Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?”… Acts 8:30-31
Ever since we started our education at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary-Charlotte, we have been gaining a deep sense of the importance of theological training. Coming from an Eastern European country, we always took our own theological formation as an incredible gift from God and a privilege, but that is not all. With the privilege came also a deep sense of responsibility. In the United States there are hundreds of Bible colleges and seminaries where pastors, church leaders, missionaries, and Christian counselors are trained for service in the kingdom of God. Unfortunately, in most parts of the world this is not the case. We sensed a calling from God to respond to the need we see in other countries where even a small Bible college may be a luxury or where well-educated professors would rarely go. Teaching others and training them in the Word of God has already been part of our ministry for the last several years, but we want to take the responsibility and extend our teaching to people who will hardly have the chance to come to and study in the United States or another country.
Our future plans include teaching in Bible colleges or church-based Bible schools in Eastern Europe and other countries. We have already begun a process of exploration and establishing initial contact with such educational institutions.
