“Titus Project is a three month Bible-teaching ministry which trains graduates of the School of Biblical Studies (SBS) as teachers, and sends them to places in desperate need of Bible teaching. The main goal of Titus Project is to equip the body of Christ with the “knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness” (Titus 1:1). We do this by preparing participants with three weeks of teacher-training, and sending them on two months of outreach, in small Bible-teaching teams.
Our participants are not referred to as “students,” because we see them as co-teachers with the same goal: to reach the nations with the Truth of God’s Word. During the training time, we equip participants by teaching them how to prepare, present, and illustrate Bible teachings. In addition, participants receive training on how to preach an inductive sermon, how to teach the inductive method of Bible study, and how to teach through a translator.
On outreach, we aim for each participant to teach between six and twelve hours per week. The goal of outreach is to pass Bible study tools on to pastors and lay leaders in the churches of the nations we go to, so the fruit of our ministry can be multiplied, as church leaders pass on skills to their congregations.
85% of churches around the world are led by pastors with no training. In the 10-40 window, there are over 5 million pastors with no access to any kind of formal Bible teaching. After studying through the entire Bible for nine months, SBS graduates have been given the incredible gift of Bible understanding and application in their own lives. What better way to give away the gift you have been given on SBS, than by being part of meeting the need for Bible teachers and Biblical training, around the world! His “word is a lamp to [our] feet and a light to [our] path” (Psalm 119:105).”
