Timothy Training School
23 May 2016

The Timothy Training School serves to fulfill Christ's mission across cultures by offering a unique theological training to Guarani speaking believers in rural Paraguay. Our desire is to train men and women leaders from area churches to know God's word more deeply and to communicate God's word more effectively using a culturally appropriate technique of Bible storytelling. Formal theological education is not available, especially in Guarani, the heart language of the hard-working farmers who lead local churches. Trained pastors are in short supply and small churches cannot afford to hire one. Our goal is to prepare them to effectively proclaim God's Word and to engage their culture, whether in small groups or large ones, to multiply Paraguayan Bible storytellers among the laity of rural Paraguay.

The Timothy Training School enables those whom Christ is calling to participate in his harvest regardless of where they come from or where they go by sending these trained leaders back to their towns and people groups where Christ is not yet know in order to teach and train others.

Please pray:

  • For good weather! Rain is the number one reason why training workshops are cancelled in rural Paraguay. Dirt roads turn to muddy quagmires and bring travel to a halt for days on end. Pray that each Timothy Training School participant is intentionally discipling the next generation of Bible storytellers.
  • For the elders and deacons of the Forest Door Bible Church as they assume more and more responsibility and ownership of this vital ministry.
  • That this training can be multiplied to other regions of Paraguay. The church elders have already been invited to share this training with unreached indigenous groups within Paraguay.
  • For open doors for the Gospel.
  • For the scattered churches represented by the participants. They have little training, encouragement or fellowship with other believers.
