At the Tyndale Intercultural Ministries (TIM) Centre
Tyndale Intercultural Ministries (TIM) Centre’s Foundations in Missional Ministry & Church Leadership Diploma, was introduced in October 2010.
One of the exciting developments in contemporary church planting in the Canadian context is the growth of immigrant churches in urban cities like Toronto. As God continues to bring Spirit-filled Christians from the non-western world to Canada, we can expect to see the exciting new church-planting models, which do not fit the typical Canadian paradigm.
One of the challenges facing immigrant church leaders, is how to find training that is accessible, affordable, and recognized for credentialing leaders to serve in pastoral ministry within their church affiliation. The Foundations in Missional Ministry & Church Leadership will train immigrant church leaders to be certified by the denominations partnering with the TIM Centre.
The Diaspora Leaders training has two distinct dimensions. First, there will be basic foundation courses related to Bible Interpretation, OT-NT Survey, Basic Bible Doctrines, and Introduction to Pastoral Ministry. Second, the missional courses will be part of the Forge –Toronto “ethos”. For more information on the ethos, see the core values tab. For more information on the courses, see the curriculum tab.
