Your Gift Matched to Help Believers Grow in Christ
Today, church growth is exploding in the global south—across Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Yet, the growth is without depth as there are too few pastors and leaders and even less training and resources to equip those called to lead. This is why Langham exists–to equip pastors and leaders to effectively shepherd God’s people with God’s Word so His people can find truth, grace and hope in the Gospel—even in the midst of hard places.
What Nations in Trauma Really Need – God’s Word
In countries like Myanmar, Pakistan, Cambodia and Sri Lanka, believers are living through daily traumas like church bombings, ethnic conflicts, and charges of blasphemy. In these and other hard places, there’s a desperate need for the truth and grace of the Gospel. Yet, believers struggle to encounter God in the midst.
Why? More than 80% of their pastors lack the training they need to help them understand what God’s Word has to say in response to suffering and hardship. And there is a serious lack of biblical resources for discipleship. Let’s change that.
We need your help to equip pastors and leaders with God’s Word
Today, we have an opportunity to bring the training and resources pastors and leaders need to shepherd their people with the hope of Christ in the midst of their suffering. Will you partner with us again and see your gift doubled?
The Need: Myanmar
Your gift allows Langham to continue our work training and resourcing pastors with God’s Word in this region where Christians have been living in exile from oppressive government rule. One local pastor, a former Buddhist monk who has been trained by Langham, says “[Our church members] learn to trust in God through sermons . . . Churches need to be grounded in the Word of God to withstand the coming days.”
The Need: Cambodia
Your gift helps train pastors like Sam (pictured) who help apply the balm of God’s Word to a region still raw from the systematic murder of its people by the Khmer Rouge. Today, Sam travels around the country to train other groups of pastors—multiplying our investment as he multiplies the impact of God’s Word.
The Need: Pakistan
Your gift deepens the movement of biblical preaching already taking root in this nation where the Christian community is often marginalized and persecuted, and new believers struggle to grow. Today, hundreds of pastors are showing up for Langham’s training on how to study and share Scripture.
The Need: Sri Lanka
Miraculous, Word-inspired reconciliation is happening as members of two ethnic groups torn apart by civil war join together during Langham’s training seminars and in churches.Your gift equips the pastors and lay leaders who can promote peace and unity in a region split apart by 30 years of civil war. Pastors like Aaron, who has been trained by Langham and runs several preaching schools in the country.
In the words of one Langham leader here, “God is on the move” in the face of extreme persecution and forced conversions of Christians back to Hindu. Your gift helps expand our preaching training efforts, already impacting northern India, into other parts of the country—and it puts the South Asia Bible Commentary into the hands of the pastors and leaders who so desperately need to show their people how God’s Word speaks into local issues like the caste system, violence against women and human trafficking.
