Pastor Training

Perhaps the single greatest need in the church in Asia is for trained leaders to shepherd the growing number of people coming to the Christian faith. This need is especially acute in the countries where we work. Many church leaders from poor backgrounds cannot afford much formal education, and their communities tend to have immense needs, both spiritually and otherwise. As such, local pastors and missionaries often find themselves very busy faithfully serving their congregations and communities, but with gaps in their knowledge and preparation.

We support locally-led pastor and lay church leader training by connecting pastors and missionaries to funded seminary education and/or shorter-term trainings and resources. In India, for example, several thousand local pastors and missionaries have been trained through regional conferences and HB-affiliated seminaries. 

In many countries, we are blessed to come alongside church planting trainers who are trusted to lead by organizations like The Timothy Initiative and several denominations. We encourage collaboration with other ministries to cultivate accountability, teachability, church unity, and respect.
