Examples of Training Seminars
Over 70 leaders came from the islands of Negros, Cebu, Bohol, Samar, Leyte, Palawan, Iloilo and other smaller islands.  A team of six leaders met for special sessions on how to setup an effective training program.  Two courses were translated into Cebuano and Ilonggo in preparation for the training.  Participants noted that the method was very Biblically based and very simple to use.  Missionary Paul Wilson is encouraging and enabling church leaders to implement the program.  He is facilitating the translation and publication of TEE materials in four languages. 

ETHIOPIA-June 2010

Seventeen staff members of the Great Commission Movement completed the training.  The course on Christian Marriage was translated into Amharic in preparation for the seminar.  Participants commented that the program was both Biblical and easy to use.  Eshete Belete is overseeing the implementation of the program.  A pilot program was started as they worked on establishing policies and procedures.  Three courses have thus far been translated and published in Amharic, the language of Ethiopia.  The program is now expanding to various parts of the nation.  The Great Commission Movement works with thousands of churches with mostly lay leaders.  The opportunities and needs for this program are great in Ethiopia.

IVORY COAST-September 2010

Andy Gable of Christian Missionary Fellowship asked us to assist in strengthening their leadership development program.  They use a combination of T.E.E. courses and intensive training seminars.   T.E.E. Courses have been translated into French, but only a few have been utilized.  Their administrative leaders revitalized and expanded the T.E.E. part of their training program.

INDIA - February 2012

I had the privilege of teaching thirteen lead evangelists working with North Andhra Coastal Evangelizing Association.  We covered some principles of leadership development and the TEE method of multiplying leaders.  T.B. Paul and his family have started 50 churches in their home region in ten years.  They have a training program for their evangelists but need to develop a more effective way of training leaders for the local church.  Since many of their potential leaders do not read nor write, they will use audio lessons followed by open discussion led by an evangelist. 

HAITI - August 2013

     Working with GSI Haiti and sixteen church leaders in the Fond de Blanc area, I introduced them to the three-step method of leadership development.    We set up an ad-hoc committee to work on policies and ways to administer a TEE program in their area.
     I return in 2014 to train group leaders for pilot classes that will enable them to determine the best way to operate the classes.  Three TEE courses in Haitian Creole have been published by Literature and Teaching Ministries.
