Trained for work in grassroots communities
The Theological Evangelical Community of Chile (CTE), with sponsorship from five churches, is the only Protestant training facility in Chile that offers basic and advanced theological training at academic level. This training is primarily directed at individuals from the various Evangelical churches in Chile: it takes a holistic and open approach to the diversity of Christian traditions.
The CTE's various training programmes prepare the participants for their future activities in the church and in society, with particular emphasis on the issues of gender and ecumenism, as well as empowerment to assume social responsibilities.
The CTE offers various training courses that can be completed by obtaining a diploma (the 'Bachillerato') or a degree. Mission 21 co-finances the various study courses. In addition to regular courses, the CTE trains teachers to provide religious instruction at public schools.
