Coaching Future Pastoral Leaders
Currently, I spend most of my time meeting with church leaders to establish a complete plan for leadership training in their church. It is a great encouragement for me to work with churches willing to train new leaders.
In January 2015, we began another cohort. We have also started a new four-course program to help train elders who can’t invest a lot of time into school study.
In August 2015, three men started Immerse training. It is a four-year full-time training program that takes place in the church. We praise God for these three future pastors. We pray for a lot more this year. Our partnership with Northwest Baptist Seminary helps us a lot, but we keep praying because we are asking God to provide for:
- 200 new full-time pastors, (including 45 church planters)
- 200 new elders and,
- 200 women equipped to serve in the church.
