· ‘Learning In Place’: Localized and in-context training enables our students to live and        to minister at home


· Classroom training in Bible, Theology, Prayer and other ministry and life topics


· Life application of those topics through group discussion and personal, pastoral



· Visits to the students’ homes, and churches/areas of ministry:

         * Provide an opportunity to observe how material learned in the classroom is                         applied in ministry context


          * Bring them credibility


          * Greatly encourage them, their families and their churches. (As our students’                     ministries generally  offer little or no financial remuneration, it is often a great                     sacrifice for them to train and to serve.)


·Hospitality in our home offers informal, relational time together. Much of Quichua                ministry occurs in the context of relationships.
