All of the books are written in Sesotho and LTEE students study them on their own time, in their own homes, as they continue with their ministries.
A second part of LTEE is the WhatsApp group discussions. This element allows time for students to raise questions from their books to be discussed as a group, and it offers the opportunity to supplement the written material with other topics of study.
Each TEE book is divided into ten weeks of study material.
After these ten weeks (or about once per quarter), the TEE group will gather for a weekend conference/seminar to write their exams, formally completing their books.
Finally, every TEE student (whether they are pastors or not) is expected to have a personal ministry, where they serve their church by using the training they are receiving.
While TEE is designed for pastors and church leaders, it is also opened to any believer who is interested in furthering their biblical understanding. This is why we desire all TEE students to find a ministry outlet, not only to accumulate knowledge (1 Cor. 8:1 – “KNOWLEDGE ALONE PUFFS UP, BUT LOVE BUILDS UP”)
