The purpose of training, which was hosted by AMD, was to discuss how current and future training programs of these ministries might integrate into the educational initiatives of the church, so that participants might be able to receive academic credit toward certificates or degree programs in the near future.
On Monday, November 13, national overseers and representatives from nine nations of South America gathered in Santiago, Chile to explore educational opportunities available to ministers and leaders through the Church of God of Prophecy’s Accredited Ministry Development (AMD) partnerships.
«Este es el principio de un gran proceso que preparará a más de 1,000 pastores en Sudamérica», dijo Gabriel Vidal, presbítero general de Sudamérica. «Creo que esta iniciativa cambiará el curso de la iglesia en Sudamérica».
A pioneering event concludes today as over fifty students and ten national overseers leave the first-ever international diploma cohort being offering by the Church of God of Prophecy’s Accredited Ministry Development, in collaboration with the Center for Latino Studies (CLS) at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary (PTS).
