IBT renews ties

ATESEA and FTESEA team visited the Institute of Bible and Theology (IBT) in Ho Chi Minh City on September 6-9, 2014 to re-establish links.

IBT has been a member of ATESEA since 1971. The connection between the two was temporarily cut-off due to changes in the leadership in the last 4 four years. Dr. Ngoei Foong Nghian, the ATESEA Chair, Dr. HS Wilson, the Executive Director of FTESEA and Dr. Limuel Equina exchanged updates with the IBT leaders on the institutions’ challenges, on-going programs and plans. Some areas for possible cooperation in building up the school’s academic programs, faculty and library resources were discussed.

Some possible partnerships in the area of curriculum and faculty development were explored. The leaders of the school expressed their intention to relate with ATESEA family.
