ITEA exists to provide resources and vision for church-based leadership training and discipleship.
Although several traditional Bible institutes and seminaries exist in France, these institutions cannot provide the number of leaders needed by the French church. ITEA provides an alternative to the traditional leadership-training model. Rather than removing potential leaders from the church and sending them away to formal institutions, the ITEA church-based method allows quality training to take place within the church, under the leadership of a local pastor.
ITEA’s vision is to see churches planted and believers brought up in the fundamentals of the faith in such a way that evangelical churches will become biblically strong and reproducing.
