In 1988 Dennis Mock taught a conference for pastors in Mombasa, Kenya.  He quickly realized that these men were eager to learn, but had never had any opportunity for theological or ministry training. Following his experience in Mombasa, Dennis wrote a comprehensive 10-course curriculum designed to equip pastors with essential Bible knowledge and basic pastoral skills.  This curriculum was first taught in Nairobi, Kenya in 1990. Since that time the Lord has expanded the ministry of BTCP around the world through hundreds of ministry partners using the program in over 80 countries.
Extending Non-formal Theoligical Training To the World's Untrained Pastors.

We are constantly amazed at how the Lord continues to multiply the ministry efforts of BTCP, and 2006 was no exception. Expansion and future growth are attainable through adding new ministry partners, increasing the capacity of existing partners and increasing available translations.
BTCP operates from the simple multiplication model provided in 2 Timothy 2:2,
“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” 
This illustrates the essence of BTCP’s ministry: students motivated for ministry become qualified graduates that are encouraged to train others.
We are reminded always that our ability to extend training is only possible through the generous support and prayers of God’s people. We simply ask that as you receive this report please consider howyou might help BTCP continue to fulfill it’s mission of training the untrained pastors and church leaders of the world.
Thank you so much for your involvement and support! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . Dennis Mock . . ..President - BTCP

.... Maine Cooperative Ministry for Leadership Training/Bible Institute:
The Bible Institute uses the Bible Training Center for Pastors (BTCP) concepts and curriculum, to provide trans-denominational basic Bible training for international pastors and church leaders that will adequately and effectively equip them with the necessary knowledge and practical skills for the work of local church ministry, here and abroad. The training began in November of 2009 with a total of 23 students from different ethnic groups (Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and Sudan).

The Center is also affiliated with the New England Bible College of South Portland for the oversight of its academic programs and the teaching credentials of its teachers.
