Teaching Opportunity in the Ukraine (UPDATED)

There is an opportunity to teach at the Zaporozhye Bible College and Seminary in Ukraine in their MTh program.

ZBCS is a missionary endeavor. It is a nonprofit organization. All visiting professors are in effect short term missionaries. You would need to raise your own airfare and bring 350 Euro (or equivalent) for food and transport.

Philip A Gottschalk, Chair, Division of Theological & Historical Studies at Tyndale Theological Seminary in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is coordinating it. A couple TTS grads are involved there, Vladimir Gorbenko and Olga Litvinenko. Vladimir is the Academic Dean at ZBCS and Olga is our interpreter. Vladimir has an MDiv from Tyndale and an MA from Gordon Conwell TS. Olga has an MDiv from Tyndale and an MTh from Tilburg University in the Netherlands.

The following are possible dates for teaching one-week long seminar classes

1. September 14 – 21, 2018

2. November 5 – 12, 2018

3. January 11 - 18, 2019

4. March 8 - 15, 2019
5. April 26-May 3, 2019

The dates are flexible to some degree, if the potential professor would like to suggest approximately similar dates, e.g. one week earlier or later.
