Training Christian Leaders in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Caucasus
For decades Christians, churches and pastors has been repressed, intimidated and sometimes violently persecuted throughout Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Caucasus. However, this strategy has failed to stop the Gospel from spreading the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. We regularly receive reports about new believers throughout our large and diverse region.
Who will lead these new believers?
Where are the pastors to shepherd the flock of new believers?
Who will train the pastors to teach the scriptures to the new believers?
Tavriski Christian Institute (TCI) stands prepared to train and equip Christian leaders throughout Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus. TCI is uniquely positioned with geographic and logistical access to areas that are now opening up to the Gospel message. Equally important, TCI is well positioned to continue outreach into areas that are beginning to close to the Gospel. For each area, our work has immediate needs.
TCI invests in training Christian leaders that:
- Effectively integrate into their culture and are of strong influence
- Are not free to leave their country and study abroad — TCI responds with flexible programming brought to the Christian leaders region
- Have limited access to education
- Now include women – The freedom for women to study the scriptures was not allowed until the 21st century. TCI is pleased to help women realize this dream.
