WE ARE FAITH-BASED CONSULTANTS ON CHILDREN’S AND FAMILY ISSUES
WE FUNCTION WITHIN PARTNERSHIPS AND TRAIN FOR MULTIPLICATION
WE ADDRESS FAMILY, CHURCH, SCHOOL, AND COMMUNITY
Petra Institute was established in 1989 as an independent Christian organisation (registered as Basilea NPC).
We work in partnership with global, national, and local denominations and organisations, helping to bring about attitude changes, and building the capacity of leaders to the benefit of children, families, and communities.
We can help your organisation, church, community, or school to gain an increased understanding of God’s heart for children.
We desire all children in Africa and the rest of the world to experience the practical, daily, life-giving love of Jesus.
Petra Institute has trained participants in more than 60 countries worldwide. We partner with various international churches and organisations to build communities where children are welcome. Our foundation is based on Biblical values and principles and we create practical change by fostering relationships. Our coursework is presented through experiential learning and our outcomes have longevity.
The DNA of Petra Institute is to train for multiplication. By equipping tutors who train others to train yet others, we increase the workforce of our partners, giving many more children the opportunity to meet and follow Christ.
We offer tutor training for each of our courses and workshops at Petra Institute. During this training, facilitators (called tutors) are equipped to present the specific course. Normally these courses are scheduled on demand by our partners. Courses on offer include:
Relational Children’s Ministry or Relational Family Ministry, Walking with Wounded Children, Anti-Bullying, God, My Baby and I, Intergenerational Faith Transference and Aftercare Centre Course.
Courses presented within partnerships
Entering the World of Children, Helping Children Grow in Faith, Entering the World of Families, and the public courses listed above.
Petra Institute is a Non-Profit Company. We have been operating by faith, God’s provision, and donations since 1989.
There are various ways that you can promote the work we do or support us, including prayer intercession, advocacy and offering your professional expertise.
