Teaching opportunities for WRF members in Manila and Myanmar.

Dear Sam,

I wanted to alert you and the World Reformed Fellowship about a couple of opportunities to serve by teaching in Southeast Asia. While lodging and meals would be provided, airfare would be the responsibility of whomever would answer these calls to serve.

First, PTS (Presbyterian Theological Seminary) in Manila is seeking someone to teach a one-week intensive course on Reformed Theology in May of this year (dates are flexible). They are also looking for someone to teach "Contemporary Issues and Reformed Theology" and "Mission and Evangelism in the Reformed Tradition" in the near future. The new president of PTS, Dr. Laurence Gatawa, desires PTS, which trains pastors for the 300+ churches of the Presbyterian Church in the Philippines, to be known as a solidly Reformed institution and, to this end, he is hoping to encourage visiting professors.

Second, a new master's level seminary, Myanmar Theological Seminary, is being formed in Yangon from several smaller Reformed denominations in that country. Most of these denominations have their own Bible colleges, but not graduate level institutions. A group of leaders from different denominations is hoping that their Bible colleges can all "feed" students and prospective pastors into this new, autonomous seminary. I am assisting them in organizing and developing that institution. To that end, we are looking for visiting scholars to teach week-long intensive courses in every area of a typical master's level curriculum (Bible, theology, pastoral theology, etc.). The first module would likely be scheduled for August or September of this year, with others to be scheduled roughly every 3 months.

The mission of each of these schools aligns well with the objectives of the WRF. If anyone is interested in serving in these capacities, they may contact me via email at steve@timothytwo.org
