It’s been nearly 44 years since SEAN (Seminary by Extension to All Nations) was founded, on the 14th July 1971, amongst the indigenous peoples of Chile, Paraguay and Northern Argentina.
Since then, over one and a half million students and pastors, in more than 100 countries across the globe, have been discipled and trained using SEAN’s simple-to-follow theological courses.
These courses have been essential for discipling new believers and training lay and ordained leaders within affordable and sustainable programmes that have transformed the level of Biblical education and active participation of these congregations.
There are countless testimonies of the benefits SEAN’s courses have brought to local churches and communities all round the world. In Colombia, the ‘Association of Biblical Churches of the Caribbean’ grew from 240 to over 850 congregations, in 28 years, using SEAN Courses to train their leaders. Across the prison system in Argentina, there are several thousand inmates being discipled with SEAN Courses, and 500 students are training to be internal ministers. ‘The SEAN courses have brought dignity to the lives of the prisoners. They have helped transform criminals into servants of God,’ says local pastor Revd. Dr. J. Norberto Saracco.
From Pamplona, Spain, Pastor Andrés Cale writes, ‘Studying the Life of Christ in Scripture guided by SEAN, we have returned to our first love.’ SEAN courses have been translated into more than 80 languages and, through its partners, well over 160,000 students and pastors are in training this year.
