THE SEMINARY

Fort Dauphin Baptist Theological Seminary (FBTS) trains, equips and releases a new generation of church leaders through biblical teaching to reach the tribes of Madagascar and the nations of the world through spreading the gospel and evangelical church planting. The Seminary exists to serve the local churches.

In daily training sessions, for two weeks, approximately 70 male and female national leaders came to learn discipleship, doctrine, and evangelism from Southwestern teachers. These 70 Madagascar church leaders completed their training as part of Southwestern Seminary's five-year initiative and received their certification for completing the courses.

SOUTHWESTERN LAYS GROUNDWORK FOR FUTURE SEMINARY IN MADAGASCAR

By Julie Owens

July 27, 2017

 

Hard work is evident in the progress made in Southwestern Seminary’s outreach to the remote, undeveloped island of Madagascar—hard work and, unmistakably, the hand of God. In 2012, Southwestern Seminary accepted a challenge from the International Mission Board (IMB) to adopt an unreached people group—the Antandroy people of Madagascar. This summer, Southwestern laid the groundwork for a leadership training institute and future seminary to be located in Fort Dauphin, equipping Antandroy believers to reach their nation with the Gospel.

"After Southwestern has secured financial and time commitments from two to three “Champion Churches”—U.S.-based congregations willing to prayerfully and financially partner with Southwestern and the Madagascar seminary—Southwestern will be on a five-year track to develop curriculum for the Madagascar seminary and graduate the first class of cohorts with bachelor’s degrees. Mamitiana will be charged with translating educational resources and advising students in their journey."

THE FUTURE

The land on which the seminary building will be built has already been purchased through donor contributions. Plans for construction of the building have been drawn, including elevation renderings of the final building. A champion church / churches are needed to partner with the ministry in Madagascar to construct the building and to put infrastructure in place.
