Over 75% of our international pastors are not ordained. Although there is a great desire for pastoral training and education, it is often not accessible, affordable or viable. Amplified Leaders is a training initiative valuing a systems approach to preparing people, through relationships, with an informed curriculum, delivered in a locally understood form, and supported by local and global partnerships. The three essential components are:
- Pastoral Training to Ordination – Goal: Move 1,000 pastors to ordination by 2020 (estimated investment = $1,500 per pastor)
- Training the Trainers – Goal: 200 trained trainers by 2020 (estimated investment = $5,000 per trainer)
- Leadership Development – Training and coaching events, experiences, conferences, advanced degrees, etc.
