Would you partner with us?
Preparing a person for ministry is time consuming and involves a comprehensive team of people, beginning with parents in the home. Luke in his Gospel informs us that at the age of twelve Jesus was obedient to his parents and “grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52). The same is said of John the Baptist who “grew and became strong in the Spirit, and he lived in the wilderness until he appeared publicly to Israel” (Luke 1:80). Samuel also grew in stature and in favor with the LORD and with people (1 Samuel 2:26). Each one was being groomed to fulfill God’s call on their life.
Our purpose is to partner with Bible colleges throughout the Majority World, helping men and women prepare for ministry, i.e. to grow in stature and favor with both the Lord and people. Theological training is done for both the glory of God and the flourishing of people. Such preparation involves the whole person. The schools we support insist that future leaders not only gain Biblical knowledge but also grow in Godly character. If leaders are to help people “become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13), it must begin with them. The end goal is to “present everyone fully mature in Christ” (Colossians 1: 28).
This is the reason for our Sponsor a Future Leader initiative. By investing in a future church leader, we are building the Body of Christ. As our tag line on the web states: “By training Christians 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.”
