Did you know that 9 out of 10 churches worldwide are led by leaders that have not received adequate training? That’s 90 out of 100 churches…900 out of 1,000. This is staggering and a tremendous opportunity for the Global Church. In Operation World (if you have never looked at this resource you should), leadership development is listed as one of the top ten key issues warranting prayer. Why is adequate training so important? Because in the absence of sound leadership equipping, churches are wide open to heresies and self-inflated leadership. With the aid of adequate training, leaders are more prepared to flourish and to help their churches do the same.
