Over and over again, I come across Christians who are not sure if
preaching is spiritual, if the preacher studies in an established Bible
school. I believe preaching and systematic study goes together. In fact the more
the preacher knows the Bible, the more spiritual his sermons will be. The Word of God is
spirit (John 6:63). Paul gave a prescriptive command to Timothy when he instructed him to
study to show himself approved (2 Timothy 2:15). The Greek word for approved refers to one
being approved after being tested. If one was to be tested, that means someone of higher
authority was to evaluate the ability of a person whether or not he or she reached a certain
requirement. Surely all believe that discipling believers is prescriptive Scriptural command.
Paul also told Timothy to entrust faithful men who will be able to teach others also (2 Timothy
2:24). So, here we are, someone needs to make an assessment. Therefore, attending an
accredited Bible school is a good way to be assessed by competent authorities. Start studying
the Living Word of God systematically today, and serve Him even better.
The Corinthian Letters
Third Course towards
undergraduate certificate in
GIT just completed the second course
leading to the above certificate. In two
weeks 18 students will be taking the
final exam by competing their written
assignments, and taking the final exam.
September 3, 2012, we will give start to
a new course The Corinthian Letters.
As you can read its introduction here,
this course will give the student the real
feel of the Corinthian Church’s life.
The study guide will give a clear
understanding of the “why” Paul wrote
these revealing letters. The course will
be explained in its cultural, historical
and social settings to understand Paul’s
teaching. This course can be taken by
anyone who is interested to have
deeper understanding of these two
wonderful letters found in the New
As always the teachers who will be
instructing the 15 lessons of this course
are well known for their ability to deliver
the lesson plan and apply it to our
(Maltese) cultural context. However, we
are very happy to have Pastor Nicholas
A. Montalto teaching for GIT for the first
time. Pastor Montalto recently recieved
his Masters Degree in Missions from
Mattersey Hall in England. (Mattersey Hall

If you send us an email on this address

send you a free GU Study guide of your
choice from those introduced on our website
under 21st Century Discipleship.
I am Jide Jetson, Pastor of Destiny
Assembly in Malta. My wife
(Roberta) and I have been
pastoring for this church
for over six years and we
are also students of
Although I have done some
Bible courses in the past, I can
honestly say that studying at GIT Malta is a
great privilege to us. The materials used are
theologically sound and as well as faith building.
Those teaching the different subjects has proved
themselves as called teachers and completed the
course themselves. The guidance by the GIT director,
is seen in the success of the way lessons are delivered.
As a Pastor who is very keen on helping people grow in
their knowledge of Christ, I have come to see the
importance of correctly interpreting God’s Word as it
originally was intended to by the original writer through the
study guides written by Global University. This has helped
me a great deal in my teaching and preaching of God’s
Word. To have a strong church, the leader’s primary task is
to “feed and nurture God’s people with God’s Word.”
Therefore, when the Bible is correctly interpreted, and the
church remains faithful to a Biblically sound doctrine, it
will be triumphant now and in the generation to come.
We have also encouraged some members of the church to
enroll and by the grace of God, they are doing well; not just
leaders but also members who wants to study God’s Word
to be good workmen thoroughly furnished for every good
