Help us launch movements of God’s Word around the world

me-and-my-churchPartner with us to equip large numbers of pastors in the “two-thirds” world in biblical exposition. Their churches will never be the same… and neither will yours!

  • Adopt a specific TNT (Training National Trainers) group. Opportunities are available in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the former Soviet Union, including…
    • Ecuador, Papua New Guinea, India, Uganda, Tanzania, Brazil, Sudan, Central America, Cuba, Nepal, Myanmar, The Philippines
  • Send key leader(s) as part of the training team. When a North American pastor shares his training and experience, it is an incredible gift to the Church overseas.  In addition, the “church back home” benefits from a deep personal involvement with what God is doing around the world.
  • Pray by name. We’ll provide names and photos of the national pastors you’ll be impacting.  In many of our target countries, the challenges to the Church are great and the spiritual warfare intense.


Your partnership will help raise up an ever-expanding global network of national pastor-trainers….and raise the missions temperature of your church!

Three Church Partner levels

  1. Entry Point: For $5,000, your church can help sponsor one TNT (Training National Trainers) training workshop, and send a key leader as part of the teaching team.  A chance to “taste and see”.
  2. Anchor Church: Join us for the full four years, equipping the same group of national pastor-trainers (TNTers).  Provide a minimum of $10,000 per year and send 1 or 2 leaders each year as part of our teaching team.  A chance to impact the pastors and churches of an entire region.
  3. Strategic Partner: Take ownership – become the sole sponsor of a TNT group for the entire four years. Fully fund the program ($25,000-$40,000 per year) and send teams to every training. A chance to influence a nation by mentoring key national church leaders.

(The above costs are in addition to any travel expenses.)

Partner with us to launch a pastoral training movement and, at the same time, raise the missions temperature of your church.

bullmore_300_300gray_s_c1“CrossWay Association of Churches has chosen to partner with Leadership Resources because of their desire to equip men to understand and communicate the Word of God around the world.  We believe that the crying need for pastors is to rely upon the Word of God and teach it accurately, passionately, personally, and applicationally.  Leadership Resources’ emphasis on teaching and training national pastors and sending them out into their local contexts to teach other faithful men is encouraging to see, not only because it is biblical (2 Timothy 2:2), but because it is far beyond where we as Christians in the United States or Leadership Resources’ staff could go ourselves.”

—Mike Bullmore, Senior Pastor of CrossWay Community Church in Bristol, WI and Council Member of The Gospel Coalition

“Through the TNT program, Leadership Resources has not only brought a significant and continuing depth to the spiritual lives of Christian pastors in Central Asia but it has also enabled Sanibel Community Church to grow in our understanding and experience of global missions.”

—Pastor Brad Livermon, Missions Pastor, Sanibel Community Church

“If your church is passionate about the gospel and the Word of God multiplying, then LRI is a great ministry you can partner with. Not only will LRI bear fruit in other parts of the world, but they will also produce fruit within your own congregation.”

—David Smith, Pastor of Crete Reformed Church in Crete, IL. Read more about David’s experience in Ethiopia with Leadership Resources.
