Daniel L. Sonnenberg, Regional Director for Timothy Two Project International in Latin America
I taught Timothy Two’s Workshop 1, “Knowing God,” with a rather large group of pastors and ministry leaders of churches in the Baptist Federation of El Salvador in the city of Cojutepeque during the week of September 6.
At the end of the week, those who participated in the workshop during the previous week in San Miguel joined us for the last day so we were able to get a picture of both groups combined.
Our plan for Workshop 2 is to teach both groups combined in Cojutepeque during January 2022. The workshop coordinator for these groups is Jaime Wilfredo Pena and the interpreter is Herbert Hernandez Portan.
Timothy Two Project International (TTPI) exists to serve a critical need around the world. We are committed to equipping and training indigenous pastors and ministry leaders with the essential truths of the Christian faith so they can train others. This way, the mandate from Christ in the Great Commission to “make disciples” can be accomplished in areas of the world where there is little or no formal biblical or theological training available.
What sets TTPI apart is the Philosophy of Ministry we use. We travel to cities and villages where pastors need training, but cannot leave their homes and families to go to a Bible College. The Lord raises up a host pastor, who invites 8-12 key pastors in the area to a workshop. This interactive training week enables local pastors to receive a foundation for their faith. TTPI is based upon 2 Timothy 2:2, “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” When a pastor finishes a TTPI workshop, he leaves with all of our material in his own language, plus notes he has taken from the dialogue we use to help transfer biblical truths from the head to the heart. He is ready to use this same material to train others. All of our theology is based upon the Westminster Confession of Faith.
