Bible College Legacy
// Tim DeTellis
This month, August 2019, marks the 20th anniversary of our church in Ti-Boucan, Haiti.
We have 35 churches across Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The story of Ti-Boucan is a unique one—because of the location of this mountainside church and school.
Doing some research in our archives, I found this segment written by my father, Pastor George DeTellis, about the Ti-Boucan church: “The goats that grace the Haitian mountains have great dexterity. Even so is a young pastor in our Bible College named Joseph Elite Eliane. He is tenacious for the Lord. My first time visiting this mountain church in Ti-Boucan, I was unsure we could reach the top because it was so steep.”
Pastor Joseph Elite Eliane finished Bible college at New Missions in the year 2000, and today, we have 156 children attending school in Ti-Boucan, Haiti. As we invest in the lives of new Bible college students, we celebrate their graduation and send-off to serve in churches across Haiti. Matthew 9:37-38 says it best, “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’” ~Tim DeTellis
