Last Saturday, November 19th, we were thrilled to celebrate and mark the 21st Graduation of our theological school, Messiah Theological Institute (MTI). We had 27 graduates completing the training that began back in April. It was a day full of celebration, congratulations, singing, dancing, and joy. And it marked the completion of these students commitment. It was a really good day!
MTI focuses on teaching and training students from different churches so that they can better lead, teach, and disciple others in their communities. We teach classes on practical ministry tools and application, basic Bible study principles, and specific Biblical texts. These classes try to help students not only understand what God’s Word teaches us, but also how those truths apply to everyday living and ministry. And we spend time each session focusing on the spiritual growth of each student, discipling them in their own walk with the Lord. Our expectation and challenge to them is for them to take the Lord’s Commission seriously…
“To make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”Matthew 28:19-20
Here is a video of how students feel about MTI and what the Lord has shown them through this ministry…
We are thankful for all of the supporters who make MTI classes, training, and disciplemaking possible. Even if you weren’t able to join us for this graduation, please know that you are on our hearts and minds and we want to express an abundance of appreciation to you! THANK YOU!
