"We must do something!

Expect great things from God! Attempt great things for God!" -- William Carey,

In January 2005, Wil taught the first in a series of fifteen courses to begin the new Seminary Extension program in Danli, Honduras. In April 2005 we  baptized new believers in a river near Danli, and saw God open new doors of ministry.  In October we organized the New Mission in Zapotillo. At the same time one of our students started seven home Bible studies in the Las Acacias subdivision of Danli. As the missions continued to grow it became obvious that for sustained growth we needed to build a building for each. Abide in Christ and Baptist churches in Arkansas and Mississippi joined together to construct a permanent place of worship for these two missions that have developed out of this ministry. Two New Missions Completed in Honduras. The ministry has continued to grow and is now presenting Evangelism Workshops and conferences in Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru and Ecuador. Go this link for the latest mission updates Missions Index.

Pray for the Lord's guidance as we seek to provide a cost effective, high quality, professional education experience for rural pastors, evangelists and church workers in these countries. These humble, financially deprived, dedicated servants of the Lord have had little, if any, formal training at a Bible college or seminary level. 

Our goal is to provide Bible institute level courses to train rural pastors, evangelists and church leaders with a basic knowledge and skills necessary to effectively carry out their biblical responsibilities. We do not want to duplicate programs already offered in the large cities. Our target group are men called of God who have never had an opportunity to study the Bible and effective church leadership materials in a formal setting. Most rural pastors have less than a high school education.

Ephesians 4:11-12 is the goal of this ministry of Bible education by extension.

The student will receive free of charge high quality well written textbooks in ten basic areas of church planting. The material is presented from historical mainstream conservative, evangelical, Bible-centered Christian theology. 

The curriculum consists of the following fifteen courses:

  • Bible Study Methods/Interpretation
  • Old Testament Survey
  • New Testament Survey
  • Bible Doctrine Survey
  • Personal Spiritual Life
  • Church Ministry/Administration/Education
  • Teaching Principles/Methods
  • Church History
  • Missions/Evangelism/Discipleship
  • Preaching Bible Messages and Pastoral Ministry (for church leaders Communication Biblical Messages)
  • Intensive courses on various Books of the Bible

At the end of these courses the student will have received an ongoing "working resource/research library." This material will provide the pastor with the necessary tools and biblical materials from which to preach and teach effectively. The Bible is the required curriculum content.

Rural pastors in the third world cannot take off three or four years to obtain a Bible education and prepare for more effective ministries. It is an impossible financial goal for families that live in poverty. Churches pay their pastors hardly anything.  Pastors serve out of love for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, we are seeking to deliver a minimum of ten basic courses free of charge to these pastors. They will be taught by pastors with excellent academic and pastoral experiences. Teachers from the U. S. will be asked to trust the Lord to provide for their own way to go and teach one of our courses for one week. The classes run from Monday through Friday and consist of 40-50 hours of classroom participation. The student must also spend another 30 hours in review, assignments and assimilation of the course content and skills.

To reduce costs we will not build buildings in these countries, but operate out of existing churches or church assembly grounds. We have pastors and laymen who are committed to theological education by extension for rural pastors who will coordinate the work and provide logistics in Honduras.

Please remember Abide in Christ in your daily prayers.

Rejoicing in Christ,
