How can YOUR CONGREGATION get involved?
Graduation day for these Tutors
Host TEEZ Courses. One of the best ways you can serve your congregation is to start hosting TEEZ Courses. In consultation with church leadership and the TEEZ Course Overview, decide which courses will best mobilize your congregation’s gifts to meet your congregation’s needs. TEEZ Courses are designed to equip all the saints to participate in the ministry, thereby unburdening the pastor and enlivening the congregation. Please Contact Us for more information concerning hosting TEEZ Courses.
Host a TEEZ Tutor Training. Every year, TEEZ conducts trainings at congregations all over Zambia, for the purpose of training TEEZ Tutors who will lead TEEZ Courses. You can increase the training capacity of your congregation, and bless other churches in your community by hosting a TEEZ Tutor Training. Host congregations provide space for our lectures, arrange meals for participants, and lodge the training team. To request a TEEZ Training in your area, please fill out the form on the TEEZ Training Calendar, or Contact Us.
Celebrate TEEZ Sunday. TEEZ Sunday is the easiest way for your congregation to support TEEZ. TEEZ Sunday is celebrated the last Sunday in July, with the Offering that Sunday going directly to TEEZ, to support and expand our ministry. On TEEZ Sunday, we encourage congregations to utilize TEEZ Students for the preaching, prayers, worship leadership, and testimonies, in order to showcase the skills and benefits of TEEZ Training.
Utilize TEEZ-trained individuals in the leadership of your congregation. TEEZ Students work hard to learn skills that they believe will serve their congregation and expand its ministry. Your church can actualize this dream by including TEEZ students in the preaching calendars, the Sunday School teaching assignments, the pastoral visitations, and by allowing them to chair administrative committees. The more these Christians are used, the more they will learn, grow, and be encouraged, all of which will benefit your congregation’s worship, service, and mission. TEEZ Students, who have completed all five basic courses, make wonderful section or prayer house leaders.
Include TEEZ in your weekly prayers. We depend on the prayers of saints all around the world for the strength, vision, and resources needed to complete the ministry, with which God has charged us. Consider including TEEZ in your weekly prayers of intercession. Doing so will bless us while expanding the spiritual horizons of your congregation. Please Contact Us for specific prayer requests.
Become a TEEZ Partner and include us in your mission budget. While TEEZ is an indigenously initiated and operated ministry of 9 Zambian Churches, we depend on the generosity of congregations like yours to fund our ministry. Please consider becoming one of our Mission Partners, by including us in your congregation’s mission budget. We long to extend the scope of your congregation’s ministry by being your representatives here in Zambia and by working with you to develop a discipleship program in your context, which can raise up preachers, teachers, counsellors, worship leaders, and administrators from within your congregation. Please Contact Us to negotiate a partnership arrangement and organize a convenient ways to exchange money and information.
Increase lay training in your congregation. Christians in Zambia are not uniquely qualified to minister to or train other Christians. We long to see congregations around the world distribute ministerial duties of preaching, teaching, counselling, worship leadership, and administration among the whole body of believers, rather than localize it in a single individual. You would honor TEEZ and our Savior by training men and women well enough that they could actually participate in the Church’s mission to create more and better disciples of Jesus.
