The Extension Programs of EAPI provides customized training and consultancy services for church organizations in Asia Pacific. Besides the residential and academic programs, EAPI offers consultancy, workshops, and customized training directly to church-related organizations around Asia Pacific. Through these extension programs, EAPI accompanies specific local churches more closely as they strive to respond to the challenges of mission in their particular contexts.
EAPI's consultancy and training services can be requested directly by dioceses, bishops' conferences, religious congregations, lay association, local pastoral institutes, formation centers, funding agencies, networks of parishes, Catholic educational or social institutions, and other church-related organizations.
Our consultancy and training services focus on building local church capacity in areas such as:
We seek partnerships especially with those who desire to make a greater strategic impact in their local contexts through renewal and transformation, in response to the challenges of mission today.
Our consultancy services involve visits by EAPI resource persons to the local organizations, meetings with pastoral leaders, facilitation of communal dialogue, needs assessments, advisory services and on-going accompaniment of local personnel in order to build long-term capacity. This sometimes includes visits to EAPI by the local personnel.
Our customized training program usually comprise workshops of about 3 days to 1 or 2 weeks. On-going workshops are also provided so as to reach out to more participants or build competencies progressively. These workshops provide training which is usually not available locally.
In recent years, EAPI's extension programs have been engaged by local church organizations in countries as diverse as Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Fiji, and Micronesia.
We encourage you to contact us to explore opportunities for partnership and collaboration.
