Asia -Pastoral Training of Asia - Jim & Shonda Davis
Pastoral Training of Asia (PTA) is a Calvary Chapel Affiliated Mission Organization serving in Southeast Asia.
Our motto expresses our ministry... "MINISTERING TO MINISTERS".
We serve the Servers and help the Helpers. We do this by developing and assisting National Leadership. The greatest way we help the church grow on the mission field is to help the Pastors and church leaders. In turn, they can better minister to their congregations and reach out to the lost.
We achieve this by conducting practical, biblical workshops and providing booklets, tracts and other printed materials. We bring the training to them instead of bringing them to a Bible School. This is called Theological Education by Extension (TEE) or Bible Education by Extension (BEE).
Our training includes; Inductive Method of Bible Study, Evangelism & Discipleship, Marriage & Family Life and Sunday School Teacher Training. All of this is without charge as provided by our supporters. Thousands have been helped, yet thousands more are still in need. Many Pastors do not even own a Bible dictionary.
Pastoral Training Seminars
Most of the pastors in the rural areas live in extreme poverty. They cannot afford to travel to major educational centers for pastoral training. So PTA travels to them, which is cost effective and has the potential to reach the most pastors & workers.
PTA teams travel to these remote areas and conduct week-long seminars. Typically, 60 to 80 pastors and leaders travel as much as 50 miles to attend. The seminars are free, and PTA supplies food, housing, and printed material. Thousands have benefited from these seminars, and they continue to be in great demand. Types of seminars taught include Inductive method of Bible study, Evangelism and Discipleship Training, Marriage and Family Life, Leadership Training and Sunday School Teacher Training
Street Children's Ministry
Teaching and feeding the poor children from the slum areas is a growing ministry of PTA. Children gather and are taught the Word of God and are fed. These children grow up and serve the Lord.
Medical Outreach Teams
Hundreds will come for free medical attention and free medicine. Our policy is to pray for each one. Many receive Christ and are given follow-up material printed on our own PTA Print Shop.
Reaching out to young people with the Gospel by way of music, educational tutoring, medical care and Bible Study.
PTA Print Shop
This exciting ministry has printed over 6 million tracts, new believer booklets and discipleship materials. These materials are given free to the Asian churches and Pastors.
Theological books, videos, DVD's, Sunday school materials, etc. are made available to Pastors and churches from PTA's mission center located in Dumaguete City, Philippines.
