Pastors and leaders worldwide need access to biblically based resources that prepare them to teach.
God is at work in the world, calling pastors to reach their neighbors, community, and world with the transformative Word of God. One of the greatest challenges is the need for quality resources and training for these pastors who are called to ministry. Many have as little as 1 hour of Bible training and limited access to the training and resources they need for effective ministry.
Leadership Ministries Worldwide is building networks of partners around the world to meet this challenge. Timothy Olonade, Vice President of International Training, has built relationships with organizations across Africa and Southeast Asia, where he focuses on training pastors to train and mentor other pastors around the world. In just the past few months, he has worked with over 2,800 leaders from 30 countries!
God Moves Through Collaborative Ministries
Reaching the men and women who have been called to ministry is a God-sized task – and it is only through collaborating with like-minded organizations that we can possibly accomplish it.
Will Savell of The Grace Institute works among pastors in South and Central America who are eager to receive sound biblical and theological training. Through his connections on the ground in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Cuba, Leadership Ministries Worldwide is sharing The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® with pastors who need these resources. In just the past month, more than 1,000 Spanish language books were shipped to pastors in Colombia. It is a great start, but with over 10,000 pastors requesting resources in Colombia, we are just beginning to touch the need.
Impacting Countries for Christ
As The Grace Institute reaches out to other pastors and training networks in India and Africa, Leadership Ministries Worldwide will continue to partner with them. “Collaboration is key,” Savell says. “Leadership Ministries Worldwide produces resources that preachers are hungry for.” Putting those resources in the hands of pastors on the ground in faraway places is Grace Institute’s specialty. Through our partnership, thousands of preachers worldwide will receive resources and training that empower them to impact lives, communities, and entire cultures with God’s Word.
“Preaching is a skill set you have to learn,” Savell says. “Having Leadership Ministries Worldwide’s preaching resources is a blessing as the pastors are learning biblical and theological material. What good is theological education for a pastor if he can’t communicate it faithfully to his congregation?”
