Pray for Aaron and Valerie Osterbrock endorsed to train Christian leaders in East Malaysia.May 31, 2017
The Rev. Aaron and Valerie Osterbrock are endorsed to prepare for ministry in theological education in partnership with Sabah Theological Seminary, a historic International Ministries partner, in Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia. Both Valerie and Aaron are trained as theological educators, and they will work in pastoral training of primarily indigenous students in both English and Bahasa Malay across multiple levels of education. Their active participation in all aspects of seminary life will also encompass leadership in pastoral care family groups. An additional facet of their ministry will include discipling and mentoring pastors as they assist in local church ministry.
The Osterbrocks will be the only IM global servants currently serving in this Southeast Asian island country. They will be teaching at a multinational, multidenominational seminary with over 400 students. After they have raised the needed financial support and have been commissioned, the Osterbrocks will teach theological education at the seminary with an emphasis on the Master of Divinity and Bachelor Degree programs.
