Titus Project

Overview

Titus Project at YWAM Muizenberg is a three-month program designed to equip School of Biblical Studies graduates to become teachers and to send them to places which are in desperate need of Bible teaching. Our goal is to equip the church in Africa with tools for studying the Bible for themselves. We target places with limited access to Bible teaching. Our goal is that our program participants will become life-long Bible teachers and continue to equip the church wherever they go, whether back home, or into long-term missions. The first three weeks are focused on training here in Muizenberg, South Africa. The next seven weeks are spent on outreach in small teams, focused on Bible teaching. The final week is spent debriefing.

What to expect

 

During the first three weeks you’ll be part of the training phase, in which students learn how to prepare, present and illustrate Bible teachings. Each participant will teach and be evaluated three times during their training phase. While on outreach, team-mates will evaluate each other in order to continue their growth. The church in Africa needs you!

How does it look like?

Training Phase | 3 weeks | Muizenberg

CLASS TIME: 18 hours/week
There are three weeks of intense training on how to teach the Bible in an Outreach context. The training phase is tough, but it needs to be in order to prepare our students for outreach where they may have to prepare on short notice. Classes are held every morning and some afternoons.

PARTICIPANT PRACTICE TEACHINGS: 10 hours/week
Each participant will teach four times during the three weeks of training and they will be evaluated on their strengths and weaknesses. All practice teachings are first modelled by the staff.

BOOK READING AND DISCUSSIONS: 10 hours/week
Three books are part of our curriculum. They are read individually and then discussed in a group setting.

PRAYER, WORSHIP, INTERCESSION: 3 hours/week
At least 3 hours per week will be set apart for prayer and worship.

OUTREACH TEAM MEETINGS: 3 hours/week
Teams meet to pray and prepare for outreach.

Outreach Phase | 8 weeks (plus 1 week Debrief)

The goal of outreach is to pass on the tools of Inductive Bible Study to pastors so that they will be better equipped to teach their congregations. As a School we have felt for years that God has called us to reach out and invest in Africa. This is why all of our outreaches are on this continent. There are two major topics which we teach on our outreaches, the first one being “The Inductive Method through the book of Philemon”. Many countries and tribes have been ripped apart by war. And as a School we have seen over and over again how God has used this teaching to bring about forgiveness, reconciliation, and healing amongst the people through this small book. The second major teaching we do is “Bible Overview” which conveys the complete story of God’s redemption and faithfulness to His promises made to mankind which are all fulfilled in and through Jesus.

For each Titus Project, we pray about the outreach locations. We always prioritise giving back to South Africa, as this is the country where our work is based. Depending on the number of students on the School, we may then also go to other countries within Africa. Past outreach locations include: Togo, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa, Malawi and others.
