Indigenous missionaries and pastors in the foreign field have been limited by their own poverty from having an adequate library to use as a resource for studying the Scriptures. In response to this need, TEL International has purposed to assist our partners with biblical and theological literature. Our primary goal is to encourage indigenous pastors and missionaries to continue striving to know God and submit their lives and ministries to the dictates of His Word. Our passion is to demonstrate that God’s Word is all-sufficient for all things in life and ministry. It is “profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (II Timothy 3:16-17).
In striving towards our goal of building up the indigenous church and its ministers, we provide pastoral libraries to missionaries and pastors in the foreign field. The Great Commission is not about sending missionaries, but about sending God’s truth through missionaries. A pastoral library may include: study bible, exhaustive concordance, bible dictionary, one-volume bible commentary and systematic theology. With your help we can provide biblical and theological resources for the benefit of those who have the greatest need and the least resources.
