As I reflect on my second anniversary at Leadership Ministries Worldwide, it has been an honor and a privilege to walk alongside this dedicated staff and Board of Directors focused on providing The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® to trained pastors, leaders and scholars. It is clear that God is moving in big ways at Leadership Ministries Worldwide. We have seen an unprecedented number of pastors equipped, our materials have gone out to all corners of the world, and we are on the cusp of rolling out Lystra Global – our cloud-based training and translation system.
Already this year, 6,846 books were distributed free of charge to seminaries and training organizations that train and equip pastors in the Global South who are hungry for biblical materials. In the last month, Timothy Olonade, our Vice President of International Training, trained 353 leaders throughout Africa, including pastors, professionals, and leaders in Nigeria, Uganda, and Rwanda.
Our digital training platform, Lystra Global, will launch in June 2016 at the Global Proclamation Congress in Thailand – an event project to be attended by over 5,000 Bible trainers. Using Lystra Global, our training partners can make The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® and other biblical resources easily accessible to pastors and scholars around the world.
Psalms Volume 3 is scheduled for release this summer. This is an exciting event, hailing the completion of The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® series. More than 40 years have been dedicated to developing this amazing resource. We appreciate the part you have had in bringing us this far, and we invite you to partner with us in prayer as we celebrate all that God is doing through LMW.
