A.M.O. offers seminary courses to the volunteers who minister with us. Many of the youth and adults who have enrolled in these courses would never have had the chance to attend a traditional seminary or Bible school. Our students testify that the courses have been a blessing in their spiritual walks and in their decision-making. We are witnesses to the drastic changes we’ve seen in these young lives; most of them have committed to serving Christ and bringing others into a relationship with Him.
The courses we offer are led remotely by Pr. Samuel Brennan, a missionary who lives abroad. Pr. Samuel holds a Bachelor of Arts with major in Bible and minor in Psychology (Tennessee Temple University); a Master of Arts in Counseling and a Master of Divinity (Luther Rice Seminary); certification as Secondary Education Teacher with specialization in Psychology, Sociology & Language Arts (Pittsburgh State University); and years of studies in linguistics and cross-cultural communications analyzing and/or studying four languages and cultures including Portuguese, Spanish, Greek, and Cherokee. We are so thankful for advances in technology that allow us to effectively communicate with other believers around the globe to further edify Christ’s church!
Since 2011, we have been distributing Bible Training Center for Pastors (BTCP) curricula to pastors all across Brazil. The goal of BTCP is to produce pastors and leaders who will be used by God to contribute to the spiritual growth of the local church and thus bring glory to our Lord Jesus Christ! We have taught some of the BTCP courses to our students and have been blessed with such a great training tool for the gospel ministry!
In addition to the various seminary courses studied such as Bible Analysis, Panoramic Bible, Bible History, Homiletics, etc., the students also have completed Experiencing God, The Mind of Christ, Master Life, and The Disciple’s Cross, plus participated in the studies The Wonderful Spirit-Filled Life, Lord, Is it Warfare- Teach me to Stand, Purpose Driven Life, Purpose Driven Church, Network and Breaking Free.
