Who are the women in BTCL?
Women of different ages, backgrounds, denominations, and life experiences who want training for ministry (local and international). The class time emphasizes studying as an act of worship, learning in community, and servant-leadership with the goal of equipping women to pass on what they are learning (whether as a mentor, small group leader, or ministering in a cross-cultural context).
What would I be doing in BTCL?
Our women learn together in small groups and are shepherded and mentored by BTCL leaders throughout the two year program. Every semester, class members participate in local service projects together. Study of the BTCP curriculum, including Bible reading, will require 5 to 8 hours outside of class.
