One of our partners, MOCLAM, is involved providing high level theological training to pastors in a “limited access”* Latin American country. This training happens at multiple locations using various models according to local conditions.
One graduate of the MOCLAM program is in the process of establishing a regional training centre in his church, where he and other graduates can pass on what they have learnt through their studies.
This graduate aims to run classes one day per week, 9am – 4pm, with a one hour break for lunch. Students will study one subject in the morning, and another in the afternoon. Each subject will take ten weeks to complete at which time all participants will be required to sit the MOCLAM exam. Under this system, students will complete 8 subjects per year. It is expected 25-30 will begin later in 2014.
Your gift of $1,300 will allow LAC to pay the costs associated for an entire year of MOCLAM courses in this location, including:
- Travel costs of the tutors
- Materials for 25-30 participating pastors and leaders
- Lunches for 25-30 participants each class day
- Travel assistance for remotely located participants.
*A note about limited access countries.
Our partner organisation MOCLAM is involved in theological education programs in several countries where the freedoms of Christians and/or churches are restricted. For this reason, specific location and country details are not provided.
