Our International Team

International Consultants (IC’s) are vital to our ministry! They come alongside the leaders in their regions through one-on-one visits, addressing challenges and seeking solutions. They provide needed support, praying with them and serving as a sounding board. Whether they are encouraging a leader whose institution is facing financial problems, facilitating at an Institute for Excellence or local workshop to better equip faculty or providing training for seminary leaders, these men and women work tirelessly to see transformational theological education, the kind that produces leaders who make a difference.

IC’s are experienced in training Christian men and women of vision, integrity and competence. Most IC’s have served in multiple capacities of leadership in seminaries, schools and other institutions, and are in some way products of one of our partner schools.


David Baer

Global Consultant for Theological Education

David serves as Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages at the Biblical Seminary of Colombia. He and his wife, Karen, work from dual ministry bases, spending half of each year near Hartford, Connecticut, USA and the other half in Colombia’s beguiling second city of Medellín. David and Karen have six adult children and nine grand-children, but are still counting on more of the latter. David was born and raised in a small Pennsylvania German town amid rolling farmland between Appalachian ridges and still feels rooted in that same modestly magnificent valley. Yet the Lord’s calling on his life has taken him far from there in support of Majority-World theological education and those who shape it and are formed by it. He served for a dozen years as the president of Overseas Council (USA) and so is no stranger to the Overseas Council Network, of which reSource Leadership International is a key member.
