Missions Mobilization Memo – July 2014

philippines-flag-32A report from the Philippines
The Expositor’s Academy

The Expositor’s Academy (TEA) in the Philippines trains believers to proclaim God’s Word. It helps ground churches by providing trained teachers who can establish a foundation of clear Bible exposition. Church by church, TEA is equipping churches to be lighthouses for God’s truth throughout the country.

For four years, TEA has operated out of Church of the Triumphant Christ. The church has graciously allowed TEA to use the upstairs worship center as a place to hold classes. As TEA’s graduates have made their way into churches, and as those churches have tasted the fruit of leaders and teachers who have been trained to rightly divide the Word, interest in what TEA offers has spiked. Churches in the Philippines are filled with people who are hungry for God’s Word, and through TEA, believers are being trained to feed them.

A PRACTICAL NEED
As the training center has grown, so too has its need for a larger meeting space. Leaders at TEA have drawn up plans to convert the smaller downstairs rooms in the church into one large room that can be used to teach larger classes. Currently, TEA classes can fit 40-50 students. With the renovation, that number will more than double.

The remodeled downstairs classroom will be designed specifically to suit TEA’s purpose with amphitheater style seating, desks, built-in projector and teaching desk. This will create a better learning and teaching environment and it will also allow TEA to hold multiple classes at the same time. Moreover, it will strengthen TEA’s relationship with the local church and increase the visibility and standing of the training ministry in the eyes of the community and among perspective students.

The remodel will allow TEA to house residential students, hold multiple classes, as well as several preaching labs at the same time. In addition, the remodeled training center will also be able to offer students a modest library for research and sermon preparation with computers and a suitable environment in which to study.
