Training Pastors | Shepherding Shepherds
We believe pastors worldwide are in great need of training.
Global Sharing's Timothy Mandate is committed to addressing pastoral training needs through resources, conferences, and relationships. We believe shepherding the shepherds enhances pastoral health, promotes church growth, and fulfills the Great Commission.
The numbers say it all.
While the Global Alliance of Church Multiplication envisions the planting of 5 million churches by 2020,
they predict an astounding fail-rate of up to 70% within the first year.
And of the nearly 2.2 million pastors currently ministering worldwide,
only 5% of them are trained for pastoral ministry.
That means more than 2 million pastors need immediate equipping.
These pastors not ony need to grow in their Bible knowledge, they also need to be shepherded.
Such an investment pays huge dividends as we see these faithful servants begin to
not only teach and preach, but also shepherd their flocks well.
You can help.
“You don't need a seminary degree to be part of this ministry. Simply sharing your gift of teaching
and love for God's Word is an encouragement to pastors in developing nations.”
– Jay Ables, Timothy Mandate Director
