Church Leadership Development

Educating and empowering church leaders is crucial towards bringing the Gospel and permanent change to the extreme poor. This is done through programs focused on coaching and mentoring pastors, spiritual gifts training, leadership workshops and seminary support.

“Poverty alleviation is the ministry of reconciliation: moving people closer to glorifying God by living in right relationship with God, with self, with others, and with the rest of creation.”

- Brian Fikkert, When Helping Hurts
