TEPSE

School of Evangelism (TEPSE)

In the heart and on the street where knowledge and experience meet.™

Where are all the evangelists? Within the body of Christ, many desire to reach the lost but lack discipleship in this ministry. The Ezekiel Project School of Evangelism (TEPSE) was established to provide the in-depth training and discipleship needed for those wanting to deepen their commitment to Christ and to reach a lost world. The school does not exist for the purpose of granting degrees, but for raising up fervent workers and evangelists, zealous for the Lord’s work. The goal of TEPSE is to equip saints with the necessary skills and information to efficiently “do the work of an evangelist,” with a specific emphasis on open air evangelism.

TEPSE consists of two nine-month programs (T1 and T2) that combine the classroom teaching of God’s Word with practical experiences in evangelism.

 

 

T1 (First Year Program)

The coursework is no mere theory as students are required to participate in weekly evangelistic efforts at nearby college campuses and various ministry trips throughout the year. The students’ knowledge is put to the test as they “give an answer for the hope that is within them.” Experiencing evangelism first hand spurs students on to be better learners. This cycle of learning-doing-learning is a powerful method of making disciples. The fusion of information and experience helps students make the transition from the classroom to the world. TEPSE is not for the faint-hearted but for the serious minded Christian who wants to inculcate his beliefs with action.

Calendar

The TEPSE school year is divided into two semesters beginning with orientation in late August. Classes are conducted daily in addition to various ministry trips throughout the year. Upon commencement in May, students of the nine month program will have learned information crucial to defending the faith, as well as, the practice needed to develop them into experienced evangelists.

Cost

TEPSE operates on the New Testament principle of faith in God for direction in the ministry and provision of needs and expects students to do the same. Thus, the TEPSE program is offered as tuition free. However, some fees will be assessed to cover the cost of books, notes, and enrollment in the training seminars. In addition, the student will be expected to secure room and board for the school year on their own.
