Ministerios Evangélicos de las Américas (MEDA), or Evangelical Ministries of the Americas, was established in 1998. MEDA receives and trains pastors from over 100 churches from all evangelical denominations in Honduras and a growing number of Central American countries. MEDA's attraction is its reputation for quality instruction and focus on the essentials for preaching the point of each passage. Repeatedly, the men express that there is nothing like MEDA in all of Central America. The ministry truly is unique in its design and emphasis.
MEDA’s purpose is to give pastors and church leaders the tools necessary to faithfully feed and lead the flock of God. This is done in two training programs. The first is a series of conferences taught by MEDA's full-time seminary processors, along with speakers from other seminaries and local churches. This structure precludes the need for pastors to leave their churches to receive training. For many, this is the only formal and reliable theological training received.
The second program is the MEDA Seminary for Expository Preaching. It offers a more intense level of education to those who desire to further develop their skills in precisely interpreting, explaining, and applying the Biblical text. MEDA believes that Expository Preaching is not a method of preaching, but a mandate for precision; hence it reflects that in its curriculum.
