Focusing on training those who live on the field already.
Investing in those that already know the language and the culture.
Theologically equipping the nationals with training materials in their language for their culture.
Global Baptist Training Foundation currently operates in eight countries on three continents where GBTF takes college-level theological training to pastors in developing nations without charge to the pastors. Each year, hundreds of pastors across the world receive on-site instruction in theological disciplines and practical studies. A total of seven courses make up the basic level of training. Each class offers a certificate of completion after attendance and assessment requirements are met. The entire program offers a diploma after all seven courses are completed. A second level of training offers additional in-depth studies including Hebrew, Greek, and Biblical exposition. The goal of GBTF is to provide national pastors in developing nations, who have little or no access to higher education and even less resources to afford that education, with the same Biblical foundation as Bible college graduates anywhere in the world.READ MORE
