International Theological Education

International Theological Education (ITE) is a ministry dedicated to helping overseas Christian colleges, seminaries, and ministry training programs. We work with schools in South and Central America, the Asia Pacific region, Europe and Africa helping them train their own people for Christian ministry and leadership. This in turn fuels the launching of missions movements from these nations. Join with us as we empower people from every nation to take the gospel to every nation.

Understanding by Design for Theological Education


Learn to design courses that focus on using knowledge in the real world. Understanding by Design is a course design framework that emphasizes identifying and then helping students uncover the understandings that make knowledge useful in life.

Seminar participants learn to:

  1. identify the desired results required by their objectives
  2. develop assessments that provide evidence students have attained these results
  3. design instructional experiences that guide students as they:
    • figure out principles (understandings) that connect knowledge into useful models
    • cultivate automaticity of recall on essential knowledge and skills
    • deal effectively with real life tasks and problems

This is an interactive seminar in which you will design a course as you learn the UbD principles.

Program Design for Theological Education


Learn to design “competency” based ministry training programs.

You will learn how to develop programs that prepare people for specific areas of ministry. Using a competency based approach, you will be able to outline the path (a series of courses) a person must follow to develop the abilities needed for that ministry. This is a great tool for institutional and local church based programs.
