Our team has been hard at work with 10 Training Centers in Guatemala and 2 in Mexico. We are traveling and training every week of the month, currently equipping over 260 pastors!
Since March we have celebrated the graduations of 4 Training Centers from our Pastoral Training program! The training centers from Mazatenango, Santa Barbara, Genova and Villa Hermosa were the first pastors and pastoral leaders to complete our program and receive their Diploma in Theological Studies!
Beginning in July, all of our training centers will be studying Systematic Theology. Our local pastoral training team is currently rewriting our Hermeneutics (Bible Interpretation) course, so we decided to move some things around until it is ready to go. We are excited to all be teaching the same course, and we are very proud of our team for taking on the task!
We are also beginning the search for the next round of Training Centers, set to open in January of 2018. Our trainers are spreading the word, and even attending local conferences! Praise the Lord, the presence and reach of Chosen People International is steadily growing!
Things You Can Pray For:
You can pray with our local pastoral training team and our leadership team for the following:
- Pray for the Lord’s continued blessing and favor over our leadership, our trainers, and for the pastoral leaders participating in our program.
- Pray for the pastors leaders who have graduated from Mazatenango, Santa Barbara, Genova and Villa Hermosa. Pray that the Lord would use the theological education that they have received to complete the Great Commission in their communities and culture!
- Pray for our Pastoral Training team as they rewrite our Hermeneutics course. Pray that the Lord would bless their efforts and that He would give them wisdom to impact this culture for His kingdom.
- Pray for new Training Centers to be opened in January of 2018. Pray that the Lord would help us to locate the pastors and the areas in need of theological education.
