ETF Retreat

Listening to testimonies from our younger staff members

Monasteries are numerous in Belgium. They reflect a time when the Roman Catholic church was powerful and influential in this country. Now, many monasteries are in decline, focusing on a ministry of hospitality, so that these monasteries become conference centers of sorts.

It is in just such a monastery that the ETF seminary held their annual retreat. It was refreshing to look over the accomplishments of the past year, to realize how much had been done, and how the Lord had provided. We also spent time discussing the challenges that future graduates would face in a quickly changing world. ET’s aim is to equip leaders who are biblically grounded and culturally alert, so that they are able to lead believers in these changing times. What does that require of our teaching and our curriculum? Searching questions that keep our hearts focused on our main task.

We also spent time considering the financial challenges that the ETF is facing these months.

Please pray for us to keep our focus clear and for the Lord’s daily provision.
