CEBIPAM is authorized to use the material of the BTCP (Bible Training Center for Pastors), a ministry that has worked with Biblical formation for nearly 30 years. This program has already been translated into 39 languages and is operating in more than 80 countries. See more at www.btcp.com.
The program was designed to train and equip ecclesiastical leadership in its local context. The goal is to understand and implement biblical knowledge and ministry practices.
The BTCP curriculum uses a biblical, systematic, portable, and comprehensive approach to providing the foundational equivalent of a good Bible college or seminary education. The training consists of interactive classroom lecture and discussion under the supervision of a qualified teacher.
The program is divided into 18 modules. Each module will last 30 hours (one week). We will be giving six modules per year (1 module every two months) for three years.
We count on the participation of students who come from regions close to Benjamim Constant in Brazil, but some of them travel long distances to participate in the training. This is only possible because, intentionally, we give the modules every two months, making it possible for the coming of the highest number of pastors and leaders.
Our teachers are people with ministerial experience and theological training and teach voluntarily. All of them are volunteers who are willing to give part of their time and resources to train leaders in the Amazon region.
During the three years of the program, the students will study the courses listed below:
