CHURCHES AND NATIONS

TRANSFORMING LEADERS CHURCHES AND NATIONS

Training Christian Leaders for effective ministry in their own culture.

Our goal is to help the growing church in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and the Pacific to have the leaders, pastors and church planters that it needs. By partnering with leading Bible colleges in these regions we can contribute directly to the health and mission of the local church and thus help build the kingdom of Jesus Christ.

In essence, Local Leaders International supports Bible Colleges which are evangelical in theology, have good governance and are strategic leaders in their nation and region.

Local Leaders International directly supports over 200 Bible Colleges in the Pacific, Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Africa.
Furthermore, over 100 additional colleges are supported by the Global Network.

THE LOCAL LEADERS STRATEGY

Develop competent Christian leaders around the globe by supporting leading Bible colleges in their context.
Through this process thousands of new leaders are trained each year as pastors, evangelists and church planters.

OUR STAFF AND BOARD

The Local Leaders team works diligently to serve our partner Bible colleges around the world. We are passionate about connecting Australian Christians to the mission of training competent leaders for the global church. Find out more about us.

GET INVOLVED

You can help Bible colleges in the Majority World to equip and train men and women who will emerge as resourceful, indigenous Christian leaders in their context. We invite you to partner with us in supporting our current programs.

Student Sponsorship

Local Leaders supports men and women who preach and teach the redeeming love of Jesus. By supporting nationals in their own country during their studies the church is assured of a steady flow of pastors, evangelists and church planters.

FACULTY SPONSORSHIP

One of the key ways to lift the standards of a Bible college is to increase the competence of the faculty. We support masters and doctoral studies for faculty members.

LOCAL ONLINE: A GLOBAL STRATEGY

The demand for online education is at an all time high. This strategy exists to support our partner colleges develop robust online education programs that are sensitive to each region.
