week, Ryder and David will be beginning to train these 35 pastors in book 1 – Biblical Interpretation and Study Methods. Here is a photo of the team that is beginning this new course.
Pray that God will inspire these pastors and fill them with excitement in learning how to study His Holy Word.
