Your Curriculum
We cover the following four areas:

  • BIBLICAL STUDIES: Learning about God. We study books of the Bible and theological themes with the benefit of giving lifelong foundations and tools for students to understand God and His Word.
  • CHRISTIAN LIVING: Learning about relationships. We focus on character development and giving biblical and practical tools on how to relate to people and to get to know themselves better.
  • CULTURE: Learning about the world. We look at how to develop a Christian/biblical worldview as we have classes that engage with media, movies, popular culture and important modern ethical issues.
  • CHURCH LIFE: Learning about the church. We teach about church leadership, do practical ministry and expose students to various Joshgen congregations and life-changing conferences. We also offer a worship stream in which we train students to play instruments and how to lead worship.

Timothy Ministry Training incorporates more than the conveying of information to the end of attaining an attendance certificate. It facilitates the growth of a student, equipping them to effectively fulfil their destiny by supplying the necessary competencies and experience to succeed. Developing a person to walk as someone of character, with a dynamic relationship with God who will be effective in whatever they set out to do. It leads to an individual, encountered by a living God, changed and ready to bring change!

Class Schedule & Afternoon Program

The TMT programme will run from 8:30 until 13:00 during week days. During these times, students will focus on our curriculum. We will have devotional times, teaching classes, an outreach day once a week, practical classes, book review classes, and a worship stream.

Students will be exposed to a variety of teachers from within JoshGen as well as other local and international speakers.

During the afternoons all students will be expected to get involved in one of two electives. We want to make it clear that even though the official TMT program will only be until 1pm in the afternoons, the student will be expected to get involved in one of the two electives mentioned below. We consider these electives to be part of the complete package of what students will learn during their time with us.

The TMT theoretical course does not offer an accredited academic qualification. However, we create opportunities for our students to study any correspondence studies if they wish to do so. Students will be able to use the time in the afternoons to study an online course etc. Students, who want to study Theology on a full time basis can do so through SATS (South African Theological Seminary) at a discounted rate. TMT will assist students by offering regular tutorials and assisting with necessary administration linked to their studies at SATS.

The second option that the student will have is to find a half day job during the afternoons. This option can assist students with their financial responsibilities.  In addition to that, being exposed to a normal work environment can assist them in practically applying and grounding what they have learnt at TMT. If a student chooses not to study or cannot find a job during the afternoons, the student will be expected to serve to some capacity. In such a case TMT will provide serving opportunities at the school, the church or on our property.

Another option for an afternoon elective is to be part of our worship training. The worship elective is not only for those who are already playing an instrument or musically advanced. This elective is aimed at anyone who desires to become a worship leader or be trained to be part of a worship band. As part of the worship elective, students will take part in weekly classes, get hands on training by a worship leader and may also be encouraged to do extra music lessons to learn an instrument or to spend more time mastering an instrument. This elective can also be done together with studies or some of the more flexible job opportunities.
