Twenty-seven students graduated from the Mathetis Bible School in Constanța, Romania on Sunday 21st May. TEN CEO, Gerry Partridge and TEN Ambassador, Terry Wood were privileged to attend the ceremony. This school was set up by the local Pentecostal churches to train the next generation of church leaders and to equip them for church planting in the areas around Constanța, where many towns and villages have no evangelical presence at all. The students, including eight women, came from a variety of backgrounds and each made significant sacrifices to find the time over a two-year period to attend the training on alternate Saturdays, as well as personal study and writing essays.
The Bible School is the vision of TEN partners, Pastor Beni Micle and his wife Ancuta. They are hoping for another intake starting in the Autumn 2017. TEN were pleased to be able to provide some financial assistance for this first intake of students thanks to the generosity of TEN supporters.
