Ruba’s PTEE Story

“When I was about 15 years old, my father started a course with PTEE and I was helping him in studying.  I liked what he was learning then, and asked if I could attend the course as well…”

Why study with PTEE?

PTEE provides leadership education on location. You don’t need to travel to another city or country in order to receive training. We bring it to you. That means you remain involved in ministry in your church, workplace or community while you are studying.

PTEE courses are accredited. This assures students of a high-quality theological education. PTEE’s awards have been accredited by the Asia Theological Association (ATA) since 2002, and by the Middle East Association for Theological Education (MEATE) since 2012.

PTEE makes theological study accessible and enjoyable. Our interactive self-study manuals encourage and motivate you as you study. You want to go on to the next lesson, and you remember much more than you thought you could. In addition, your relationship with God will be deepened considerably.

PTEE applies learning to your ministry context. Our weekly group meetings, facilitated by qualified trained tutors, not only enable discussion and reflection upon what you have studied during the week, but help you begin to apply your learning to the context of your daily life. Hence your learning takes place in the real world.

PTEE combines academic learning with practical ministry. And alongside the academic study, which usually has a practical orientation anyway, you will be involved in supervised practical ministry for credit. Theory, reflection, discussion and practice combined make for a rounded, holistic education, equipping you to make a difference in your church, community and workplace.

PTEE courses are high-quality, but very affordable. We only charge you the cost of photocopied course materials and a basic registration fee. And you don’t have to give up your normal income to study, as you would for full-time studies.

PTEE is evangelical and interdenominational. We are committed to serving churches across the region irrespective of the denomination, though our theological com­mit­ment is strongly evangelical. Many courses are run across denominational lines.

PTEE is committed to training both men and women for ministry. We believe that God calls and gifts both men and women for Christian ministry, and therefore offer our training freely to both sexes.

PTEE is impacting the Arabic-speaking world. You’ll be joining some 200 others who have taken collectively 65 courses per year over the last 5 years. You’ll become part of a movement that is helping to shape the Arabic-speaking world of today … and tomorrow!
