Bangkok, Thailand Christian Leader Summit – 2014
Christian pastors and seminary professors traveled from seven countries (Belarus, Cambodia, India, Nepal, Rwanda, Vietnam, Ukraine) to attend training for the BTMP (Biblical Training and Mentoring Program). (Also see post “Top Leaders Will Meet in Bangkok”) It was a wonderful time of training, sharing and bonding together.
These leaders are well known, highly educated and respected in their parts of the world. They are already preaching and utilizing the BMI curriculum to train their families, churches, Bible colleges and Christian leaders in their region of the world. The response from the leaders was exceptional as they consider this training invaluable.
“I have been deeply impacted by the materials of BMI. I have started teaching and preaching from it with amazing impact on people,” states Biswaratna Rai of India.
Joshua Nyugen of Vietnam writes,
“We were so grateful that you served us with the servant-leadership spirit and humble serving while staying in Bangkok and Hanoi. You showed us a wonderful model of discipleship life style like Jesus did. Thank you very much. You gave me a great privilege to be a part of BMI’s vision in training and mentoring Church leaders and pastors to expand the Kingdom of God through Southeast Asia. I understand that it is not easy but this is a part of the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, and we obey Him and trust He will be with us. Now, it is my desire to go to every country of Southeast Asia and share BTMP with whomever (church leaders) He brings across my life and hopefully God’s 2020 vision gave me to be completed by His grace.”
