Theodemy was conceived in 2013 underneath a pitch black Malawian sky.
Two men sat on the hard cement floor of a humble, furniture-less, rural hut. The brave orange flame of the remaining stub of candle, like a miniature sword, struck repeatedly at the darkness that threatened to engulf the pages of the old, worn Bible. I spent two nights in that hut giving Vincent a crash course on revelation history: Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. Next, we rushed on to church administration and leadership. Time was up and I had to return home to South Africa.
Theodemy is the continuation and extension of those two nights. Theodemy exists to help the thousands of Vincents in Africa, and the rest of the world, who could never afford to go to a seminary. Instead, the purpose of Theodemy is to have seminary quality training come to them!
Theodemy is the extension of that brave flame, fighting off the dark assault on the truth, by illuminating the treasures of the Bible. We aim to equip light-bearers who will shine in dark places.
Built for you
Your ministerial education is important to you. You want your ministry to be characterised by fruitfulness, faithfulness and relevance. We are familiar with the many challenges of ministry today.
Your growth and effectiveness in ministry depend on quality training. That explains why Team Theodemy requires that our instructors are both experienced and qualified. Highly experienced pastors and academically qualified teachers are what you deserve and exactly what you get from Team Theodemy. The bottom line for our contributors is this:
Our instructors care about your success as a minister.
They are passionate about the subjects they teach. They know what ministry demands. They know what you feel as minister, and as a student. Sometimes life happens, despite how balanced we try to live it. That is why we teach; that is why we are building Theodemy.
This is why we work tirelessly to improve the platform–so that your effectiveness in ministry is maximized, remember …
We built it for you.
Show yourself approved. Study! And never stop!
In 2 Timothy 2:15 the verb a present imperative active: “Always be studying!” or “Keep on studying!”
Vincent never saw the inside of a Bible school. He probably never will. Even if he could, how would he provide for his growing family? He cannot leave them behind in order to go and study outside of his village. The training he is so hungry for can now come to him! This is elegantly possible with Theodemy.
It is now possible to maintain your ministerial ministerial edge; to stay sharp. You can keep studying. Now, you can learn with the best instructors as your teachers wherever you are. Your time, your call at a price any diligent student can afford.
Technology offers exciting opportunities to bring LIFELONG ministry skills training right to your phone. But what about those without access to the internet or who do not own a smart phone? While it is impossible to go to every village in every part of the world, proceeds from the course fees enable us to offer on site training at least once a year.
In December 2015, Dr. Aldred Genade taught exegesis to adult students in Kenya. More opportunities abound. Requests for training are coming in from Kenya, Congo, Tanzania, Burundi and Zambia. Our list is filling up fast.
