For our Lay/Ministry Training we use currently material that was developed by Nehemiah Bible Institute in South Africa and was especially designed for ministry training in Southern Africa. The course was recently thoroughly revised and is now available through TEEM in Malawi. The course is offered through TEEM as TEE and not as a correspondence course. This means that individuals do not study the course by themselves, but every student will join a church-based tutorial group. Our TEE booklets typically have between 80-120 pages.
Costs: The course is generally free however students are expected to purchase their own copies of the material. The course booklets are internally subsidized in order to enable every Christian to fully participate.
