Asian Pacific Rim Theological Training Team

Come alongside our team as we strengthen existing churches and their leaders to become healthy enough to evangelize, disciple, equip and send out laborers to the harvest fields.

About Team

About Asian Pacific Rim Theological Training Team

Our team, the Theological Training Initiative (TTI) Team, equips pastors and church leaders who cannot attend traditional Bible college or seminary. Your gift will ensure that we can continue to offer a comprehensive theological education that enables these local leaders to shepherd their congregations more effectively, thereby fulfilling the mission to establish healthy, biblical churches across this region. We also partner with local churches and other organizations to train and send out local believers to share the gospel and plant churches in unchurched areas of Thailand through our Church Planting Internship program.

In addition to training, our team hosts meet physical needs in villages. During December through February, the temperatures in Northern Thailand drop for the cool season. In mountainous areas, many people die each year from hypothermia. However, more important than this physical death is the fact that most of these people will die without hearing the good news. Most people have never heard a clear presentation of the gospel in these unchurched sub-districts. Our team, alongside our national partner churches, travel to these unchurches villages, host Christmas parties to distribute blankets for those with the greatest need and share ultimate gift that was ever given, Jesus Christ.

Another method we use to build relationships in unreached areas is building F.A.I.T.H. gardens.  F.A.I.T.H. gardens are small, organic vegetable plots which provide vegetables for a family of six all year. F.A.I.T.H stands for Food Always In The Home. We teach our partners how to build and plant these gardens. Then the trained pastors and church leaders plant gardens in target villages, building relationships to share the gospel and see new churches planted.

We invite you to come alongside our ministries, partnering with us through financial gifts, and coming to serve alongside us as volunteers. God is transforming the lives of Thai men and women. Join Him and us in that work!
