STEP Seminary

Teaching to Transform partners with STEP Seminary.  STEP (Seminary Theological Evangelical Port au Prince) traces its roots back to the Evangelical School of the Bible (EEB), one of the oldest evangelical schools in the Caribbean (founded in 1942).  STEP was established in 1981 and in 1997 STEP merged with EEB and continued as STEP. STEP is associated with the Union of Evangelical Baptists in Haiti. STEP currently has around 300 students enrolled in its classes. The President of STEP, Wadestrant (Wawa) Jean-Baptiste, has invited Dr. Harlan Betz to join their faculty and serve as a professor. Dr. Betz travels to Haiti every semester to teach and mentor students and to speak at the student chapels. He also occasionally serves as the speaker for annual alumni conferences and at spiritual life conferences. He also seek to help with thier outreach to the community, including the outreach to the children in the area. Sharon hopes to travel with Harlan on occasion. She will be seeking ways the Lord may choose to use her gifts with pastor's wives, student wives, and church women. Harlan often speaks at a student or a professor’s church on the wekends… which gives him the opportunity to get to know them better and to know the church and the opportunity to know the people they work with in their daily ministries.
