MMM: June 2013

India-Flag-32A report from TMAI India

TMAI India has been training pastors in India and Myanmar since 2001. Their strategy is to see leaders and pastors raised up who will establish new churches or strengthen existing ones through the clear preaching of God’s Word. TMAI India currently trains 30 men in their three year M.Div. curriculum. They also train 60 pastors and leaders every year in their one- week Preacher’s Academy modules. Annually, 90 nationals go through their biblical training programs.

TMAI India is seeking to offer their men a digital library of study resources that includes key original language tools, exegetical helps, theological text books, and several key commentary sets. This collection would include over 700 resource books.

Besides providing their students all the texts that they will need in the classroom during their seminary training, it will also give them a portable study library that they can use in their pastoral ministries for the rest of their lives. In India, where theological resources are scarce, libraries are rare, and many pastors serve in under-developed areas, this is a vital need which will bless congregations all over the country for many years to come. TMAI India needs to raise $15,000 to be able to provide each of their students with this invaluable resource.

An exciting OPPORTUNITY!
This month’s TMAI matching grant challenge will be devoted to providing a digital library for Indian pastors, students, and alumni who would benefit greatly from theological resources, but cannot afford to buy their own materials. Up to $5,000 given this month towards the TMAI India Digital Library project will be matched by a generous donor.
