This report concludes a year of reports for 2015. What a great year this was for extension training. While this was a shorter week for reports due to the end-of-the-year holidays and planning for 2016, the power behind these reports exists nonetheless. Students in Denver are enjoying a short break from classes, but plans for January include new courses and a new class of students. Please pray for the year ahead and all it holds for the work of training preachers.
As we close out 2015, we look forward to the potential of what the new year brings for the work of training preachers. One of the primary areas we anticipate in the year ahead involves the simple concept of growth.
We plan to help bring about personal growth for all the students who participate in the program. Looking into the potential of improving curriculum development, we are excited about preparing a stronger, culturally adaptive, and more in-depth approach to curriculum for each location. This approach will provide students with greater opportunities to learn in ways that will lead to the next area of growth.
We want to assist local congregations in numerical and spiritual growth in moving towards the biblical design set forth by God. As students complete training in each location, they will be equipped in a knowledge and application of God’s word in ways that enable them to help local congregations where they serve to grow in ways that model the plan God established.
We also desire to see the overall program grow by adding new schools. The direction of the future is exciting as we plan and develop new schools in locations around the world that provide the type of training that continues the cycle above. We ask you to pray with us that God will continue to bless the direction of the program, all to His glory.
