Tuition fees at the Evangelical Theological Seminary of Indonesia are intentionally kept low to enable as many students as possible to enrol.
However, some students, especially those from remote areas, do not have the financial resources to attend seminary without scholarship help. Also, other seminaries in Indonesia offer substantially more money for scholarships.
Thus, ETSI faces a double obstacle in recruiting students—they require each student to plant a church and they have limited scholarship funds. These two challenges limit new student enrolment.
WorldShare is committed to seeing passionate young leaders in Indonesia receive the theological training they need so that they are effective in ministry now and in the years to come. With their unique and challenging emphasis on hands-on evangelism and church planting while in school, these leaders leave ETSI well prepared to lead churches after graduation.
For the 2010-2011 school year, ETSI’s goal is to recruit 100 new students. Gifts to this project will provide partial scholarships for 475 students. Each needs £25 per month. You can give a one-time gift or a regular sponsorship.
