Digital Seminars

Lorem Ipsum

Digital seminars are organized in class settings through the sponsorship of local churches and seminaries. Each digital course is 30 hours in length and includes a student manual for taking notes. A small group of local pastors and bible study leaders gather to complete the course with the help of local facilitators over periods of 5 days, 2 weeks, 5 weeks, or a pre-determined time frame.

TTi was founded by Janson Chan who is now serving as the Executive Director of our ministries. In early 2001, Janson was helped by his two former professors, Dr. Duane Elmer and Dr. Grant Osborne to organize seminars, training church pastors and leaders in China.

One distinguishing feature of this training is the use of world-class, evangelical bible scholars. In 2005, a systematic curriculum was established consisting of Bible books for the biannual training. In 2008, we moved to Hong Kong and registered in the USA to become a non-profit organization. By the grace of God, our ministry continues to grow to include two seminars every year held in Hong Kong, with three courses in each seminar.

In 2011, we added the use of digital courses to our training. These digital courses were made from video recordings of our live seminars. They are offered in China in small class settings with the sponsorship of local churches or seminaries. Enrollment for these courses is limited to local pastors and Bible study group leaders.

Board of Directors

We have a board of directors and our executive director is accountable to the board for his guidance and development of our ministries. Our board of directors include Dr. Grant Osborne (board chairman), Dr. Richard Averbeck (Secretary), Dr. George Guthrie, Dr. Hanry Yu, Dr. Martin Klauber and Dr. Duane Elmer.

Statement of Faith

TTi is interdenominational and is independent, with no affiliation to any local church, seminary or missions organization.

Statement of Faith

We have been offering courses on the Masters level. Students are required to complete their pre-course, practicum, and post-course assignments in addition to their attendance at the 8 days seminar. We are building an electronic library that aims to provide electronic resources for reading and research for our students.

We are an Associate Member of Asia Theological Association (ATA). Currently, we are offering the Master of Arts program with two concentrations: MA in Biblical Studies and MA in Christian Studies. Our goal is to receive full accreditation for our Master of Arts program in 2019.
