2024 is nearly here.
As the year comes to a close, we give thanks for the ways that God has provided, protected, and sustained His Church and the ministry of TMAI. Local churches—the witness to the world of the love of Christ—have been transformed and nurtured by faithful men, trained to rightly divide and preach His word.
When we look back on this past year, we rejoice in the ways God has used men trained at TMAI training centers to strengthen their local churches and transform communities. And as we look forward to 2024, we see the urgent need as more men are seeking this training for the sake of this purpose.

Thandokuhle is a student at Christ Seminary in South Africa, who sees the value and influence of a strong, local church. He recently shared with us:
“Being a student at Christ Seminary has impacted not only my life and my family, but other people as well in my community. As we learn, seminary allows us to go back home and to our churches to apply what we are learning.
This has resulted in me gathering a number of pastors from different churches in my community to a Bible Study kind of gathering where I teach them how to rightly handle the word of God, how to live a holy life as a Christian, having the high view of God, loving and being faithful to your wife, etc.”
A righteous and holy life, a high view of God, loving one’s family in a Christ-like way— these are the tools that God uses to transform communities and be a testimony of truth to the world.
TMAI is reliant upon your support in order to equip them with the tools they need to serve Christ’s flock and proclaim His name.
However, Thandokuhle knows that living a life of integrity and submitting to the truth is divisive. The gospel of Jesus Christ will harden the rebellious and soften the humble (Romans 9:17-18):
“Some have deserted us, but some are embracing these truths. One of them is now a student of Christ Seminary, in his first year. I am hoping to send more in the near future.”
From the faithfulness and testimony of one, others can clearly see the value and influence of rightly understanding and preaching the word of God. And the rise in men seeking training is evidence of the impact these men have, and the great need still yet to be met.
Yet without your support through student scholarships, these men do not have the means to be trained.
All around the world, souls, churches, and communities are in great need of renewal—of the transforming work of the Gospel. All around the world, godly men see this dire need and are seeking training through TMAI. And TMAI is reliant upon your support in order to equip them with the tools they need to serve Christ’s flock and proclaim His name (Romans 10:14-15).
As 2023 comes to an end, please consider supporting TMAI’s Student Scholarship Fund to enable these men to accurately study the word, shepherd their churches, and proclaim the gospel to the nations in 2024—until they all hear.
