    Serious Training. Serious Students. Serious Calling.

    As a local church seminary, we must contribute to the great commission of the church through missional efforts. In fact, we view pastoral education as a missional endeavor both locally and globally. We seek to contribute to the mission of the church in two ways. The first is that we actively train men for church planting and missionary service through our programs at GBTS. The second is that we seek to partner with and assist in growth and development where the gospel is taking root internationally and the church is seeing growth. We view the missions endeavor is about the proclamation of the gospel but also the formation of churches. The apostle Paul took the gospel to many places and where it was received churches were established. In the pastoral epistles we see the command for pastors to be raised up and established in these churches. Furthermore, we see where there have been great revivals throughout church history we see the the church develop and the demand for leadership through pastoral ministry increase. Calvin’s Geneva Academy provides an example of inspiration for us as the academy was established primarily out of the great demand of pastors to fill the post at reformed or newly established churches.

    Toward this end we have partnered with churches in Ecuador and Cuba to support and assist the growing need for pastoral education throughout Ecuador and Latin America. We are working together to provide a doctrinally thorough education to men who the Lord seems to be calling into pastoral ministry as well as pastors who are requesting training in sound doctrine. Furthermore, the U.S has more educated ministers than we have pulpits while the developing church is in great need. From a strategic perspective it is key to have someone with theological education with boots on the ground. This is why we have sent one of our first graduates, Taylor Walls, as a missionary to serve in pastoral education as a residential instructor. Our partnership focuses on three initiatives.

    Escuela Pastoral (Pastors school)
    The Pastors School is a ministry of Sovereign Grace Church of Santo Domingo and is a pastoral education residency program in which students are supported to live, study and intern at the church full time. The goal of this program is to equip men with both sound doctrine and experience before being sent out as church planters.

    Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador
    We assist in curriculum design, academic development, and teaching which builds upon their diploma program in Reformed Baptist Theology in partnership with Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. The goal of CBSE is to provide a comprehensive pastoral education for students who show desire and aptitude after completing their previous studies.

    Legacy Baptist Press
    There is a great need for sound theological literature to be produced and translated into Spanish. For this purpose we have partnered with Legacy Baptist press to curate, translate and produce books for both the pastoral training endeavors as well as general doctrinal instruction for local churches.
