I recommend this program to my friends and colleagues because the program is very helpful to our ministries. We do not get a degree only but also receive spiritual lessons. (Myanmar, '05 Grad)
My greatest appreciation to God for the vision of the Seminary in bringing the training and tools to my country. (Philippine Grad '05)
What drives me to study is the hunger for learning. I know that someday God would bring me back to the class room to train future pastors and Christian workers. (Philippine Grad)
In Acts 2 we read that Peter, when speaking of the events surrounding the crucifixion of Jesus, says this. "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Himself." God is calling to Himself a people for His name. Evidence of this is seen in each of our ABTS classes.
And in Proverbs 27, verse 17, we read, "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." As the church in Southeast Asia grows, the needs of the church grow. Undershepherds and servant leaders are needed. As ABTSers come together to study the Scriptures and increase their ministry competencies, they are sharpened and honed. God is using them in turn to call others to Himself.
Are you one that God has called to Himself? Are you one that He has raised up to help meet the needs of the church?
