Summary: At the conclusion of 2019, by God’s grace, we will have taught a total of 46 workshops in 10 countries over the past four years, providing theological education to 219 pastors and ministry leaders in Latin America who have no access to such training. Each workshop trains a group of 10-15 participants. Every participant receives a printed workbook in their own language. These workbooks contain the entire text, illustrations, review questions and application questions that they can use for further study and for teaching others in their own church, small group or mission. Participants also receive a digital file of each workbook so that they can make fresh copies for their students.

Belize Pastors and Ministry Leaders Receive Timothy Two Certificates in Biblical and Theological Foundations

Timothy Two Project International: Latin America Region

by Daniel L. Sonnenberg

Independence, Belize. Seven pastors and ministry leaders representing four local churches completed the fourth and final workshop this week and received Certificates in Biblical and Theological Foundations from Timothy Two Project International.

Workshop participants (from left) Chun, Kohl, Paquiul, De La Rosa, Peters, Rivas and Ac with their certificates

Pastor Leonel De La Rosa of Bella Vista, Abraham Ac of Medina Bank, and Pastor Epifanio Chun, Jr., Erla Paquiul, Thelma V. Peters, Mary Pearl Rivas and Steve Kohl of Independence have completed the “Growing in Grace” series of workshops.

In this series, they studied and discussed the Biblical doctrines of God, man, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and salvation. In addition, they investigated the Bible’s teachings in practical theology concerning relationships, social issues and personal issues as well as service to God in the church, the community and the world.

They are now equipped to teach these workshops to others within their churches, communities and surrounding regions. In addition to teaching these workshops in their own churches, Pastor Chun, Jr. hopes to teach ministry leaders in more southern parts of Belize, and Pastor De La Rosa hopes to teach other pastors in neighboring Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

This series of workshops was taught by Timothy Two Instructor and Latin America Regional Director, Rev. Dan Sonnenberg, was coordinated by missionary Steve Kohl and held at Global Outreach Mission’s Dental Clinic.
