On June 3, 2012, seven group members from the Jesus Assembly in Erdenet graduated from the Certificate in Christian Ministry program. Here is what one of them shared:
‘Greetings to you all. My name is Doljin, I am 47 years old, and a member of the Jesus Assembly in Orkhon province. I am so happy to be able to tell you about the wonderful opportunity that the Lord opened in my life through TEE. Through this training, anyone can study in an international Bible School without leaving their work, family, business or ministry for only the price of the text books. This kind of training suited me very well. I found that I was not just gaining more information, but through a combination of home study, group discussions and practical assignments, I was being changed in mind, spirit and body as well. My character and my relationships were impacted, and I have become more mature. The training has delivered a great deal.
In 2005, I began to study the Foundation level TEE course Abundant Life. We looked at becoming a child of God, repentance, prayer, the study of God’s Word, and the life of obedience. We looked at the church, and ministry, and learnt so much about the life of faith. And this was not all: we shared our joys and sorrows with the group facilitator, and with her support and help, group members became a united team.
The Certificate program has truly helped me to find life’s purpose and gain a vision, filling me with joy and peace. It is so effective in encouraging service to others, and growth in discipleship and maturity.
I really want to give the glory to God for the way that the six-part series covering the Life of Christ, together with other courses, have been effective in training disciples who can disciple others, and who can minister in church and society. The three courses on Paul’s Life and Letters helped us to study mission, and then we went on a short-term mission trip to the country to the south of Mongolia. The course that I found the most interesting and helpful was the course on Christian Family Life.
I would really like to encourage many, many Christian brothers and sisters to find blessing through this programme.
A big thank you to the leadership and training coordinators, together with those who translated these courses, for making them available in the Mongolian language. May God bless you all. Amen.
