NAIC in partnership with Moore College, Australia provides a four days training in Preliminary Theology to the village church planters. This course is aimed to train rural pastors who are involved in church planting in systematic theological knowledge and understanding. The courses are conducted on important Biblical doctrines as well as Old and New Testament books. The key feature of PTC is to teach about the revelation of God unfolding from age to age and the continuity of the revealing nature of God. Very few of the village pastors in India get the chance of learning theology in a seminary setting, which is too costly for the poor pastors. But NAIC provides this quality training to the church planters at free of cost.
One course, “Creation to New Creation”, was held from August 2-5, 2016. 47 Pastors from Jharkhand and Bihar states attended the course. It was conducted in Hindi language. A team under the leadership of Pr. Matt Lemsing from Australia provided fantastic training, group discussions and testing. The Lord enabled us to accomplish the task of training pastors in a smaller way to reach out the entire nation. In the past years 407 pastors were trained in different PTC courses. The second course on the same subject is conducted in Vizag from August 9-12, 2016. Please pray.
