Established in 1994 by several Western missions (including WorldVenture) and several Senegalese national churches, the Evangelical Theology Institute of Senegal (ITES) has been a cooperative effort ever since. ITES is a Bible-based church leadership training school whose mission is to train indigenous leadership for the national church in Senegal and beyond.
This special project is intended to cover the financial gap so that the school can not only continue to train leaders for the Senegalese church, but also expand.
The school charges less than $8 per credit hour, however, the tuition charged is not enough to meet operating expenses. Most of our students could barely afford to pay that, and all the students and churches that are served by ITES know that the tuition is subsidized. "Real" tuition is calculated at $25 per credit hour.
ITES has a vision to be a much greater impact for the establishment of Christ's kingdom throughout French-speaking West Africa.
Giving toward student scholarships will help keep the doors of this vital school open to serve the next generation of Christian leaders in Senegal.
One scholarship would be approximately $600 per year (or $50/month).
