The training department of GEMS organized the course and the participants were from GEMS fields of Bihar, Jharkhand and from another mission of West Bengal.
The first semester was conducted from 6thto 17th March 2017 and faculties from Elim & RTC, U.K. took classes. Rev. Jamys Carter took sessions and did an overview of Old Testament. Dr. Keith Warrington did sessions on the Synoptic Gospels. Rev. Michael Reid showed God, the Father and helped the participants to learn His character and mission.
The classes helped the participants to gain a better understanding of the books of the Bible and the character and mission of God.
Pray for all the participants of the RTC course that this learning may equip them to understand the Bible in a better way so as to grow deeper in their relationship with God and to be effective in their teaching of the Word. Pray also for the Elim-RTC faculties and the organizing team.
