Where does SEAP serve?
VIETNAM NATIONAL PARTNERS
In 2005, Pastor Peter Le had a vision to train pastors and evangelists in Reformed Calvinistic doctrine in order to equip them to teach, train, and grow a Reformed Presbyterian Church. Although his ministry began in the 1970s during a very difficult time in Vietnamese history, Pastor Le came to love the doctrines of grace when he had the opportunity to receive formal training at Singapore Bible College in the 1990s.
His vast experience in ministry, coupled with a love for grace and God’s sovereignty, has produced disciples who balance head knowledge with heart knowledge. Several pastors and evangelists have responded to his teaching and shared in his vision over the years.
In 2010, five men were ordained after completing five years of Bible training. They are the foundation of a new Presbyterian Church in Vietnam. Several others are in training while also leading house churches. All together, there are 18 churches that make up this growing network.
Recently, Pastor Peter has merged his group with the Presbyterian Church of Vietnam, comprised of around 90 other Presbyterian Churches across Vietnam. Pastor Peter and other ordained men from his group are taking leadership and training roles in this denomination.
Looking forward, the goals include continuing to train evangelists, local pastors and church planters in city and tribal ministry; starting three more church plants; continuing to train music/worship leaders for the denomination churches through Shalom Music School ministries; and adding Vietnamese teachers to the current Bible School teaching class.
