At the 2016 Global Proclamation Congress, we sat down with David Merck and talked about the mighty ways God has used the Training National Trainers Program in Brazil since training began in 2006. David Merck serves with Pregue La Palavra (Preach the Word), a ministry founded to expand TNT training in Brazil.
In the video, David mentions several keys to our ministry:
- LRI’s strong partnership with our Brazilian partners (PIBA).
- A laser-focus on transformation from God’s Word.
- Training that immerses students in the Bible.
- Equipped men passionate to pass this transformation to others (2 Timothy 2:2).
David also mentions the substance and scope of the movement:
- Training is expanding all over Brazil, even to remote villages in the Amazon region.
- Training is crossing borders and reaching pastors in Venezuela, Cuba, and Angola (Africa).
- Our partners are frequently approached to begin new training groups. With their growing team of trainers, they are able to respond to many calls for training.
