We would like to let you know of an important free opportunity to make your courses more widely known throughout the evangelical world. The Evangelical Training Database is a searchable online database at www.trainforChrist.org. The project seeks to give information on all evangelical pastoral, theological and missionary training courses world-wide, so that people everywhere can more easily find the training they need to serve the Lord. Initially available in English and Spanish, it comes with the technology to make it accessible in all major languages. It presents a free opportunity to evangelical institutions to make their courses more widely known.
Dr Christopher Wright, formerly principal of All Nations Christian College and now International Director of the Langham Partnership is backing this project, and Geoff Tunnicliffe, CEO of the World Evangelical Alliance, has kindly said that he hopes to integrate it into the WEA website.
The project is run by the Missionary Training Service, a member of the UK Evangelical Missionary Alliance. We are cooperating with member bodies of the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE), and Trainers of Pastors International (TOPIC).
The database is now open for all evangelical institutions to register as Course Providers at www.trainforChrist.org. Please choose your language and click on “Training Provider Registration”. During the process of registration please note the evangelical associations to which your institution belongs so that searches specifying these will identify your courses. You will receive a password by e-mail through which you will be able to post details of your courses – which you will be able to modify at any time.
