TEE in Asia


The church in Asia is growing with unprecedented speed, raising new challenges in the realm of effective, contextualized discipleship. Can this growing church nurture biblical training that is relevant to the contexts, communities, and livelihoods of its believers?

In this immensely relevant book, the Increase Association shares its practical wisdom on how to utilize Theological Education by Extension as “Tools to Equip and Empower” all believers for kingdom work. TEE in Asia provides a foundational understanding of TEE’s history, theological underpinnings, and methodology, while casting a vision for the expanding role of TEE in the twenty-first century. Filled with testimonies from church communities throughout Asia, this book provides concrete examples of TEE’s effectiveness in a wide variety of contexts and the innovative work of the Increase Association which connects, strengthens, and represents the national TEE movements. It invites the reader to partner with God’s work through prayer and tangible action.
