The TEE is a discipleship programme focused on the ministry within the Church with different gifts as recorded in Romans 12: 3-8; I Cor. 12; Eph. 4:11 and I Peter 4: 10; for the edification of the Church. It is a useful method of taking theological training to church leaders who cannot afford formal training and to leave their homes and churches.
a. TEE is Theological: this means that it teaches about God, how to work for God, and it gives training in the basics of Christian faith. It covers a full range of subjects found in the Bible, in Theology and in Christian Service.
b. TEE is Education: this means that it has developed from sound training principles, and if used well, will produce good results in helping people to learn.
c. TEE is Extension: this mean that it extends the work of the Seminary by training church helpers and others within their own church environment.
The Theological Education by Extension started in the Cameroon Baptist Convention in 1974 with the main aim of training people to do the work of the church.
It provides a comprehensive pastoral, biblical and doctrinal training programme to Pastors and Lay – Preachers who are unable to attend a residential programme away from home and ministry, or who do not feel called to complete a training programme that might prepare them for GCE examinations.
