The mission of CCI is to glorify God by equipping Christ followers globally with comprehensive training for effective ministry.
The purpose of the Teacher Training Workshop is to instill in the participants a biblical philosophy of leadership development and to effectively equip them to use the BTCP concept & curriculum. Completion of the Teacher Training Workshop is required for implementing the BTCP concept and curriculum.
Here is the schedule for the workshop:
Friday, 6:00-9:00 PM, August 9

This workshop is interactive. There is teaching and participation. On Saturday, each participant will have the opportunity to teach 2-3 pages of one of the training manuals.
The Bible Training Centre for Pastors (BTCP) is both a concept and curriculum. The concept is local church based training that is affordable, accessible, and reproducible. The training is based upon a philosophy of discipleship relationships, not academic information, where the trainer becomes a model based upon 2 Timothy 2:1-2 for the people being trained so that they acquire the ministry skills, character, and Bible knowledge for effective ministry. The curriculum consists of 10 core courses, covering 520 in-class hours focused on equipping a pastor or leader in how to use the Word of God in one's life and ministry. Through the training and hands' on involvement in the local church, the student is equipped for life long service.
The courses include:
Bible Study Methods and Rules of Interpretation (40 hours)
Old Testament Survey (60 hours)
New Testament Survey (60 hours)
Preaching Biblical Messages and Pastoral Ministry (60 hours)

When & Where
Dr. David Nelson
Crossing Cultures International is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to glorify God by equipping Christ followers with comprehensive training for effective ministry. CCI currently serves in 20 countries with 4,400 pastors and church leaders in training. Our concept is a discipleship relationship where trainers model Christlikeness and guide other leaders through the process of acquiring the ministry skills, Bible knowledge, and character to serve effectively. The training is affordable, local church based, reproducible, and effective to produce Christlike servants who train and equip Christlike servants. The training consists of basic seminary courses compiling over 550 hours of in class training. Integrated into the training is actual ministry service at the same time of the training. Rather than a storage tank approach where learners gain knowledge and later serve, the training and service go hand in hand. CCI's concept is modeled after Jesus' method of training the 12 disciples and the discipleship relationship modeled by Paul and Timothy (2 Tim. 2:1-2). CCI believes that the role of godly servants is outlined in Ephesians 4:11-16. Instead of doing all the work of the ministry as is seen in many Western churches, godly servants instead equip others to do the work of the ministry. Most churches do not have a plan, a budget, a program, or personnel dedicated to this work. But by partnering with CCI, local churches can develop a simple, yet effective plan in equipping emerging leaders in the local church.
