Review: EBTC graduation weekends

„Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 29 For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me“ ~ Colossians 1:28-29

Paul’s desire was to present everyone mature in Christ. We share this desire by equipping men and women with tools that help them to understand and exegete God’s Word in a gainful manner.

Over the past three weekends we had our annual graduation services for each of our locations – Berlin, Zürich and Rheinland. It was a very blessed time with many encouraging testimonies from students (e.g. here). In their graduation charges Christian Andresen (Berlin), Theo Friesen (Rheinland) and Benedikt Peters (Zürich) reminded the students of their essential dependence on Jesus Christ.

This year we could graduate 157 students from 10 different classes:

Here are some impressions from the graduations:

We thank God that we were again able to graduate more students than the previous year. Some of the students will continue in other courses at the EBTC. We are very thankful this also and are looking forward to take on this great responsibility.

We want to ask you to pray for these graduates. Please pray for strength and discipline for those that continue their education with us. Also pray that all graduates will be able to implement what they have learned here in their local churches. We all need God’s helping hand in this.

In case you are interested in studying with us take a look at our website. We offer programs starting from the Bible Survey up to different Master Programs.

It is our aim to equip faithful men for the ministry (2. Tim. 2:2).
