Training leaders for Christ
Learn about TELL from Director Nate Seiltz
TELL Network provides Bible study curriculum focused on leadership training for students across the globe, preparing them to gather groups, lead Bible studies, and plant churches. TELL is both the program name and a representation of the method used to teach the Bible: Think, Evaluate, Learn, and Lead. The training method is customized across four programs offered in English, Mandarin, Spanish, and Tagalog.
Students gain knowledge and confidence to lead others to the saving message of the gospel using the straight-forward and easy to remember training method. Based off the original Academia Cristo (TELL Spanish) curriculum, TELL Network students complete video courses, participate in live Zoom courses with theologically trained instructors, and learn to lead groups in their own communities.
Academia Cristo brings the gospel to Latin America, making disciples through biblical instruction so that they can bring the good news of Jesus Christ to others. Learn more at wels.net/latinamerica.
ISIP (TELL Tagalog) TELL Network’s newest addition, was created as a response to a need from our national church in Manila, Philippines. Learn more at wels.net/philippines.
找寻圣带 (TELL Mandarin) begins with online self-study courses as a prerequisite to entering pre-seminary training through Asia Lutheran Seminary. Learn more at wels.net/als.
Fulfilling WELS World Missions’ vision to reach the English-speaking world with the gospel in a new way, TELL English trains English speakers around the globe through its online Bible study curriculum. TELL strives to make e-learning accessible, even when students live in remote areas with limited internet access. Many TELL students do not own personal computers; they attend live classes using their phones. An intentional use of the latest technology makes it possible for anyone to learn Biblical truths and share those truths with others. View a sample TELL Bible lesson!
