The Ambassador Institute is a ministry of the World Missions department.
Our mission is to come alongside church bodies who desire to study
God's Word and assist them in developing solid, biblical, and
theological curriculum to train their leaders/pastors.
Training people within their own country has always been
a part of the ministry of World Missions. The seminary in Brazil,
training seminars in several countries, and the Spanish Sunday School
material are examples. The Ambassador Institute wants to continue that
emphasis and strengthen it by helping leaders give theological education
to the church leaders in their
own language from the very beginning. When students are able to study at
home in their own culture there are many benefits including: keeping
the family together, continuing their vocations, leading their churches
and the daily practice of the courses they have studied.
The program must be designed with the end in mind as it answers these three questions.
- What must the students know?
- What must the student develop in their character?
- What must the student be able to do in ministry when they are finished?
Fall 2013 Inquiry
Our goal is to offer three levels of training: certificate, diploma and degree.
The training must be reproducible.
It must have the respect of the community and country.
Discipleship must be a part of the teaching process.
The training began in Uganda in February of 2009 and the first graduation of 20 students was celebrated in
January 2011. In India, the training began in June 2009. Their first
graduation of the oral curriculum will be in January 2012. In Brazil,
the first classes started in March of 2011 with 13 students. Spanish and
Russian translations are also in process.
Please consider partnering with us both prayerfully and financially as we minister internationally.
