Titus Project

**Prerequisite: The successful completion of a DTS (Discipleship Training School) and a SBS (School of Biblical Studies – All 3 terms)

“…to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth which accords with godliness.” – Titus 1:1

The Titus Project is a 3-month outreach project for graduates of the School of Biblical Studies.

The first 3 weeks consist of focused training time where participants are equipped to become Bible teachers. This is followed by 8 weeks of outreach, where participants are able to practice their newfound teaching skills and bring Biblical education to communities, churches, etc… The project concludes with a few days of celebration to remember and thank God for all that He did! 

Training

The first 3 weeks of training will focus on the following topics:

  • Preparing and Presenting a Teaching
  • Teaching Inductive Bible Study
  • Creative Teaching
  • Preaching
  • Bible Overview
  • Ministering Cross-Culturally
  • Teaching through a Translator

This time of learning will also include training in personality types, team dynamics, and required reading.

Outreach

The goal of outreach is to equip the church worldwide with practical tools to study the Bible for themselves.

We aim to pass on the knowledge of Inductive Bible Study to pastors and church leaders, so that they will be better equipped to teach and train their congregation in the Word of God. Teams usually teach Inductive Bible Study seminars, Bible Overview, and various requested books/topics based on the needs of the audience.

Outreach locations are selected prayerfully on the basis of need and relationship. We try to work repeatedly with the same people/locations in order to have a long-term impact.

Celebration

During celebration week, teams have a chance to share about all that God did, assess their growth, and process their experience as a team and individually.

Why We Do It

The global church is suffering from a lack of Bible knowledge.

Despite Christianity’s explosive growth, churches in the developing world lack trained Bible teachers. Presently, there is only one formally-trained church leader for every 450,000 people outside of the U.S. Some say that 85% of Pastors worldwide have had no formal, theological training. This means that most of the 77,000 people coming to Christ daily are left with underqualified leaders to disciple them.

Our aim is to meet this need by training and sending Bible teachers to places in desperate need of Bible teaching.
