this time I didnt understand the Old Testament. It was confusing to me. But the way you are teaching us, it makes so much sense to me As we rolled down the road I now. couldnt help but feel excited and It was hard work, and it was cold. nervous about what laid ahead. I I would wake up early in the had never taught pastors before, much less a pastors seminar. Did I have what it took? Would they be open to learn from me? I leaned forward in my seat with a determination to rise up to the challenge. Slowly the people came into the b u i l d i n g a s w e s e t u p o u r illustrations. Finally every seat was filled. Without any cue voices filled the room falling and rising to African worship, feet shifting back morning, the cold fingers of winter and forth.

Titus Project has been a revolutionary school for me in terms of Bible teaching. It helped me to value preparation, and gave me tools to present teachings to different types of audiences. One thing that Titus taught me is to be able to manage my time, to teach according to the time given to me, to be able to value the key points and not just speak random things and then rush through my material at the end. It really touched me to see the need for Bible teaching. It challenged me to pass on the knowledge I have.

One more thing, Titus Project to me is not just about reaching out to others in the church but reaching out to myself. I know you will ask what does it mean! Before Titus lecture phase and outreach, my teasching was far poor but during outreach I saw clearly how many notes were poorly prepared. This caused me to struggle so much during my teaching time. Now I can structure my teaching and make it easier to communicate. Titus Project to me is all about reaching others as well as Im reaching myself. The teachings provided by Titus Project are desperately needed not just in Africa but around the world especially this time where everyone want to teach whatever he/she want as long as people are listening to him/her. Godlisten, Tanzania The lecture phase of the Titus Project is one of the most beneficial courses I have ever taken.
