Ministry Board

The Ministry Board’s task is vital. It has two key functions. Firstly it maintains the rigorous doctrinal standards which underpin everything we do. Secondly it seeks to support, encourage and develop all aspects PTI’s ministry.

Specifically, it reviews and approves all the books, training materials and expatriate trainers that PTI uses. This ensures that PTI continues to teach the reformed, conservative, evangelical understanding of Biblical Christianity that PTI believes most accurately represents the faith set forth in the Word of God.
