Saturday, April 30, 2011, will be an historic day as students, professors, staff, friends and family gather together in celebration of the accomplishments of the first students to graduate from ProMETA.
ProMETA (also known as the Latin America Training Network in the English-speaking world) provides master’s level theological education to Spanish-speakers throughout the world. The program is 100% online, making higher education accessible to pastors and leaders who do not have the option to leave home (including their families and their full-time jobs or ministries) to pursue their studies.

After several years of dedicated studies, six students (three each from Costa Rica and Venezuela) will graduate on Saturday. “The ‘first-fruits’ of what is to come,” says Keith, EFCA ReachGlobal missionary and ProMETA Director.
In keeping with the virtual nature of the program, the graduation gathering will include a live online broadcast in addition to a physical ceremony in Costa Rica (home to ProMETA headquarters). The Venezuelan students and their families will participate in the ceremony remotely from Venezuela, although they will receive their diplomas in person from a Christian leader in their community.
Because the broadcast is live on the internet, ProMETA has the honor of inviting everyone — regardless of location — to join the celebration on Saturday. The ceremony begins at 6pm Eastern/4pm Mountain Time. Don’t miss this historic event and an opportunity to rejoice in the Lord’s work through ProMETA.
