Over 70% of Pastors
Leave ministry within the first 10 years after their training! This is infuriating. Theoretical education in a Bible school is often not enough to prepare young leaders for pastoral ministry. How can we change this? We have found a way…
We want to empower people to establish and grow churches, lead people, preach with authority, and nurture a deep relationship with Jesus. We want to see people learn to love and be content no matter their circumstances.
Our students and the placement churches are so enthusiastic about this dual concept and the 3×3 training program, that we have rapidly expanded in the last year. THS has 3 locations in Germany and 1 location in Kenya. We plan to open additional locations in Germany and beyond in the coming years.
With the THS degree the Apprentices could work as:
- Senior Pastor
- Youth Pastor
The tuition fee for students is 260 USD/month. This will cover all lessons including tests. For one year it will add up to 3120 USD. An additional fee of 800-1000 USD is due for the BA thesis. We thank NCIU for hosting our program. The fee does not include books, food and housing. (Coffee is always complementary :-)) The placement church has to match this costs (260 USD/month). The student will work there 20 h per week.
Since 1995, Tom and Inga Haase have founded churches in Germany and trained leaders. In 2011, Inga Haase started the THS Academy with a focus on educating young people for pastoral ministry. In doing so, she transferred the German simultaneous training system of masters and apprentices to pastoral education. There are 9 core disciplines that Jesus taught his disciples. Because of this, THS pastors are trained in a parallel system with a placement church and an academy-setting. This method is called the 3×3 Concept.
Since our beginning, 45 pastors have been trained by THS. Many of these pastors work in existing organizations or have established new churches.
