  • Population: 50 million
  • Language: Burmese
  • Major religions: 80% Buddhist, 5% evangelical

Country Overview
Myanmar (or Burma), is an underdeveloped Asian nation with an evangelical church growing close to three times the pace of the country’s population. Originally a British colony, Myanmar had a military dictatorship until a civilian government took over in March of 2016. Issues in Myanmar include: ethnic strife, a large income gap, and systematic violence against ethnic minorities.

Training Myanmar leaders in biblical exposition is strategically important to ensure spiritual vitality for the growing evangelical church in Myanmar.

Training Opportunity
After four years of successfully training 21 Burmese pastors, professors, and Bible translators in the Training National Trainers (TNT) program, we will begin phase two of our work and further develop eight of the most gifted men (Mentor Trainers) to spread our training in exposition throughout Myanmar.

Because of the gospel and our training, ethnic and ecclesiological barriers have been broken down. A sampling of our Mentor Trainer group shows just that: three professors at Reformed Theological College of Myanmar, a denominational trainer, and a pastor from the Pentecostal Church of Myanmar all are working together for the gospel’s advance.

Many have already taken the training to remote locations in Myanmar (sometimes a five-day journey away) to train remote tribes in TNT.

Our hope and prayer is that God continues to use this group of trainers to equip and encourage many for faithful expository ministry in Myanmar.
