In order to serve the churches effectively, MERF has established ministry centres in Cyprus, Kenya, Egypt, Lebanon, Ethiopia, and Indonesia. These provide biblical training opportunities for local workers, and they include libraries and research facilities which are made available for pastors and others to strengthen their scriptural and theological knowledge through structured or independent study to equip them for effective ministries.
The training program is designed to be delivered in a way that does not require students to leaving their fields of ministry for a long time; the main strategy being to provide as much helpful training to as many leaders as possible in the most cost-efficient manner. This is done through organized study terms for selected groups of trainees. Some students are then selected for more intensive training designed for smaller groups.
MERF also organizes other regional training activities, including conferences, workshops, seminars, etc., under the sponsorship and oversight of local church bodies.
