Affiliations and accreditations

PTI exists to help pastors to preach the Word of God clearly and thoroughly. It does this through three separate but often interlinked activities. They are In-country Training, Distance Mentoring and Learning Resources.

PTI serves (usually rural) churches by providing ‘Teach to Preach’ in-country training courses. Whilst never ceasing to maintain its doctrinal standards and ethos, PTI’s courses are flexible and easily adapted to local and cultural needs.

Three types of course are currently available, all provided by expatriate trainers with extensive pastoral and teaching experience. Normally lasting for five days, they take place in locations that are accessible to as many local pastors as possible.

It is also essential that these churches learn to become mature and independent as quickly as possible. So after training courses PTI also sets up networks of local pastors who can in turn equip others for effective teaching and pastoral ministry.
