Dear Friends of the International Bible Teaching Ministry,
Season's Greetings from Atlanta. It is good sometimes to look back and take stock of how God has moved in the course of a year.
I recently returned from a teaching trip to Asia, teaching two courses each in Bangkok, Thailand and Manila, Philippines. We have just completed the second full year of the Asia-Pacific Leadership Academy, and the results have been heartwarming.
Formerly the DCC School of the Bible, the Rocky Mountain School of Ministry is now in partnership with Lincoln Christian University to offer graduate and undergraduate Bible and theology classes for credit. By next year htese classes are to be available online.
There were about 100 ministers - both paid and non-paid who gathered in Kiev on the 7th of April. They came from all over the Ukraine and there were representatives even from Moldavia, Byelorussia, Lithuania and Latvia. We all came together as students of Athens Institute of Ministry or AIM-Kiev.
How can we all get along? Our Father wants his children to live in harmony and has given us the answers in the Scriptures. The 2009 International Teachers Seminar will explore the Bible on this crucial subject in August in Atlanta. Beginning this year the ITS is being led by the ICOC Ministry Education and Teaching Service Team.
How can we all get along? That's the question people are asking around the world in all aspects of life.

Beginning this year the ITS is being led by the ICOC Ministry Education and Teaching Service Team.
Following is a report from the ICOC Teaching & Ministry Education Service Team. Another sign of growing health in our fellowship is the emphasis on our leaders being trained in the Scriptures and the establishment of models of ministry education in Manila, Atlanta, Mexico City and Chicago.
Douglas Jacoby continues to travel the globe, teaching and preaching in the churches to call us higher in our understanding of God. Here, he reports on his travels to Scandinavia and the Philippines:
