We have a passion for training Christian leaders in the majority world
and it is our firm belief that this is best achieved through investing in local institutions. By training Christian leaders, we can have a positive impact on the church for generations to come; and in resourcing local theological schools, we leave a sustainable legacy.

Training Effective Christian Leaders In Their Context
Giàng (family name) A Slinh (given name) is a 28 year old Vietnamese student studying at Hanoi Bible College in Hanoi, Vietnam. He and his wife have two children. They are members of Grace Evangelical Church in a rural district of Northeast Vietnam where A Slinh participates in church activities and leads the church in worship.
He writes, “When studying at HBC, my family has faced many difficulties. With me at school, my wife has had to bear the burden of raising our children and working. Currently, my wife is suffering from right elbow pain which has been there for 2-3 months. Also, our son has to go away to school and we worry about him.”
A Big Vision for Vietnam
Since it opened in 2013, Hanoi Bible College (HBC) has grown! By 2025, HBC hopes to graduate roughly 170 students from the Bachelor of Theology program. HBC’s growth comes with a capacity challenge: they need more space. God is providing: a Vietnamese Christian is helping HBC buy 3 mixed-use buildings to use as their new campus. reSource is partnering with HBC in their fundraising for this exciting—but, not yet fully obtained—provision. The total cost is CAD $2.3 million. HBC still needs CAD $775,000.
Is There Hope?
“Common sense dictates that we flee from a troubled region, while God’s calling for the Church is to endure, to discover its prophetic role, to proclaim the love of Christ, to live out Kingdom values, and to exhibit to the world the marks of the reign of God. This is the kind of Church that is needed in the Arab world at a time like this…” – A word from Elie Haddad, President, Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS)
Pray With Us!
Join our team as we pray for our brothers and sisters around the world. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are praying for the healing of those infected and for the safety and health of all those who work in health care and serve those who are ill; that those who must carry on with work/studies/activities would be protected from this virus; that God would protect our countries and give wisdom to our leaders, so that this cloud will pass with minimum effect, that the needs of those who are most vulnerable financially would be met during these hard times; and that believers in Christ may be a clear witness to or example of the love of Jesus for others, and that God would use this time to bring people closer to Him.
