With your help, Langham trains pastors around the world to teach the Bible, equipping them to biblically shepherd their churches.
How it Works
Regional Pastor Training
With your help, a pastor travels to an annual one-week long Langham training seminar with other pastors and lay leaders.
Local Preaching Circle
Each pastor returns to their community and forms a "Preaching Circle" with nearby pastors and lay people, to continue training and support
Pastors and lay leaders teach the Bible, biblically shepherding local believers to grow in their faith and apply God's word in their context
Christ in the Community
Churches more and more become salt and light in their communities and extend the Gospel in their families, neighborhoods, schools and work places.
Why it is Needed
It is estimated that more than 80% OF PASTORS around the world have little or no biblical training – that's more than 2 MILLION PASTORS that are not equipped to help believers in their churches understand and apply God's Word.

One Example of Transformation
When God's people hear and apply God's Word, they grow in maturity and mission. Shadrack, a local member of the church below, describes the transformation in their community, "Katani is a new place. The word of God has penetrated the area."
Langham-trained pastor Peter Mwaw, pictured in the middle, began preaching the scriptures and providing biblical, relevant solutions to local issues. Today, the church, Africa Brotherhood Church, is growing in maturity and reaching out as salt and light in their community of Katani.
