Since 2004, TWIO has had tremendous success reaching the indigenous pastors, teachers and church leaders in the global south by presenting pastors conferences. Our unique format of week-long conferences has proven to be extremely effective. Every plenary session is taught by an instructor holding a PhD and possessing expertise in inductive bible study. Immediately following each plenary session the attendees are divided into small groups where trained Mentors facilitate discussions of what was taught. These small group conversations allow the attendees to solidify their understanding of what they learned as well as to develop relationships between one another and their Mentor. By the end of the week Mentors can identify the outstanding pastors or church leaders in their small group who are then considered to be possible TWIO Champions who are eligible to receive a scholarship to Asbury Theological Seminary and eventually head a TWIO Center for Biblical Understanding.
Become a Mentor
You don’t have to be a Bible scholar or have experience in missionary work to be a TWIO Mentor. All you need is a strong love of Christ, a heart to serve, and an open mind and a desire to share what you know. Pastor Meenan will train you and the TWIO staff will show you how to raise funds, help you book your travel, and guide you in getting a visa and immunization.
Mentors get a chance to develop intimate relationships with the people they meet who welcome them with great affection and open arms. Being a Mentor to God’s people in the global south will change your life forever.
We invite you to join our next mission trip!
