Educational Leaders Convene for Triennial Meeting
By Rod Boyd

Forty international leaders from 17 Spanish-speaking countries convened for the triennial meeting of the Latin American Christian Education Ministries, September 4-7 in Managua, Nicaragua. I have the privilege of serving on the educational ministries administrative committee as Advisor to the Spanish-speaking Bible schools.

2006 SEC Trienal

The administrative committee is comprised of ministry leaders and regional representatives. In addition to the administrative committee members, each country is allowed to send one educational representative plus the superintendent. Eight General Superintendents attended.

2006 SEC TrienalAs directors of the Resource and Advisory Center for Latin American Bible Schools, we depend upon the cooperation and coordination of these international leaders. We are honored to count them as friends. Our fellowship is so rich!

The meetings are a mix of reports, business and information. The administrative committee met on Monday morning to finalize the meeting agenda and consider last-minute changes in nominees. The Resource and Advisory Center were presented two significant initiatives.
First, the group approved the creation of a new Certification Program for Professors and Administrative Personnel for our Bible schools, under the direction of our ministry.

2006 SEC TrienalConsiderable work has been done to put together a series of 10 workshops that will serve as the core for certifying professors and administrative personnel. An additional 4 workshops will be developed each year to provide for continuing education for our professors. The national Bible school directors in each country will develop these workshops and become the first “trainers.”

Second, the group requested that the Basic Plan that outlines the Bible school curriculum be reviewed to consider current needs and program flexibility. The asked the Resource and Advisory Center to assist with this evaluation.

The Resource and Advisory Center will be hosting a Leaders’ Dialogue in Panama in March of 2007 where both the certification program and Basic Plan evaluation will be considered.

Thank you for praying for our ministry in the Resource and Advisory Center as we provide assistance to the 900 Bible schools and extension sites throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
