“Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.”
– Habakkuk 1:5
Our ministry includes three primary elements:
- International Pastor, Youth Pastor and Church Leader Training: This program will both provide a curriculum for training leaders and deliver training to leaders in countries where poverty prevents them from receiving a formal education or quality training. As the first part of this program, various training modules and curriculums will be created and shared with international partners. These partnerships will be developed with organizations, denominations and church leaders in various countries in order to provide training opportunities. Of course, pastors and other experts will be recruited to conduct the training. Finally, it will be necessary to raise funds to cover the cost of the training events and the travel expenses of the trainers.
- International Internships & Learning Experiences: This program will bring international internships to churches throughout the United States to benefit both churches and international pastors. For churches that receive international interns, they will receive much needed support, allowing the church to learn as they help the intern learn. For the international pastors, the church will provide hands on educational experience so that those pastors may return to their own country well equipped to do ministry. Of course, this program will follow all federal and state laws. Finally, it will create opportunities for American churches and pastors to travel to countries to teach and learn from other churches, ministries and ministry leaders.
- Church Revitalization Network: This program will establish a network for church revitalization (and training to carry out such revitalization), which is open to all churches in the United States. While churches in the United States are in a state of decline, many have great members who desire to bring revitalization to their church. This network will empower and encourage congregations for the wonderful joy and responsibility of sharing the love of Jesus with the world. It will have online resources and will establish connections between member churches to learn from and support one another as they each seek to revitalize their church. This program may also include seminars and learning experiences to provide a knowledge base and processes to network churches.
