In response to the need of the local churches for pastorally oriented courses on the Bible, this training program is designed for all animators in the biblical pastoral ministry.

It’s purpose:

– to provide a deeper understanding of Scripture

The training program covers:

– Personal spiritual formation and renewal

– Updating knowledge of the Bible through modules on recent developments in biblical hermeneutics and the Church’s understanding of the Word of God.

– Pastoral skills for facilitating Bible Sharing, proclaiming the Word, bibliodrama, utilizing media, and using the Word in community building

– Training in developing simple biblical-pastoral programs/resources for small communities in the use of pedagogical methods to communicate the Word in different cultural and pastoral contexts.

The training program is conducted in collaboration with the South East Asian sub-region of the Catholic Biblical Federation.
