Theological educator in Tanzania

Could you help out at Nassa Theological College?

Background:

Despite the growth of the church, there are still a number of unreached people groups in Tanzania. AIM’s goal is to work together with national church partners to see the Gospel taken to those who have not yet heard.

Until 1989 the Africa Inland Church (AIC) had only two Bible Training Schools. The AIC in Tanzania (AICT) had to rely on colleges and institutions outside Tanzania. As the AICT grew, it became obvious that the church needed its own theological college to meet the growing need for leaders able to confront the many challenges it was facing. In January of 1989, Nassa Theological College (NTC) accepted eight students and began classes.  Today NTC continues to experience God’s blessing as he continues to cause it to grow and equip men and women with Biblical training and skills for ministry. Their vision is to help provide strong Biblical training and discipleship for national church leaders and missionaries who will strengthen the church and be involved with evangelism in Tanzania, and beyond.

FAQS

On almost every assignment you will need to learn another language and sometimes we recommend some language training before you leave. We recognise the value of building relationships and making disciples by communicating with people in their own language. This is especially true for those applying long term. Language learning is part of the TIMO programme, and when necessary, language school (in the UK, Africa, or elsewhere) is an option. In some positions and areas English might be enough to get by, but we strongly emphasise local language learning as a way to engage and reach local people with the gospel.

The easiest way is to fill out the contact us form on our website. Once we receive that form, we’ll be in touch to arrange a time to discuss together how the Lord is leading you.

We believe that God will provide for those he is leading into cross-cultural mission with AIM. The first step is to be praying, and to share your needs with your church and supporters, so that they can be praying with you that your needs would be met. Once your assignment is agreed and confirmed, a detailed budget is prepared for you which outlines the overall amount needed to be raised or pledged for your first term (2-3 years depending on location). You will need to have 100% of this amount pledged before you can travel.

The budget is shared with your sending church and we will work with you and your church to help you think about this further. Our European Based Orientation programme provides some training on partnership development, and we will provide other resources for you to share with potential supporters too, such as a prayer card, a page on our website with an online giving form and a standing order form (if needed).

Listen to a pastor talking about offering support:


 

Claudia Middendorf

A few months ago I led a Discovery Bible Study (DBS) group with a few interested people. After studying through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, the one participating pastor said to me, “Along the years I have taken many courses and been to Bible school for three years. I have learned to interpret the Bible. Only now have I learned to let it speak to me personally.”
