Training Congregation Leaders in Israel
We are praising God for granting such wonderful opportunities for training congregation and home group leaders in the land of the Bible.
Over the past two years, SGA’s director of Bible training for Israel has conducted training for 84 servants of the Lord from several congregations. Adjunct teachers have come from SGA-sponsored seminaries in the Commonwealth of Independent States. The 42 students who completed the required courses received certificates from Irpen Biblical Seminary in Kiev, Ukraine.
In addition, an excellent Russian language apologetics conference was held in December at Israel College of the Bible. At the conference, the launch of an ICB Russian-language curriculum in February 2013 was announced. Please keep these important developments in your prayers, as commitments are still lacking for some of the necessary resources.
