Training Program Overview
The Titus Project Training Program is a 12 week ministry experience. The first 3 weeks is a focused training time where participants learn the basics of teaching and preaching followed by 9 weeks of outreach with a few days of debriefing at the end.
Purpose and History
An interview with Amy Stevens about how Titus Project started.
Training Time topics include:
- The Heart of a Bible Teacher
- Preparing and Presenting a Teaching
- Inductive Bible Study
- Learning Styles
- Preaching* Bible Overview
- Reaching Oral Communicators
- Teaching through a translator
- Team Dynamics and Ministering Cross-Culturally
The goal of outreach is to pass on the tools of Inductive Bible Study to pastors and church leaders so that they will be better equipped to teach and train their people in the Word of God. Teams usually teach Inductive Bible Study seminars through small books, Bible Overview, various requested books/topics based on needs of audience, and often get requests for teaching Effective Communication.
Outreach locations are selected prayerfully on the basis of need, relationship and potential for growth. We try to work repeatedly with the same people/locations in order to have a long-term impact.
During debriefing, teams have a chance to share about their experience, assess their growth, and process as a team and individually the things God did during this time.
As well, there are a number of books required reading. These usually include:
- "The Seven Laws of the Learner" (Wilkinson)
- "How To Read the Bible For All Its Worth" (Fee, Stuart)
- "Discipling Nations" (Miller)
- "Foreign to Familiar" (Lanier)
