Our Approach

The Need

85% of pastors have no formal theological training.

The lack of access to theological education leaves the global church susceptible to false teaching and hinders them from being able to build up the body and equip believers.

Around the World

Meeting the Need

We exist to close the gap on theological education worldwide. We provide culturally appropriate discipleship and training to church leaders around the world through long-term missionary mobilization, short-term theological training trips, ministry apprenticeships, and strategic church partnerships so that local pastors are well equipped to build healthy churches.

Our Vision

Healthy Churches Making Mature Disciples

We believe that healthy local churches are God’s chosen means for making mature disciples in their communities. When pastors are equipped to teach God’s Word and shepherd their church, the gospel is spread throughout the world.

Each section includes 30 to 40 hours of teaching during a one-week training session.

Mobilizing Churches to Go
